Brilliant....About as good as a thriller can be."--The New York Times Book Review
Helena Pelletier has a loving husband, two beautiful daughters, and a business that fills her days. But she also 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. 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 marsh. The police begin a manhunt, but Helena knows they don't stand a chance, and knows that only one person has the skills to find him: his daughter.
"A riveting page-turner" -- Robin.
(Penguin, $16.00, available in paperback 4/17.)
