“Before there was J. K. Rowling, before there was Stephanie Meyer or Suzanne Collins, there was R.L. Stine. Witty, creepy, and compulsively readable, his books defined horror for a generation of young readers—readers who have now come of age.” If you ever enjoyed the Goosebumps or Fear Street series as a child or young adult, you will be happy to know that R.L. Stine is back, to scare adults with Red Rain!
Lea Sutter is a travel writer, who journeys to a small island, Cape Le Chat Noir, located off South Carolina, to write her latest travel blog. The island has a history filled with dark-magic and rumours of the dead walking amongst the living. Lea decides to attend a local ritualistic ceremony, when the island is hit by a hurricane. In the aftermath of the storm, Lea encounters chaos, death and destruction. In the ruins, she encounters two twin boys, Daniel and Samuel, who are orphaned. Lea immediately falls in love with the twin orphans and decides to adopt them and take them home with her to Long Island.
Lea’s family is hesitant to accept these two angelic boys so readily. Mark, Lea’s husband, is a child psychologist, who has just published a controversial parenting book and is wrapped up in his work. Their two children, Ira and Elena, also resent the new additions. However, no one in the family is prepared for the sudden horrific murders that begin occurring in their small suburban neighbourhood or the fact that Mark becomes the prime suspect.
