Description

Un thriller psicológico hipnotizador, La hija del pantano es la historia de una mujer que debe arriesgar todo lo que tiene para capturar al peligroso hombre que moldeó su pasado y que ahora amenaza con robarle su futuro: su padre.



Helena tiene por fin la vida que merece. Un devoto marido, dos hermosas hijas, un negocio que llena sus días. Pero cuando un recluso emplea la violencia para escapar de una prisión cercana, se da cuenta de que ha sido una tonta al pensar que podría dejar atrás sus peores momentos.



Helena tiene un secreto: es el resultado de un rapto. Su padre secuestró a su madre cuando esta era adolescente y la mantuvo en una remota cabaña en los pantanos de la Península superior de Michigan. Sin electricidad, sin calefacción, sin agua corriente. Helena, nacida dos años después del secuestro, adoraba su infancia. Y a pesar del comportamiento a veces brutal de su padre, también lo quería... hasta que averiguó exactamente lo salvaje que podía ser una persona. Veinte años después, ella ha enterrado su pasado tan profundamente que ni siquiera su marido sabe la verdad.



Pero ahora su padre ha matado a dos guardias y ha desaparecido en un pantano que conoce mejor que nadie en este mundo. La policía comienza su caza, pero Helena sabe que no tienen ninguna posibilidad. Sabe que solo hay una persona que cuenta con las estrategias necesarias para encontrar a alguien preparado para sobrevivir a una catástrofe y al que el mundo llama el Rey del pantano... porque solo hay una persona a la que él mismo entrenó su hija.



Riveting, haunting, and set against a stunning landscape, this is a transcendent novel of psychological suspense, the story of a woman who must risk everything she has and use every skill she possesses to hunt down the dangerous man who shaped her past and now 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 Michigan'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 nature--fishing, tracking, hunting. And despite her father'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 doesn'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 don't stand a chance. Knows that only one person has the skills to find the survivalist the world calls the Marsh King--because only one person was ever trained by him: his daughter.
