“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.


  • So twisty!

    I really enjoyed this book! I had a hunch of the twist in the beginning, then I changed my mind, changed my mind again, and then once more was like “oohhh” I was right the whole time. It was a very interesting read!!!! A bit wordy at times, but none the less, extremely good.

    A good read. A bit too much repetition of Chloe’s thoughts. Otherwise enjoyable.

    Good read! Could definitely see this being made into a movie or tv show. Lots of turns and twists but also a little predictable. Overall good book though!
