Description

WINNER OF THE JAMES HERBERT AWARD FOR HORROR WRITING
"The Troop "scared the hell out of me, and I couldn t put it down. This is old-school horror at its best. Stephen King
Once a year, Scoutmaster Tim Riggs leads a troop of boys into the Canadian wilderness for a weekend camping trip a tradition as comforting and reliable as a good ghost story around a roaring bonfire. But when an unexpected intruder stumbles upon their campsite shockingly thin, disturbingly pale, and voraciously hungry Tim and the boys are exposed to something far more frightening than any tale of terror. The human carrier of a bioengineered nightmare. A horror that spreads faster than fear. A harrowing struggle for survival with no escape from the elements, the infected or each other. Part "Lord of the Flies," part "28 Days Later" and all-consuming this tightly written edge-of-your-seat thriller takes you deep into the heart of darkness, where fear feeds on sanity and terror hungers for more."

Review quote

"Lean and crisp and delightfully over-the-top. Think "Tales From the Crypt," think early Crichton, think King on coke .Disquieting, disturbing, and it's also great fun to read."--Scott Smith, author of The Ruins"
