The Bone Keeper by Luca Veste Review

The Bone Keeper was my first read by Luca Veste but after seeing it everywhere on Instagram, I was excited to get an ARC from the Publisher via NetGalley. It seemed like a promising thriller about a serial killer trying to bring to life an urban legend of the Boogeyman. Unfortunately, I thought the story fell flat. The constant flipping between the storylines ended up being confusing at times. I usually love when a thriller goes back and forth in time to give the reader a little bit more information as the story goes on but with this one, it got confusing for some reason. 

Although I thought the book lacked in depth with the characters, it did give me the heebie-jeebies with the urban legend that plays on people's fears as well as the creepy children's rhymes. Think of The Bone Keeper as a cross between the boogeyman and the worst kind of killer. 

It was still an enjoyable read and I would still recommend it to readers who love a good scary and creepy story. 

Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks for my copy in exchange for an honest review.

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Here's a quick synopsis:
He'll slice your flesh.
Your bones he'll keep.

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

Now, a woman is found wandering the streets of Liverpool, horrifically injured, claiming to have fled the Bone Keeper. Investigating officer DC Louise Henderson must convince skeptical colleagues that this urban myth might be flesh and blood. But 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.

Happy reading,
