Preying 4 Rain is a work of fiction in the crime and thriller subgenres. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience owing to the use of explicit language throughout and some sexual situations. It was penned by the team of Steve Verba and Wayne Wright and is narrated in audiobook format by the latter. The plot follows Jamie and Soo Jin, two dangerous black widow figures seeking out lonely old souls to envelop in a seductive web until they leave Jamie and Soo all their money under mysterious circumstances.
In terms of the story itself, you’d be hard-pressed to find a tenser crime thriller within this sinister, slick, and darkly themed subgenre. Author team Steve Verba and Wayne Wright have captured a unique concept in Preying 4 Rain. It follows a villainous pathway that alternates between our central villains and a message about protecting our elders, back to the fallibility of men when they’re presented with temptation. This is extremely well balanced to deliver thrills in every chapter and I especially enjoyed the use of dialogue to move the plot along and give us more development around Jamie and Soo Jin’s central relationship.
In terms of the audiobook presentation, I found Wayne Wright’s wry narration to be smooth, clear, and effective, with just the right pacing to tell the tale. It had the ideal level of tongue-in-cheek dryness, and the wit to keep the suspense going at all the right moments. The editing is perfectly smooth and of high quality. I would recommend Preying 4 Rain to mystery fans everywhere and especially the audiobook version for a truly immersive and chilling experience.
