Great read! Love the plot twist, didn’t see it coming!
Good book! Pretty predictable however. I didn’t finish it but ffw to the end to listen to what I already guessed. I would have enjoyed it more if I selected it for free from the VIP section. The narrator was great!
wow. what a surprising ending
loved it and was actually surprised.
I loved this book and can't wait to see more from this author.
Thie book always kept me guessing. ALthough it was a little long, there were alot of twists and turns to keep me interested.
I found the ending to be a bit contrived and difficult to follow at times. I felt rather unsatisfied at the end. I think it has to do with the protagonist's drug usage; an unreliable narrator gives me trust issues.
Too many implausibility to be a good book. But it was OK.
All of it was so unrealistic it was hard to continue. Don’t waste a credit.
Very good, I really enjoyed the book as well as the narration and did not see the twist coming at all!
A nice thriller. Has you guessing till the end.
Very predictable and uneventful…. Very slow to read and hard to keep my attention. I enjoyed the narrator, she had a great tone and was easy to listen to.
So predictable. Which made it quite boring.
Well done! Kept thinking I knew who did it and kept being wrong! Very clever! Narrator was mostly good, but sometimes it was hard to keep the male voices straight…all sounded the same.
Exciting twists and turns!
Enjoyed this book. Entertaining storyline.
Really keeps you guessing
Karissa Vacker is the perfect narrator. Both books by Stacy Willingham Karissa narrated and listening to her makes me want to listen more. The story has many unexpected twists. I love about this author is that it just does just stop when you find out the ending it doesn't just stop. She gives you the after story. I hate when you read/ listen to a story and then the ending happened and still want to hear what happened after. Did they stay together, where does the main character end up. She give it. It give you a bit a satisfaction to know. . Great book ! Wish there were more from Stacy Willingham. Hopefully there will be soon. And don't lose Karissa. She's Great!
I enjoyed the book. The character development and twists and turns were good. However, the ending felt rushed.
Narrator was good at changing her voice when different characters were speaking
Great book and the narrator is fabulous!!
Very well written and read. Love the suspense of the storyline.
Definitely kept me wondering. I had so many theories but great book!
Loved this book! I could not put this book down. I’m not a big reader but I finished this book in 2 days, it’s that good. The suspense, mystery, and twists to this book is by far phenomenal. This books deserves more stars!
Kind of predictable
Loved this! I would listen 100 times again. What a plot twist!!!!
Riveting story. Kept me guessing. Great narration. Definitely recommend
Great story with lots of surprises
one of the best books i have read
I have to say it was sorely lacking in character development. I didn't enjoy the main character, and I didn't care much for anyone else. It was enjoyable enough, but I feel like there was not enough resolve.
This was a good book. Very well written. Had me guessing. Enjoyed the narrator.
loved it! thought i had everything figured out, but boy was i wrong. great mystery
Started a little slow for me but ended up being really interesting with lots of plot twists and kept me guessing. I liked it very much. I don’t like when the women narrators read for the male characters by making their voices deeper. It just sounds stupid to me but they all do it so it’s just the nit with audiobooks I suppose. She wasn’t bad though. I would recommend. It’s a good story.
This was a very interesting book. The narrator voiced the lines very well. The way this story plays out really draws you in and gives you a look into the characters. The ending and twists were amazing. Very well written.
So good and suspenseful!
Great book! Kept me interested from the start. The narrator was great for this one! Highly recommend!
Loved this book! Highly recommend!
Exciting book, best thriller I’ve heard in awhile.
Thought I knew who did it, boy was I surprised.
Ending was a total surprise.
Loved this book and the narrator is amazing!
Good debut thriller, exciting as an audiobook. Anything normal about Chloe’s life ended the summer she was twelve when the six teenage girls went missing and her father was convicted and sent to prison, and her mother tried to kill herself and went into care shortly thereafter. Chloe has worked hard at dealing with the aftermath of all this tragedy. She’s a psychologist counseling troubled teens. She’s engaged to a wonderful man. Her brother is her rock.
But even before teenage girls once again begin to go missing, Chloe has a lot of unresolved issues: drug use that she explains away to herself, fears and suspicions about everyone in her life, memories she can’t stop, her aversion to a relationship with her mother. She’s holding it together – mostly – but when murders start up again things quickly fall apart and Chloe has trouble knowing what is real, whose motives and actions to trust, what memories to believe.
A Flicker in the Dark is an excellent debut novel by an author that shows promise. Chloe has obviously suffered but her actions and the lies she justifies to herself make it hard to fully sympathize with her. This adds to the suspense. What might Chloe be hiding, or imagining? The small number of characters also adds to the suspense. Somebody has to be committing the new murders. Her father is still in prison, but is he pulling the strings? Suspicion jumps around and around: her father, her brother, her fiancé, the father of one of the victims, the journalist who has been almost stalking her? Or could Chloe possibly have some role? Is there more about her we don’t know?
The story moves along at a quick pace. The ending was satisfying and not altogether predictable, but the narrative did bog down at the end, as if the author couldn’t quite figure out how to make to characters interact to present the conclusion so rather resorted to something like a psychological analysis of people and conditions. All in all, however, this was suspenseful and exciting and kept me extending my daily walks so I could listen longer. I expect the next novel this author writes will be tighter and I look forward to it.
Kept me interested and could not stop listening.
Terribly scary. Good listen
Great book - kept you guessing
