Flicker In The Dark

 Book: Flicker In The Dark

Author: Stacy Willingham

Pages: 384

Thisis my 66th read for the year

This is the story of Chloe Davis.  20 years ago her father was arrested for the murder of 6 teenage girls.  He is put away for life and Chloe never say or spoke to him again.  She and her older brother and mother tried to move on, but her mother never really recovered from the shock of the whole ordeal.  Now Chloe is grown up and getting married.  As she is busy planning a wedding and being a successful psychologist, murders of young girls start again.  This seems to be the work of a copy cat, but the killings are happening a little too close to home for Chloe.  A reporter approaches Chloe, and gets her looking at the different angles and trying to figure out who is killing these girls and is it possible her dad is involved.

This was an okay book.  I was a little tense reading it. It was pretty easy to figure out who the killer was almost from the beginning.  The author does send you down what she believes to be some possible paths to different people, but it really was clear.  There are a few plot holes that bothered me - things that were kind of minor, but left me saying "did I miss something?"  Also - Chloe?  Awful character.  Almost too dumb.  Lots of words in this book just to fill pages - too much description that isn't necessary.  I know a lot of people liked it, and I didn't hate it.  It was just okay.
