A serial killer had been abducting young girls across Texas. He was hoping one of them would be his daughter, and when they disappointed him he killed them by breaking their bones until they eventually died. Six young women were killed before they made an arrest, but because of compromised evidence BoneMan has been released and is now free to pursue his passion.

Ryan Evans is a Intelligence Officer who was serving in Iraq. Captured by the enemy, he was put through an ordeal that will change his life forever. He has been made to do things no man should have to do. When he escapes, he is sent home to Texas, only to find his wife is dating the District Attorney and his daughter wants nothing to do with him. He is impulsive and explosive, which results in a restraining order keeping him from his family.

The murders had stopped for the two years Ryan was in Iraq. After his debriefing, his superiors are shocked to learn of the eerie similarities to BoneMan's modus operandi. Then the unthinkable happens. Ryan's sixteen year old daughter Bethany is abducted and people suspect that Ryan is BoneMan. His only thought is to save his daughter from this mad killer.

Soon people close to Ryan are victimized and the real BoneMan taunts him into a chase to save Bethany. Once again Ryan is called upon to commit an evil act or let his daughter face a monster alone. BoneMan's Daughters is a chilling tale of lies, evil and deception.
