Great read! Love the plot twist, didn’t see it coming!
loved it and was actually surprised.
wow. what a surprising ending
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.
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
