R.L. Stine, New York Times bestselling author of the Goosebumps and Fear Street series—the biggest selling children’s books of all time—delivers a terrifying new adult horror novel centered on a town in the grip of a sinister revolt.
Before there was J.K. Rowling, before there was Stephenie Meyer or Suzanne Collins, there was R.L. Stine. Witty, creepy, and compulsively readable, he defined horror for a generation of young readers—readers who have now come of age.
Travel writer Lea Sutter finds herself on a small island off the coast of South Carolina, the wrong place at the wrong time. A merciless, unanticipated hurricane cuts a path of destruction and Lea barely escapes with her life. In the storm’s aftermath, she discovers orphaned twin boys and impulsively decides to adopt them. The boys, Samuel and Daniel, seem amiable and immensely grateful; Lea’s family back on Long Island—husband Mark and their two children, Ira and Elena—aren’t quite so pleased. But even they can’t anticipate the twins’ true nature—or predict that, within a few weeks’ time, Mark will wind up implicated in two brutal murders, with the police narrowing in.
For the millions of readers who grew up on Goosebumps, and for every fan of deviously inventive horror, this is a must-read from a beloved master of the genre.

R.L. Stine invented the teen horror genre with Fear Street, the bestselling teen horror series of all time. He also changed the face of children’s publishing with the mega-successful Goosebumps series, which Guinness World Records cites as the Bestselling Children’s Books ever, and went on to become a worldwide multimedia phenomenon. He lives in New York City with his wife, Jane, and their dog, Nadine.Review:
"This is the moment I've been terrified of -- when R.L. Stine decided he wasn't just going to scare children, but that he would focus his power on frightening the rest of us. Ready to be haunted by the master? RED RAIN proves he's got nightmares for us all."--Brad Meltzer
"I picked up R.L. Stine's RED RAIN and for the life of me couldn't put it down. From the opening scene--which is plenty shocking--a terrifying and original story unspools that draws the reader in like a moth to flame. The suspense builds to the breaking point and goes beyond... and beyond. This is a sophisticated thriller with real characters, crisp writing, and a wicked sense of humor. Keep this book far, far away from your kids."--Douglas Preston
"Come on! There's simply no need to frighten somebody that much. But what else should we expect from the undisputed master of fear. R.L. Stine is a name synonymous with excellence. He's made a career out of scaring children. Now he's turned his attention to adults in a dark, all-too-real-tale, that brings the unimaginable to life. Make sure the doors are locked and all of the lights are on in the house before you open this one up."--Steve Berry
"RED RAIN is a slam-bang, stay-up-all-night, leave-the-lights-on thriller. R.L. Stine has scared kids for years. Now it's our turn..."--Harlan Coben
"Leave the light on and the door locked. R.L. Stine is now scaring the bejeezus out of grown-ups. RED RAIN will put goose bumps on even the toughest adult."--Kathy Reichs
"Stine has a freshly terrifying story to tell, and he tells it with gusto, ratcheting up the chills until we're frozen in our chairs. Parents, be warned: this is emphatically not for younger readers."
"It's a page turner until the end, with short chapters that help increase the pace. Stineenjoys himself writing not for kids but about them."
"Stine's story is a creepy, fun read...."
"With this brilliantly written novel "Red Rain," Stine proves that he definitely has it in him to challenge the greats in the Thriller/Horror genre ... think Dean Koontz, Douglas Preston, Harlan Coben and then amp-it-up by a hundred!"
