Local Girl Missing.jpg

Local Girl Missing by Claire Douglas

Summer is a great time for ghost stories and thrillers around a camp fire, but you won’t need the fire pit to get the same feelings of fear and suspense from Local Girl Missing. A decaying Victorian pier, a missing girl, an isolated vacation house, and a haunting spectral figure are just some of the spine-tingling elements that make Local Girl Missing a must read for summer (or any other time of the year for that matter).
