"You're Hurting Me!" Breathing heavily, his chest heaving, he loosened his grip a little. Backing away, Della saw the silver chain around his neck. Three silver skulls hung from the chain. "Oh!" They were so ugly, so realistic, so evil looking. He stared into her eyes. He seemed to be trying to read her thoughts. "What do you want?" she asked. He didn't reply. He didn't move or blink. His silence was scarier than when he talked to her. She suddenly remembered the ZAP gun. She had shoved it into her back jeans pocket. She reached for it now, felt the barrel first, then grabbed the handle. She jerked her arm back, raised the gun, and fired. A spray of yellow paint shot onto his forehead. He sputtered, surprised, then cried out angrily, and let go of her to wipe his forehead. She took off, racing, stumbling, flying along the ground. Where was she going? She didn't know. She didn't care. She only knew she would do anything to escape...

R.L. Stine, New York Times bestselling author of the Goosebumps and Fear Street series--two of the bestselling children's book series of all time--now sets his sights on adults with a terrifying new 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, his books defined horror for a generation of young readers-- readers who have now come of age. In Red Rain, Stine uses his unerring knack for creating terror to tap into some very grownup fears. 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 through the island and Lea barely escapes with her life. In the storm's aftermath, she discovers two orphaned boys--twins. Filled with a desire to do something to help, to make something good of all she witnessed, Lea impulsively decides to adopt them. The boys, Samuel and Daniel, seem amiable and immensely grateful; Lea's family back on Long Island--husband Mark, a child psychologist, 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.
