Street Light by R.L. Herron is the third book in the Reichold Street Trilogy. It also happens to be the first book in the series that I have read. Street Light is sort of a follow up book of all the events that have occurred in the first two, yet it also contains its own events.

Not having read the first two books in the Reichold Street Trilogy, I was a little lost at first, but R.L. Herron was quick to fix that by revealing pieces of major events that occurred in the earlier books. The Reichold Street Trilogy follows the lives of a group of friends from their teenage years, through Vietnam, and a deadly stalker. In Street Light, the Reichold Street gang thought they had finally escaped the person that was trying to ruin their lives. Little did they know that evil has many faces and they are not safe on their own territory.

I found Street Light hard to put down, especially after R.L. Herron revealed a little of what happened in the other books. I especially liked how R.L. Herron gave each character’s perspective by having every chapter told by a different character. My favorite character was Donnie, just because he was lovable and seemed to have lost the most. The friendship that the group had was amazing. I found myself regretting that I have never had a lifelong friendship like them.

R.L. Herron has made me want to read his previous books in the Reichold Street Trilogy, just so I can make sure I get the full story. If they are anything like Street Light then they are great. I recommend everyone to read Street Light, but my advice is to start with the first book, Reichold Street.

In 'Street Light' a much anticipated romance between two of the main characters did not occur. However, it does not disappoint. A mysterious drive-by shooting is expanded and explained while a new character is introduced and evolves with a terrifying plot of murder and mayhem. Once again R. L. Herron is spellbinding and captures the reader to the point of pulling him into the story. When I finished the book I was wishing for a number four. Once again I could not put the book down.

'Street Light' is the third book in R. L. Herron's Reichold Street series. Herron is master craftsman at grabbing the reader and transporting them into the story. His first two books introduced us to the Reichold Street cast and followed them into adulthood. The third story picks up where the second one leaves off and moves towards tying up all the loose ends and lingering questions.

I was pleasantly surprised by the manner in which the author portrayed the multitude of complex emotions his characters endured—the highs and the lows, while convincingly setting up the climax that would bring about the sad ending to the third book of a great series. Well done Mr. Herron!
