A Flicker in the Dark

Summary: 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.

When Chloe Davis was twelve, six teenage girls went missing in her small Louisiana town. By the end of the summer, Chloe’s father had been arrested as a serial killer and promptly put in prison. Chloe and the rest of her family were left to grapple with the truth and try to move forward while dealing with the aftermath.

Now 20 years later, Chloe is a psychologist in private practice in Baton Rouge and getting ready for her wedding. She finally has a fragile grasp on the happiness she’s worked so hard to get. Sometimes, though, she feels as out of control of her own life as the troubled teens who are her patients. And then a local teenage girl goes missing, and then another, and that terrifying summer comes crashing back. Is she paranoid, and seeing parallels that aren’t really there, or for the second time in her life, is she about to unmask a killer?

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I was seeing this book EVERYWHERE and I was thinking about getting it, but then I decided to check out to see who was narrating it- and when I saw Karissa Vacker- well, I clicked buy in less than 5 seconds.


What I Liked:

The cover is SO creepy. SO perfect for this book.

How the story was set up- current and past storylines merging and intersecting. I loved hearing Chloe talk about flashbacks!

The twists and turns. There was a couple twists I guessed, some that surprised me and then a shocking one!


Bottom line: This book made my commute to work fly by. And Karissa Vacker is quickly becoming one of my fave narrators.
