From the various cases of previous murders, there is one thing in common, namely the victim’s bones are missing. There are allegations that the bone was taken by the perpetrator who was later nicknamed “The Bone Collector”. Apart from the bones taken, there was some kind of clue paper on each victim, for example on a husband and wife who were killed separately or a student who died miserably.
Actually they could have saved the victims. However, because Rhyme and Donaghy were too late to decode the perpetrator’s code, the victim died first. Rhyme and Donaghy find similarities in the case they are examining with a story in a novel. If you follow the storyline of the novel, the next target is the grandfather and his grandson.

Review for the film The Bone Collector
The audience said that the story idea for The Bone Collector movie was really crazy. Because the story shows that there is a detective who is solving cases without even touching the scene of the incident. Because the detective uses other people as eyes and hands to work at the crime scene.
In terms of story, The Bone Collector is perfect even though the execution for the film is somewhat ruined. Apparently the duet between Angelina Jolie and Denzel Washington was not enough to make the audience’s assessment of the film great.
In contrast to the assessment of the film version, the novel that became the story idea actually received very good reviews. The rating for the original version of the novel is on a scale of 4 out of 5 with the number of reviews reaching 900 and of course increasing.
What’s extraordinary about the story is how Rhyme as a detective compiles one clue after another to find the culprit.
