What you need to know before your trail

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 sceptical 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.

Travel Guide


The author states that all of the locations found in this book exist but that some minor details have been changed to expanded to better tell this story. When you read this novel, you’ll see why:

The novel opens ominously in a place usually seen as a nice nature reserve:

But is it also where the Bone Keeper lives? Trees, forest, open and yet hidden park land:
“This is the place”

“A hush fell over them. The wind rippled unseen trees, leaves and branches coming to life. The air grew colder as they came to a stop ahead of her.”
“The Bone Keeper lives here”…. “People have seen it”
Never has a parkland seemed so dark or tunnels so eerie. Mixed with darkness, dim light and kids messing around daring each other to enter the tunnel…

We all had childhood myths that frightened us and stories we used to tell our friends. The woods in Luca Veste’s Liverpool are certainly not the teddy bears would have had their picnic that’s for sure. Parks can be creepy at the best of times and this one carries its myth and spreads the fear across the city

Plenty of locations in this one, but the most frightening is inside your head…
