Book Review: 

A Flicker in the Dark by Stacy Willingham so and i think it's out some other places too and it's going to be a huge one there's been loads of hype around it and it's been sold i think in 17 countries or 17 territories which is huge and also is already being made into a tv series um being produced by emma stone on 

hbo i think it is and so it's already been picked up all over the place and you kind of know that it's going to be you know something worth taking a look at is absolutely down the line out and out a pure genre thriller it doesn't do anything wildly original it doesn't like bend 

the rules of the genre or push like any of the boundaries but actually you know it doesn't set out to do any of those things and what it does do it does really really well i think it's like an example of kind of like best-in-class type of pure thriller genre and actually the familiarity of 

it was one thing that i really really enjoyed about it you know you know what you're getting if you're a thriller reader this is like proper comfort zone reading and that's nice because you can kind of just sit back 

you know and relax as you know as you kind of would do reading a thriller and just enjoy the ride you can just enjoy where you're being taken so this story follows chloe who is um a young woman in her like early 30s um she's a psychotherapist and you know as all the best heroines have she's got some baggage 

i think it's fair to say she's got some pretty significant package um as well because actually her father is a serial killer so when she was a child six yeah teenage girls in her small town louisiana um backwater went missing they were murdered um including you know some some that she was friends with and it turned out to be her dad um which

i think you know is a pretty legit reason to have some baggage now it's the 20-year anniversary of um of these murders and you know it was big news at the time as well you know serial killers often are and things are you know starting to heat up she um has the perfect fiance 

whom her brother has not taken a like to at all so there's a nice you know there's some rumbling tensions there as the wedding approaches um and as the 20-year anniversary approaches of um you know her father's crimes the newspapers start stiffing around again and like digging up 

you know all her um old wounds are sort of getting you know peeled back open again then what happens is a girl goes missing and then another one and it soon comes to light that actually there is very likely a copycat killer on the loose someone that is inspired by her father's 

crimes appears to be doing something to honor this 20-year anniversary it can't be him because he's very much still in prison um and the story then basically is following you know as a typical thriller would do who's doing the crimes and also you know how they are impacting her because 

it very also um becomes apparent quite quickly that whoever is doing those crimes these crimes knows a lot more about chloe um than the average joe so um it's really hard i think to write a thriller that is not predictable 

so it's kind of you know it's predictable in the structure and you know it's got that familiarity but actually i think familiarity is a better word than predictability and because there are twists and turns galore in this book actually you know just when you think you know which direction you're being pointed down she's pointing you off in the other direction and that is actually really really satisfying i liked that an awful lot in this book and because 

i have a really bad habit of guessing guessing who who the killers are in thrillers you know i don't say that to sound like a complete and out of plonk um because i wish i didn't but like so often i'm like they did it um and it's always a bit disappointing when it turns out to be right and i actually 

i did pick it in this book but it didn't matter because there were so many other surprising things along the way that actually you know that one review it wasn't all on that one reveal like sometimes it is in thrillers isn't it like it's that this one person or there's one moment that absolutely everything is building up to 

if you guess it you're like oh man because you wanted to have your expectations you served but actually in this one it's not one moment it's got all these other little bits along the way that you're just like oh that's good that's clever 

i didn't see that coming so it kind of didn't matter i was still like ridiculously satisfied that i um you know i had gone along on this journey and if you um my last review um was for the leviathan by rosie hobbs which is a totally totally different book it's like i described it as the literary end of literary 

it really is it's like a hardcore literary um hard work enjoyable but hard work novel whereas this i just i think i read it in like an afternoon not even a day it was just because it's got massive print as well like i just tore through 

it whereas the other one took me like a week of my brain dribbling out my ears and and this one was just such a palette cleanser it was total fun total escapism um and a really really satisfying read that i can totally see why it's going to come out everywhere and everyone's going to love it.
