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.

Press Reviews

  • Irvine Welsh

    This is more than a stunning debut. It reminds me how vacuous, banal and insipid most highly-touted fiction is. [He] asks - and answers - some big, uncomfortable questions about the nature of our humanity
  • Chuck Palahniuk

    Smudges the line between comedy and horror, cruelty and mercy. His remarkable stories are challenging and upsetting, but never boring
  • Bret Easton Ellis

    Big, riveting stories about tough guys in trouble...the best I've read in a long time from a young writer
  • Peter Straub

    He is a writer of immense power and surprising, accurate insights
  • Scott Smith, author of <i>The Ruins</i> and <i>A Simple Plan<i>

    Lean and crisp... Disquieting, disturbing
  • Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author

    Disturbing, disgusting, and bone-chilling. I am delighted
