"[A] daringly plotted, emotionally eviscerating psychological thriller." --Publishers Weekly
"Impossible-to-see-it-coming.... [Kubica] takes readers to a whole new level of deceit and irony." --Booklist "[Local Woman Missing] will appeal to fans of Lisa Jackson and Gregg Olsen.... The twists, turns, and an unpredictable ending make it irresistible." --Library Journal "I'm shamelessly addicted to Mary Kubica's juicy, unpredictable reads, as much for her well-rounded, fully human, flawed characters as her sizzling plots--and she just keeps getting better. LOCAL WOMAN MISSING is a propulsive journey through a winding maze of secrets, leading to a jaw-dropping twist that I never saw coming. Loved every minute." --Joshilyn Jackson, New York Times bestselling author of Never Have I Ever "Dark and twisty, with all the white-knuckle tension and jaw-dropping surprises readers have come to expect from Mary Kubica." --Riley Sager, New York Times bestselling author of Home Before Dark "Complex, richly atmospheric and thoroughly riveting, Local Woman Missing is a thoughtful look at how even the most innocuous secrets between happy couples and beloved friends in tightly knit neighborhoods can sometimes turn so unexpectedly and terrifyingly deadly." --Kimberly McCreight, New York Times bestselling author of Reconstructing Amelia and A Good Marriage
