The Troop Synopsis

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 the remote shores of Falstaff Island will be the closest thing they'll get to a proper holiday this year. Which was when he saw it...But when an emaciated figure unexpectedly stumbles into their camp begging 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 scouts of Troop 52 face a nightmare 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.

The Troop Press Reviews

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 -- Irvine Welsh

 

Smudges the line between comedy and horror, cruelty and mercy. His remarkable stories are challenging and upsetting, but never boring -- Chuck Palahniuk

 

Big, riveting stories about tough guys in trouble...the best I've read in a long time from a young writer -- Bret Easton Ellis
