Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"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, 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?"-- Provided by publisher.

    Twenty years after her father was convicted of murdering six girls in their small bayou town, Chloe Davis is contacted by a New York Times reporter working on an anniversary story. She puts him off, trying to focus on her Baton Rouge psychotherapy practice and her upcoming wedding. But when the reporter, Aaron Jenson, threatens to involve her ill mother, Chloe relents to a meeting and discovers that Jensen believes a copycat killer is also marking the anniversary. When Baton Rouge detectives alert Chloe that a new patient of hers, Lacey Deckler, disappeared just after leaving her office, Chloe becomes convinced that another killer lurks in her life. Could it be her own fiancée, who has been absent a lot recently and is distrusted by Chloe's brother? Or is she merely in the grip of paranoia? Certainly, the threats she has been receiving from families of her father's victims are all too real. Willingham offers taut storytelling and a heroine with compelling vulnerability. This is a strong debut recommended for domestic-suspense readers lining up next-reads. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
