FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE SISTERS – ONE OF THE BEST SELLING DEBUTS OF 2015 – COMES A TENSE PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER RIPPED STRAIGHT FROM THE HEADLINES …
A town wrapped in secrets.
Twenty years ago
Twenty years ago 21-year-old Sophie Collier vanishes one night. She leaves nothing behind but a trainer on the old pier – and a hole in the heart of her best friend Francesca.
A body’s been found.
And Francesca’s drawn back to the seaside town she’s tried to forget. Perhaps the truth of what happened to Sophie will finally come out. Yet Francesca is beginning to wish she hadn’t returned.
Everywhere she turns are ghosts from her past. The same old faces and familiar haunts of her youth. But if someone knows what really happened to Sophie that night then now’s the time to find out – isn’t it?
Except sometimes discovering the truth can cost you everything you hold dear – your family, your sanity and even your life …
Another fabulous psychological thriller from Claire Douglas. The descriptions of places are so well described you feel like you are in that very place. Frankie and Sophie were best friends growing up. They were really close joined at the hip. Frankie moved away to London to escape the memories. Sophie went missing nearly nineteen years ago. Now her remains have been recovered, Sophie’s brother invites Frankie to come back to Oldcliffe-on-Sea to help Daniel find out who killed his sister on the old pier. Everyone is holding a secret. There many twist that I really enjoyed and didn’t see coming. I read sisters by Claire Douglas and enjoyed that too. But Local Girl Missing had me turning the pages fast to see what will happen next. I do highly recommend this book.
