Waterstones Says

Chloe's father's murderous crimes come back to haunt her in Willingham's white-knuckle ride of a thriller about a missing girl and a family trauma that refuses to remain buried.

Waterstones Thriller of the Month for September 2022

She thought the murders had stopped. She was wrong.

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 fiance. 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...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Spectacular [...] This beautifully constructed story sends a shiver down the spine as it twists and turns to a conclusion that leaves you gasping for breath.' - The Daily Mail

'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

'Tense, twisty and threatening, A Flicker in the Dark will make you abandon your box sets.' - Val McDermid

'This was dark! Edge of your seen stuff... incredibly atmospheric and tricky.' - Platinum

'An impressive debut - full of switchback twists.' - Cara Hunter

'Haunting, lyrical and utterly compelling! These are just a few of the words of praise one could use to describe A Flicker in the Dark. Author Willingham takes us on an unstoppable journey through the psychology of evil, and of courage (in many senses), all told in a pitch-perfect literary style. Once you start reading, you will not put it down.' - Jeffery Deaver

'A Flicker in the Dark is a bright debut indeed, a beautifully written tale set in an oppressively small Louisiana town where everyone remembers everything. Chloe is a terrific heroine whose justified paranoia will have you jumping at shadows and suspecting everyone you know. A brilliant new crime-writing talent has arrived.' - Jane Casey

'A top-notch thriller that kept me up late, desperately turning pages. An astonishingly accomplished debut.' - Jo Spain

'Don't trust anyone in this wickedly good debut. A twisty and propulsive thriller.' - Peter Swanson

Those who know me will know that although I love to read books of all genres, I have a soft-spot for crime and thrillers in particular. Serial killers, murder, intriguing puzzles and clever twists are all the things I... More
