Winner of the inaugural James Herbert Award, THE TROOP is a novel that cannot fail to get under your skin...

He felt something touch his hand. Which is when he looked down.

For the scouts of Troop 52, three days of camping, hiking and survival lessons on Falstaff Island is as close as they'll get to a proper holiday.

Which was when he saw it.

But when an emaciated figure stumbles into their camp asking for food, the trip takes a horrifying turn. The man is not just hungry, he's sick. Sick in a way they have never seen before.

Which was when he screamed.

Cut off from the mainland, the troop face a terror far worse than anything they could have made up around a campfire. To survive they will have to fight their fears, the elements ... and eventually each other.

MEDIA REVIEWS
THE TROOP scared the hell out of me, and I couldn't put it down. This is old-school horror at its best. Not for the faint-hearted, but for the rest of us sick puppies, it's a perfect gift for a winter night. -- Stephen King
Lean and crisp ... Disquieting, disturbing -- Scott Smith, author of The Ruins and A Simple Plan
Disturbing, disgusting, and bone-chilling. I am delighted -- Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author
Nick Cutter pulls out all the stops in The Troop. This is a brilliant and deeply disturbing novel that you absolutely cannot put down. Highly recommended -- Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Code Zero and Dead of Night
A grim microcosm of terror and desperation ... haunting -- Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author
Nick Cutter brings a bone-chilling spin to a classic horror scenario in The Troop. It's Lord of the Flies meets Night of the Creeps, and I enjoyed it immensely -- Mira Grant, New York Times bestselling author
Suspenseful ... sinister ... horrifying' * Library Journal *
