The Marsh King's Daughter

(2017)
A novel by

 
 
Packed with gripping suspense and powerful storytelling, The Marsh King's Daughter is a unique one-more-page, read-in-one-sitting thriller that you'll remember for ever.


'I was born two years into my mother's captivity. She was three weeks shy of seventeen. If I had known then what I do now, things would have been a lot different. I would have been a lot more understanding of my mother. I wouldn't have adored my father.'

When the notorious child abductor known as the Marsh King escapes from a maximum security prison, Helena immediately suspects that she and her two young daughters are in danger.

No one, not even her husband, knows the truth about Helena's past: they don't know that she was born into captivity, that she had no contact with the outside world before the age of twelve - or that her father raised her to be a killer.

And they don't know that the Marsh King can survive and hunt in the wilderness better than anyone... except, perhaps his own daughter.

The Marsh King's Daughter will captivate you from the start and chill you to the bone.
