A high school “American Psycho.”


Along the banks of the Bogue Falaya River, sits the abandoned St. Francis Seminary. Beneath a canopy of oaks, blocked from prying eyes, the teens of St. Benedict High gather here on Fridays. The rest of the week belongs to school and family—but weekends belong to the river.

And the river belongs to Brice Devereaux.

The only child of a powerful family, Brice can do no wrong. Handsome. Charming. Intelligent. The star quarterback of the football team. The “prince” of St. Benedict is the ultimate catch.

He is also a psychopath.

A dirty family secret buried for years, Brice’s evil grows unchecked. In the shadows of the ruined St. Francis Abbey, he commits unspeakable acts on his victims and ensures their silence with threats and intimidation. Senior year, Brice sets his sights on his girlfriend’s headstrong twin sister, Leslie, who hates him. Everything he wants but cannot have, she will be his ultimate prize.

As the victim toll mounts, it becomes crystal clear that someone has to stop Brice Devereaux.

And that someone will pay with their life.

*My Thoughts*

Note: This review contains NO spoilers

Whoa! What a thrill ride into psychological terror! This is one drama-filled thriller that dives heavily into very real issues that young adults face today. Alexandrea Weis and Lucas Astor weaved a riveting twisted story with multi-dimensional characters that kept me gasping with each turn of the page. But, what comes around goes around, right?!? Hmmm... Well, you gotta read it to find out what I mean...Haha!

So... Enter this dark and twisted world at your own risk. But, I promise you that this heart-pounding, gripping thriller will keep you at the "edge of your seat" and emotionally involved with these complex characters. Death By The River was an artistically well-written suspense thriller, with a hint of romance, that everyone should read.
