Praise

“Sensationally good psychological suspense—I loved this book.” –Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series

“If you only read one thriller this year, make it The Marsh King’s Daughter. It’s sensational.” –Clare Mackintosh, New York Times bestselling author of I Let You Go

The Marsh King’s Daughter is a masterpiece of crisp prose and fine storytelling. Sinister and complex, this book’s twists and turns lead to a final confrontation so intense it will leave your heart pounding. The Marsh King’s Daughter is bound to become a classic. Read it.”–Sara Gruen, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Water for Elephants and At the Water’s Edge
 
“I was drawn into Karen Dionne’s The Marsh King’s Daughter from its first captivating sentences. Troubling, sinuous and powerfully told, you won’t be able to stop turning the pages.” –Megan Abbott, author of You Will Know Me
 
“This gorgeously written eerie suspense novel gave me chills as it raced toward an unexpected climax. I loved it!” –Karin Slaughter, author of Pretty Girls

“Expertly written, gripping, compulsively readable—The Marsh King’s Daughter is a stunner of a tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page. Karen Dionne has created a world, a mood and a heroine that you won’t forget anytime soon.” –Melanie Benjamin, New York Times bestselling author of The Swans of Fifth Avenue 

“Eerie and breathtaking, terrific and terrifying in the best possible way. Karen Dionne holds you under her spell from the first word to the last—and then some.” Tea Obreht, New York Times bestselling author of The Tiger’s Wife
 
“Totally compelling and different from anything I can remember reading before. The pull of both parents on Helena is beautifully worked. All her suffering and privations aren’t enough to free her until the book’s resolution comes, so congratulations to the author on devising such a perfect, ultimately satisfying plot.” –Peter Lovesey

“We are haunted by stories of girls imprisoned by feral misfits, and we wonder — did rescue come soon enough to save body and soul? What do they remember, and, if they remember everything, do they dare to sleep given what dreams might come? Karen Dionne’s terrifically realized new novel tells the story of the child born to such a girl and the strange, brooding survivalist who went to prison for kidnapping. When “the Marsh King” escapes from prison, his daughter, every inch her father’s child, prepares to meet him, this time on her turf. Don’t think you know how this plays out, just hand the reins to Dionne, who is completely in control of this unexpected narrative, and of your pounding heart.” –Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean
 
“In my 44 years as a published author, I don’t recall ever having written a note for a manuscript, and certainly not a note that is this enthusiastic. I’ve known Karen Dionne for many years. She asked me to look at The Marsh King’s Daughter, and I’m thrilled that I agreed—because it impressed me on so many levels that I’m dazed.  I don’t use the word “brilliant” often, but no other adjective feels adequate to describe Karen’s amazing novel. Its plot immediately grabbed me, as did its palpably vivid details, its gripping tone, and its expert handling of an unusual, awe-inspiring structure. The brooding undertone of unease that reverberates from the pages kept me spellbound, and the ultimate violent cathartic confrontation literally made me gasp. From my perspective, it doesn’t hurt to have a dog named “Rambo” in it, but of course, what Karen does with the dog is what’s important. For me it’s an understatement to say that The Marsh King’s Daughter is an exceptional achievement.” –David Morrell, author of Murder as a Fine Art; creator of the iconic character Rambo
 
“Karen Dionne’s The Marsh King’s Daughter has everything I could ask for in a psychological thriller: a stunningly fresh and confident voice, gorgeous writing, originality, and a complex protagonist I could really root for. I wish it were possible to read a book for the first time more than once so I could have the joy of discovering it all over again. Readers will love this magnificent and compelling story!” –Carla Buckley, author of The Deepest Secret
