We’re thrilled to share that New York Times bestseller Fiona Barton‘s compelling new novel, Local Gone Missing, is published in the US and Canada today (Penguin Random House / Berkley, Penguin Random House Canada). This must-read thriller follows Detective Elise King, who investigates a man’s sudden disappearance in a sleepy seaside town where the locals and weekenders are at odds.

 Fiona Barton is the New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author of The Widow, which took the world by storm in 2016 and has been published into 36 territories to date. We cannot wait to see readers in the US get their hands on Local Gone Missing, which published in the UK earlier this month. Early buzz for Fiona’s latest offering has been incredible to see, as Local Gone Missing was an Apple Best of the Month (June 2022) and has received some stellar reviews:

‘I absolutely loved this smart, twisty novel’ Shari Lapena

‘A dark and twisty read’ Nita Prose

I was completely swept up in this story of a seaside town full of dark secrets – the pace was perfect, the characters so skilfully drawn and the ending was masterful. I loved it!’ Katherine Faulkner

Congratulations, Fiona! We are so excited to see Local Gone Missing launch in North America!
