About The Book
Once every 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 one another.

Raves and 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 and over-the-top....Disquieting, disturbing."
– Scott Smith, author of The Ruins and A Simple Plan
"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
"A grim microcosm of terror and desperation…haunting."
– Christopher Golden, 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
"Brilliant, and dialed to eleven on the creepy meter – an absolute blast."
– Robert Pobi, author of Eye of the Storm
"Some thrillers produce shivers, others trigger goose bumps; Cutter's graphic offering will have readers jumping out of their skin…intense…packs a powerful punch….Readers may wish to tackle this heart-pounding novel in highly-populated, well-lit areas—snacks optional."
– Kirkus Reviews
