In interviews and some marketing promos, the novel is considered to mark the 20th anniversary of ''Literature/{{Goosebumps}}'', aimed at the series' now grown-up audiences. ˛˛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. ˛˛----˛!!The novel includes the following tropes:˛˛* AlliterativeTitle: '''R'''ed '''R'''ain.˛%%* ArcWords: "Rule the school!"˛* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: The twins are dead, incinerated into ash, but Lea is as well, leaving her husband without a wife and her biological children without a mother]]˛* BrainwashedAndCrazy: One of the twins powers.
