Club Book: Mary Kubica, LOCAL WOMAN MISSING

VIRTUAL EVENT hosted by Anoka County Library

Over the last decade, thriller novelist Mary Kubica has established herself as a mainstay of the genre. The Good Girl, her 2014 breakout about an amnesiac kidnapping victim, became an Indie Next List pick and put Kubica in contention for the Goodreads Choice Award. It is currently being adapted for television – and won’t be the only of Kubica’s seven books to make it to the screen. Netflix recently purchased the rights to The Other Mrs. (2020), a modern whodunnit set in a tight-knit island community off the coast of Maine. Fellow mystery writer Karin Slaughter called this New York Times bestseller “altogether unpredictable” – a descriptor that holds true for most of Kubica’s work. Her latest, released in March, is Local Woman Missing. In this “daringly plotted, emotionally eviscerating psychological thriller” (Publishers Weekly), several women vanish without a trace from a seemingly safe and ordinary community. When one of those victims returns to town ten years later, the shocking truth upends even more lives.
