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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “From the opening scene—which is plently shocking—a terrifying and original story unspools that draws the reader in like a moth to flame. Real characters, crisp writing, and a wicked sense of humor. Keep this book far, far away from your kids.”

    Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author

  • “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 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, New York Times bestselling author

  • “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.”


  • “A creepy, fun read. Recommended.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Shirley McCann | 2/4/2014

    " I loved the Fear Street series years ago, and R.L. Stine hasn't let me down with Red Rain. Totally unexpected ending to this fast-paced book. You won't be able to put it down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Molly | 2/1/2014

    " Not really impressed. Book was toted as suspenseful and a horror book. It was interesting and a fast read, but I wouldn't really consider this horror. The events were largely unrealistic in their simplicity and the characters unbelievably naive. Overall while the book captured my attention enough that I wanted to finish the book, I found I didn't ever feel like there was any reality to connect to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Greg | 1/21/2014

    " I was actually disappointed in this book and the reviews on the back of this book should feel bad, they were really exaggerating. I mean it was good! Really scary and twisted, but certain things I just didn't like. Like how it ended, how these "devil" children were never killed (again) or how Samuel (one of the twins) didn't stand up to his brother (Daniel) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Kevin | 1/21/2014

    " Had to read a new RL Stine book written for adults, right? About what I expected. Not bad, but not great. Easy to read and amusing horror story in sort of Stephen King lite mode. Not bad if you are in the mood for that sort of thing! "
