The "New York Times"-bestselling author of the Goosebumps and Fear Street series for children now delivers a terrifying new adult horror novel centered on a town in the grip of a sinister revolt.
From the Publisher:
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.

Author Bio
R. L. Stine
Robert Lawrence Stine began telling spooky stories when he was a young boy, and loved to stop right before the ending, leaving his little brother Bill in suspense. Stine, an avid radio listener, preferred to stay indoors and listen to the shows that featured storytelling, and also write and draw magazines instead of playing outside with his friends. After he found a portable typewriter in his parent's creepy attic, he typed all of his work--with only one finger! In 1956, at age 12, he wrote his first "book"--inspired by his love of MAD, Tales From The Crypt, and Vault of Horror magazines--entitled THE ALL-NEW BOB STINE GIGGLE BOOK, which was followed by HAH! FOR MANIACS ONLY, and many others. In the early 1960s, Stine attended Ohio State University, and was the editor of the Sundial, the university's newspaper--and he still typed with one finger! Because of the kooky humor in the newspaper, Stine created the name "Jovial Bob" for himself. After graduating in 1965, he taught for one year. In 1966, he moved to New York City where he held a succession of jobs before his luck changed in 1968, when he began working for Scholastic, Inc. Stine worked there for 16 years on magazines including Junior Scholastic and Scope, and created the offbeat magazine, Bananas. He published his first book, HOW TO BE FUNNY, in 1978. Still known as "Jovial Bob," he wore bunny ears to his first book signing which, unfortunately, was not a big success--he only signed one book! In the 1980s, he became a freelance writer, and also wrote for the popular Nickelodeon television show, EUREEKA'S CASTLE. Shortly after that, he wrote his first three young adult horror books, all of which were immediate hits. Because of the spectacular success of these books, he was asked to create a series of horror titles, which led to the series known as Fear Street. Stine's first book for the series, NEW GIRL, was published in 1989. While the Fear Street series was climbing the bookselling charts, Stine was asked to create another series of horror books for an even younger audience. The name of the series, Goosebumps, came to Stine after he read the headline, "It's Goosebumps Week on Channel 11!" in a television-listing guide. To keep him inspired, Stine keeps a tribal mask and a skeleton hanging in his writing studio. A fun fact: One Halloween, Stine's son, Matt, had some trouble taking off his frightening mask, which was the inspiration for the book, THE HAUNTED MASK.
