This was very meh. I was intrigued to see what R. L. Stine did with writing for adults. I think it still felt kind of juvenile. I was never actually scared. The descriptions of the horror post hurricane and the murders mentioned in the synopsis were nice and squicky, but otherwise nothing felt adult. It was interesting enough that I finished to see how it all wrapped up. I would suggest this if you want to dabble in horror, but otherwise, skip it.
