"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, author of Just the Nicest Couple, 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…

Don't miss Mary Kubica's chilling upcoming novel, She's Not Sorry, where an ICU nurse accidentally uncovers a patient's frightening past...

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.

This was a surprisingly fantastic listen. I loved the way the author pulled it together. The ending was a shocker.

This book was good, the timeline was at times chaotic and difficult to follow. In my opinion, this book had too many peoples' perspectives which was unnecessary. Overall a good read with some interesting plot twists, but not the best domestic thriller I've read lately.

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.

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.

I found this book somewhat tedious and annoying…and a bit hard to follow as it jumped around so much. Not well written.

The story was good with surprising twists and turns , however the narration was annoying to say the least aside from the male. He was very good. The ladies were hard to listen to.

I tried but could not get very far into this book. It dragged and I kept hoping the story would pick up. I tried at 2x speed but it still took too long to get interesting.

It too me MONTHS to finish it. Absolutely horrible writing in this book, none of it makes sense. It also bounces around in a way that makes it confusing. Then the end was the worst part. Wraps everything up in a chapter that doesn’t make sense at all. Narration was nice, though.

Too fantastical. Never happen in a million years. Especially the ending. That was not a suspenseful shocking twist! It was ridiculous. Go ahead. Give it a listen. You will see exactly what I mean.

Good plot and not predictable but some parts really dragged and the narrator read too slow and dramatically. I would have liked this book better had I read it myself because it would have been a fast read. Certain parts are also disturbing and drawn out excessively. Also I would have liked to know more about the missing girl after the long intro of her life and experiences with her abductors.

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!

I dont like leaving a poor reviews but honestly this book was hard to finish. If you’re currently pregnant, I would avoid this book. Lots of bad pregnancy experiences that are not always the situation in birth. It gave way to much unnecessary info and was hardly about a missing woman. Found myself fast forwarding through a lot of it. And the ending was just ehh.

Slow start that was difficult to follow initially. I had to get used to the narrator’s slow speech. The story progressively got better and was overall worth the listen despite the ending being implausible.

I listened to this in 3 days! I really could not stop listening. The multiple narrators and the back and forth in time added such a complexity to the story. I will say it took some turns I wasn't expecting and a couple parts were a little hard to get through just because of it being graphic!

Not my favorite. Such strangely detailed sections. Such pedantic sentence structure. Interesting twist but so very, very odd with the most rushed ending that didn’t hold true emotionally to the rest of the story.

It came highly recommended as an audio book. Lots of different characters and bouncing back and forth between months and years became a bit annoying. It was good, not great.

badly written, completely unrealistic and convoluted narrative, gets worse towards the end. I'd like to know, in particular, what low life couple would kidnap a child and keep it 11 years in their basement with no other reason then reading about the missing girl in some local newspaper for a few weeks.

I love a book with multiple perspectives that spans timelines but it’s hard to do well. Luckily, this one did it right and with EXCELLENT narration. It’s not a reread for me, which is my threshold for a 5 star rating, but it was very very good.

Great listen and plot twist was not expected! That's my favorite kind. There were a few parts that were rambling...like the author needed to fill a page. But, the overall book was well worth that!

I really want to know what happens, the mystery and style are amazing. But the violation descriptions are too disturbing. If you’ve ever been raped or mistreated at a pelvic exam this isn’t the read for you. It’s written too accurately and the woman’s experiences are too real/specific. I think I’ll probably wait until I shake it off and try again while skipping those parts, and hope I don’t miss too much detail. So yeah, my criticism is that the writing is too good, I guess.

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!
