The story follows Chloe Davis, a psychologist in Baton Rouge who is preparing for her wedding when a series of teenage girls go missing in the area. This tragedy brings back haunting memories from Chloe’s past when, as a 21-year-old, six teenage girls disappeared in her small Louisiana town. Her own father was eventually caught and confessed to the crimes, leaving Chloe and her family to deal with the aftermath.
Willingham masterfully weaves together the past and present, as Chloe grapples with the trauma of her past while trying to uncover the truth behind the current disappearances. The writing is hauntingly beautiful, adding depth and dimension to the already gripping plot.
As Chloe delves deeper into the investigation, she begins to feel like she’s losing control of her life once again. Meanwhile, her patients at the clinic where she works add their own layers of complexity to the story, as she must navigate the psychological effects of trauma and grief.
The tension in A Flicker in the Dark is palpable, as the reader becomes fully invested in Chloe’s quest for truth and justice. Willingham’s writing is both poetic and sharp, leaving the reader hanging on every word.
But what truly sets A Flicker in the Dark apart from other thrillers is the way it explores the psychology of evil. As Chloe comes face-to-face with the killer, the novel delves into the twisted mind of someone capable of such crimes. It’s a chilling reminder of how easily the darkness can take hold of us all.
All in all, A Flicker in the Dark is a stunning debut from an author with a bright future ahead of her.
