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.

Beneath the Mountain
Author: Luca D'Andrea
In Luca D’Andrea’s atmospheric and brilliant thriller, set in a small mountain community in the majestic Italian Dolomites, an outsider must uncover the truth about a triple murder that has gone unsolved for thirty years. New York City native Jeremiah Salinger is one half of a hot-shot documentary-making team. He and his partner, Mike, made a reality show about roadies that skyrocketed them to fame. But now Salinger’s left that all behind, to move with his wife, Annelise, and young daughter, Clara, to the remote part of Italy where Annelise grew up—the Alto Adige. Nestled in the Dolomites, this breathtaking, rural region that was once part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire remains more Austro than Italian. Locals speak a strange, ancient dialect—Ladino—and root for Germany (against Italy) in the world cup. Annelise’s small town—Siebenhoch—is close-knit to say the least and does not take kindly to out-of-towners. When Salinger decides to make a documentary about the mountain rescue group, the mission goes horribly awry, leaving him the only survivor. He blames himself, and so—it seems—does everyone else in Siebenhoch. Spiraling into a deep depression, he begins having terrible, recurrent nightmares. Only his little girl Clara can put a smile on his face. But when he takes Clara to the Bletterbach Gorge—a canyon rich in fossil remains—he accidentally overhears a conversation that gives his life renewed focus. In 1985, three students were murdered there, their bodies savaged, limbs severed and strewn by a killer who was never found. Although Salinger knows this is a tightlipped community, one where he is definitely persona non grata, he becomes obsessed with solving this mystery and is convinced it is all that can keep him sane. And as Salinger unearths the long kept secrets of this small town, one by one, the terrifying truth is eventually revealed about the horrifying crime that marked an entire village. Completely engrossing and deeply atmospheric, Beneath The Mountain is a thriller par excellence. “Can be compared (with no fear of hyperbole) to Stephen King and Jo Nesbø.”—La Repubblica

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. 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. A Michigan Notable Book!

1895 London is scared. A killer haunts the city's streets; the poor are hungry; crime bosses are taking control; the police force is stretched to the breaking point. The rich turn to Sherlock Holmes, but the celebrated private detective rarely visits the densely populated streets of South London, where the crimes are sleazier and the people are poorer. In the dark corner of Southwark, victims turn to a man who despises Holmes, his wealthy clientele and his showy forensic approach to crime: Arrowood—self-taught psychologist, occasional drunkard and private investigator. When a man mysteriously disappears and Arrowood's best lead is viciously stabbed before his eyes, he and his sidekick Barnett face their toughest quest yet: to capture the head of the most notorious gang in London… In the bestselling tradition of Anthony Horowitz and Andrew Taylor, this gloriously dark crime debut will haunt readers long after the final page has been turned.

It is winter on Gotland, and fourteen-year-old Fanny is missing. She had no friends to speak of other than the horses she took care of at the local racing stable, and seems to have been an unhappy and isolated teenager, the daughter of an absent Jamaican musician and an instable Swedish mother. Is her disappearance somehow connected to the recent brutal murder of alcoholic photographer Henry Dahlström, who had won a large sum of money at the racetrack right before his death? Inspector Anders Knutas and his team investigate under pressure from the media. Fanny is finally found, strangled to death and left on a lonely heath, covered by moss and branches. At the same time, grainy but explicit photographs of the girl with a stranger are discovered, hidden in Dahlström's darkroom. Intrepid TV journalist Johan Berg, sent from Stockholm to cover the two deaths, pushes the investigation one decisive step ahead while still trying to resolve his relationship with Emma, which has been simmering since they first met during the investigation into a series of murders on Gotland this past summer. All evidence points to one of Fanny's coworkers at the stable, an American who has left the country for a short vacation. As Knutas and his team wait for his return to make the arrest, the inspector takes a well-deserved weekend off with an old friend, and at the lonely cottage in the woods, the pieces finally fit together. But this time, Knutas has gotten too close. . . .
