Someone knows where she is…
The old Victorian pier was a thing of beauty until it was
allowed to decay. It was where the youth of Oldcliffe-on-
Sea would go to hang out. It’s also where twenty-one-
year-old Sophie Collier disappeared eighteen years ago.
Francesca Howe, known as Frankie, was Sophie’s best
friend, and even now she is haunted by the mystery of
what happened to her. When Frankie gets a call from
Sophie’s brother, Daniel, informing her that human
remains have been found washed up nearby, she immediately
wonders if it could be Sophie, and returns to her old
hometown to try and find closure. Now an editor at a
local newspaper, Daniel believes that Sophie was
terrified of someone and that her death was the result of
foul play rather than “death by misadventure,” as the
Daniel arranges a holiday rental for Frankie that
overlooks the pier where Sophie disappeared. In the
middle of winter and out of season, Frankie feels
isolated and unnerved, especially when she is out on the
pier late one night and catches a glimpse of a woman who
looks like Sophie. Is the pier really haunted, as they
joked all those years ago? Could she really be seeing her
friend’s ghost? And what actually happened to her best
friend all those years ago?
Harrowing, electrifying, and thoroughly compelling, Local
Girl Missing showcases once again bestselling author
Claire Douglas’ extraordinary storytelling talent.
