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.
A must-read from a beloved master of the genre, "Red Rain" "will put goose bumps on even the toughest adult" (Kathy Reichs).
