About Local Woman Missing

People don't just disappear without a trace...

Shelby Tebow is the first to go missing. Not long after, Meredith Dickey and her six-year-old daughter, Delilah, vanish just blocks away from where Shelby was last seen, striking fear into their once-peaceful community. Are these incidents connected? After an elusive search that yields more questions than answers, the case eventually goes cold.

Now, eleven years later, Delilah shockingly returns. Everyone wants to know what happened to her, but no one is prepared for what they'll find...

In this smart and chilling thriller, master of suspense and New York Times bestselling author Mary Kubica takes domestic secrets to a whole new level, showing that some people will stop at nothing to keep the truth buried.

"I'm shamelessly addicted to Mary Kubica's juicy, unpredictable reads, as much for her well-rounded, fully human, flawed characters as her sizzling plots--and she just keeps getting better. LOCAL WOMAN MISSING is a propulsive journey through a winding maze of secrets, leading to a jaw-dropping twist that I never saw coming. Loved every minute." --Joshilyn Jackson, New York Times bestselling author of Never Have I Ever

"Dark and twisty, with all the white-knuckle tension and jaw-dropping surprises readers have come to expect from Mary Kubica." --Riley Sager, New York Times bestselling author of Home Before Dark

Join NCJWSTL for our May Lunch & Learn as we watch and discuss “Segregated by Design,” a powerful and engaging video that details how our federal, state, and local governments segregated metropolitan areas, including St. Louis, by imposing unconstitutional residential policies.

St. Louis is divided along many lines and race plays a role in every one of those divisions. It determines our future because if you make a transparent map of racial segregation and lay it over other maps – political power, cultural influence, health, wealth, education, and employment – the pattern repeats itself. Why was segregation more dramatic here in St. Louis than it was in other Midwestern cities? Why hasn’t it lifted as quickly?

Lisa Mandel, a realtor working to create affordable housing opportunities in St. Louis, a member of the Urban Land Institute, a Metro Housing Task Force member, and a part of the St. Patrick’s Center Landlord Advisory Group, will also present on the impact of these policies in St. Louis.
