This is a standalone by Luca Veste who is best known for his series of novels featuring DI David Murphy and DS Laura Rossi.


20 years ago, four teenagers went exploring in the local woods seeking to find to the supposed home of The Bone Keeper. Only three of them returned.

Now, a horrifically injured woman is found wandering the streets of Liverpool claiming to have fled the Bone Keeper.  DC Louise Henderson must convince sceptical colleagues that this urban myth might be flesh and blood.  When a body is unearthed in the woodland the woman has fled from the case takes on a much darker tone.

The disappeared have been found. And their killer is watching every move the police make.


This is a mix of the horror and the crime novel which will grip you throughout.

Like many of his books this is not at all cozy being quite dark at points but it will make you think and make you keep turning the page.
