A Flicker in the Dark Stacy Willingham read online review & book description:

A New York Times Bestseller

“A smart, edge-of-your-seat story with plot twists you’ll never see coming. Stacy Willingham’s debut will keep you turning pages long past your bedtime.” —Karin Slaughter

When Chloe Davis was twelve, six teenage girls went missing in her small Louisiana town. By the end of the summer, her own father had confessed to the crimes and was put away for life, leaving Chloe and the rest of her family to grapple with the truth and try to move forward while dealing with the aftermath.

Now twenty years later, Chloe is a psychologist in Baton Rouge and getting ready for her wedding. While she finally has a fragile grasp on the happiness she’s worked so hard to achieve, she sometimes feels as out of control of her own life as the troubled teens who are her patients. So when a local teenage girl goes missing, and then another, that terrifying summer comes crashing back. Is she paranoid, seeing parallels from her past that aren't actually there, or for the second time in her life, is Chloe about to unmask a killer?

From debut author Stacy Willingham comes a masterfully done, lyrical thriller, certain to be the launch of an amazing career. A Flicker in the Dark is eerily compelling to the very last page.

    I couldn’t put it down, but I wanted to. Well-drawn characters who are distinct from one another. Good selection of suspects. I guessed the real murderer halfway through the book, but then got skillfully led away.

    The red herrings were to obviously red herrings, and that eliminated a lot of suspects. Then there were other glaring errors like, “I’m going to get my Ph.D., then hopefully my masters .” What??? Mistakes like that just makes what’s supposed to be a thriller, comedic. Overall the writing was often redundant, needed better editing, and certainly some fact checking, along with a more plausible plot. The entire Ethan college thing could have been/ should have been, edited out. I’ll take a hard pass on book #2 from this author. I don’t like to waste my time on careless writing.
  • Incredible!!

    I believe I’ve read every popular mystery/thriller of the last ten years, and this is one of, if not, the best. Too good to put down, but at the same time you need a few moments at the end of chapters to process everything going on. I’m very excited for her future work!!
  • Really good!

    Even though I figured out what was going on pretty early into the book, it was still really good. Will definitely ready their next book for sure!

    This book grabbed me by the shirt and pulled me into the mystery and had me working to solve the crimes like I was a character in the book. I couldn’t sleep until I finished the book. It’s that good!

    Amazing debut. Very well written and she makes all the emotions so relatable..it’s so hard to put a feeling into words and she excelled at it over and over again. I can not wait for her next book to come out.
  • Read in 24 hours it was so good!
