The author of the "New York Times "bestselling "Goosebumps "and "Fear Street "series uses his knack for creating terror to tap into some very grown up fears in this terrifying horror novel centered on a town in the grip of a sinister revolt.
Travel writer Lea Sutter finds herself on a small island off the coast of South Carolina, at the wrong place at the wrong time, and barely escapes with her life when a freak hurricane cuts through the island. In the storm's aftermath, she discovers two orphaned boys twins and impulsively decides to adopt them. The boys seem amiable and immensely grateful; Lea's family is not quite so pleased. But no one could anticipate the twins true nature or predict that within a few weeks time, Lea's husband, a controversial child psychologist, will be implicated in two brutal murders.
For the millions of readers who grew up on "Goosebumps, "and for every fan of deviously inventive horror, this is a creepy, fun read ("Library Journal") from a beloved master of the genre.

Praise For Red Rain

“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. Stine enjoys 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!”
