R.L. Stine, New York Times bestselling author of the
Goosebumps and Fear Street seriesâ€”the biggest selling
childrenâ€™s books of all timeâ€”delivers a terrifying new adult
horror novel centered on a town in the grip of a sinister
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 readersâ€”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 stormâ€™s aftermath, she discovers orphaned twin boys and
impulsively decides to adopt them. The boys, Samuel and
Daniel, seem amiable and immensely grateful; Leaâ€™s family
back on Long Islandâ€”husband Mark and their two children, Ira
and Elenaâ€”arenâ€™t quite so pleased. But even they canâ€™t
anticipate the twinsâ€™ true natureâ€”or predict that, within a
few weeksâ€™ 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.
