River of Wrath is a work of fiction in the murder mystery and suspense subgenres and it forms the second novel of the St. Benedict series. It is best suited to the mature teen and adult reading audiences and is penned by Alexandrea Weis and Lucas Astor. Following the chilling events of River of Ashes, readers are back with Leslie Moore and her boyfriend Derek, but life is far from simple as Leslie tries to finish high school. The discovery of a body at the riverside creates panic, and when a newcomer arrives in town, another girl goes missing. Is this coincidence? Leslie intends to find out.
Alexandrea Weis and Lucas Astor have delivered a superb follow-up that does the impossible; it is more chilling and thrilling than the first in this eerie, highly engaging series. Although the plot contains many standard and procedural elements, the twists and turns surrounding the discovery of clues and their revelations are handled deftly and feel genuine; there are no hints about the next lead. When you combine this with the detailed description of the macabre Bogue Falaya River, the gothic elements get a chance to shine, creating an atmosphere to chill readers to the bone. I admired the emotional journey charted for Leslie, which felt natural and was narrated precisely with emotion. I would not hesitate to recommend River of Wrath to fans of the series and mystery fans everywhere.
