Praised by Lee Child and Karin Slaughter, and sure to
thrill fans of The Girl on the Train and The
Widow, The Marsh Kingâ€™s Daughter is mesmerizing
psychological suspense, the story of a woman who must risk
everything to hunt down the dangerous man who shaped her
past and threatens to steal her future: her father.
At last, Helena Pelletier has the life she deserves. A
loving husband, two beautiful daughters, a business that
fills her days. Then she catches an emergency news
announcement and realizes she was a fool to think she could
ever leave her worst days behind her.
Helena has a secret: she is the product of an abduction. Her
mother was kidnapped as a teenager by her father and kept in
a remote cabin in the marshlands of Michiganâ€™s Upper
Peninsula. No electricity, no heat, no running water, not a
single human beyond the three of them. Helena, born two
years after the abduction, loved her home in natureâ€”fishing,
tracking, hunting. And despite her fatherâ€™s odd temperament
and sometimes brutal behavior, she loved him, too . . .
until she learned precisely how savage a person he could be.
More than twenty years later, she has buried her past so
soundly that even her husband doesnâ€™t know the truth. But
now her father has killed two guards, escaped from prison,
and disappeared into the marshland he knows better than
anyone else in the world. The police commence a manhunt, but
Helena knows they donâ€™t stand a chance. Knows that only one
person has the skills to find the survivalist the world
calls the Marsh Kingâ€”because only one person was ever
trained by him: his daughter.
