New York Times Bestseller

"Dark and twisty, with white-knuckle tension and jaw-dropping surprises." —Riley Sager, New York Times bestselling author of Home Before Dark

In this smart and chilling thriller, master of suspense Mary Kubica takes domestic secrets to a whole new level, showing that some people will stop at nothing to keep the truth buried.

People don't just disappear without a trace…

Shelby Tebow is the first to go missing. Not long after, Meredith Dickey and her six-year-old daughter, Delilah, vanish just blocks away from where Shelby was last seen, striking fear into their once-peaceful community. Are these incidents connected? After an elusive search that yields more questions than answers, the case eventually goes cold.

Now, eleven years later, Delilah shockingly returns. Everyone wants to know what happened to her, but no one is prepared for what they'll find…

    This book was great! The story has several plot twists that I didn’t see coming at all! Good listen!

  • World A.

    I was not able to finish

  • Kaitlin M.

    Great book. Kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. Not you average thriller- my predictions were wrong each and every time. Best one I’ve listened to in a while.

    Not predictable which I appreciate but some descriptions dragged and the narrator read slowly and dramatically. I listened at 1.5 and it almost sounded normal. They needed to go back to the girls perspective to tie that up after the long intro of her life and experiences with her abductors.

  • Brenda S.

    Great story

  • Diane G.

    The narrative could have been less. Another listener said unrealistic in parts, agree. Which is why I fast forwarded in many parts. Lots of potential just falling short, with an interesting twist at the end.

  • Brenda S.

    Loved everything about it!

  • Cat T.

    Not the most "realistic" but I didn't predict the ending so I consider it a good read.

  • Brittany B.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. I enjoyed the different perceptions, the twists and turns, and I was surprised by the ending.

  • Jill J.

    This book kept calling my name. I couldn’t wait to get back to it. Didn’t see it coming! 10 out 10 recommend!

  • Ashley A.

    I really liked this story. It was unexpected and interesting.

    Local Woman Missing is a book that keeps one’s attention. It is a bit confusing, however, snd the idea of a murderer looking after a child for eleven years is a bit unbelievable. There was more evil, lying, and stupidity than I could stomach!

  • Maria S.

    Wow. I loved this book. I literally could not stop listening.

  • Christel W.

    Loved it, absolutely shocking ending!!!!

  • Kim R.

    Quick read

  • Lisa H.

    This was a book I couldn’t put down. Really enjoyed reading it and I liked the way it went back and forth on the time line, unique and kept my attention.

  • Nita C.

    I thought this plot was very implausible. There were too many holes in the story and the characters were not well developed. I found the story to be unbelievable.

  • Kerry A.

    Gripping , suspenseful read with surprising twists. Loved it!

  • Ashley B.

    It’s okay. Jumps around too much from character to character.

  • Anonymous

    Good story, surprise ending.

  • Aimee N.

    I was planning to have this audiobook last me a while - just listen to it while I get ready for the day or clean the house but I listened to it all less than two days. Loved it!
