The Bride Collector

By Ted Dekker (Audiobook, 2011)
FBI Special agent Brad Raines is facing his toughest case yet. A Denver serial killer has killed four beautiful young women, leaving a bridal veil at each crime scene, and he's picking up his pace. Unable to crack the case, Raines appeals for help from a most unusual source: residents of the Center for Wellbeing and Intelligence, a private psychiatric institution for mentally ill individuals whose are extraordinarily gifted.

It's there that he meets Paradise, a young woman who witnessed her father murder her family and barely escaped his hand. Diagnosed with schizophrenia, Paradise may also have an extrasensory gift: the ability to experience the final moments of a person's life when she touches the dead body.

In a desperate attempt to find the killer, Raines enlists Paradise's help. In an effort to win her trust, he befriends this strange young woman and begins to see in her qualities that most 'sane people' sorely lack. Gradually, he starts to question whether sanity resides outside the hospital walls...or inside.

As the Bride Collector picks up the pace-and volume-of his gruesome crucifixions, the case becomes even more personal to Raines when his friend and colleague, a beautiful young forensic psychologist, becomes the Bride Collector's next target.

The FBI believes that the killer plans to murder seven women. Can Paradise help before it's too late?

  • Rave endorsements for BONEMAN'S DAUGHTERS:

      "Ted Dekker is a true master of thrillers, and this is his best." - Nelson DeMille

    "It doesn't just get under your skin. It crawls there, nests, and raises its head with a bitter tug, as if it's living within you." - Brad Meltzer

    "...a tour-de-force of suspense that demands to be read in one sitting." - James Rollins

  • "Robert Petkoff masterfully portrays intelligence officer Ryan Evans's personality change after he experiences torture in the Middle East. Petkoff's versatile vocal skills deliver a compelling plot that is classic Dekker. In particular, Petkoff's depiction of the insane workings of the serial killer's mind is riveting." (AudioFile Magazine on BoneMan's Daughters).
