My #Review of #AFlickerInTheDark by #StacyWillingham @svwillingham @HarperCollinsUK

The instant New York Times bestseller, soon to be a major TV series, developed by Emma Stone

Chloe Davis’ father is a serial killer.
He was convicted and jailed when she was twelve but the bodies of the girls were never found, seemingly lost in the surrounding Louisiana swamps. The case became notorious and Chloe’s family was destroyed.

His crimes stalk her like a shadow.
Now Chloe has rebuilt her life. She’s a respected psychologist in Baton Rouge and has a loving fiancé.
But she just can’t shake a tick-tick-tick of paranoia that, at any moment, it might all come crashing down.

As does something darker.
It is the anniversary of her father’s crimes, and Chloe is about to see her worst fears come true –
a girl she knows goes missing.  

The nightmare has started again…

OMG A Flicker in the Dark is a fabulous and searing thriller Debut from Stacy Willingham.

I was hooked from the first page, Chloe Davis is now a successful Psychologist but she has a damaged and secret past that is never far away from her. We travel a journey with Chloe and see her start to unravel as the crimes that haunt her past start happening again in the present.

I’m not giving anymore away! But suffice to say this is a glorious read, a super twisty thriller with many routes that take you down into where you think, as the reader, you’ve guessed the perp but you will be wrong! It is so well written by Stacy, and a brilliant plot!

I love the fact that its set in Louisiana in the USA, hot and sulty and always, in my opinion, spooky! And A Flicker in the dark does have that edgey, spooky and creepy feel to it.

The plot has so many twists is left me reeling at the end and I definitely did not guess the perp! Lots of characters reside within the pages but it is a clear and smooth read.

A whip-smart thriller that will keep you up at night!

A 5 Star Read.
