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 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.

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.

Falling in love could break her heart.

Brianna Reagan's life fell apart when her husband, an Army Ranger, was killed in combat. Now, three years later, she and her young son, Sam, have started a new life in Tide's Way. She's determined to protect herself from more heartache.

But then she meets Sam's Cub Scout leader, tall, sexy Will Cameron. Will takes one look at the gorgeous blonde and decides his hunt for a temporary apartment is over. There's a space available in Brianna's building.

Sam adores Will and has become best pals with Will's nephew, Rick. Brianna quickly learns that Will is a North Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper, excelling on and off the job in activities that challenge him mentally and physically. He relishes living life on the edge: rock-climbing, sky-diving, riding motorcycles, and pushing himself to be the best at whatever he does.

He's putting himself in the line of danger, just as her late husband did. And he's hoping for a promotion that would transfer him to a state-wide task force, meaning he'll say goodbye to her, Sam, and Tide's Way.

As she struggles to remain "just a friend," Will brings tender, patient romance into her life--with the promise of hot passion, when she's ready.

Can she resist? And what happens if her worst fears come true?

"A masterwork of horror."— Time

Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be.

Charles Talent Manx has a gift of his own. He likes to take children for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the vanity plate NOS4A2. In the Wraith, he and his innocent guests can slip out of the everyday world and onto hidden roads that lead to an astonishing playground of amusements he calls Christmasland. The journey across the highway of Charlie's twisted imagination transforms his precious passengers, leaving them as terrifying and unstoppable as their benefactor.

Then comes the day when Vic goes looking for trouble...and finds her way to Charlie. That was a lifetime ago. Now, the only kid ever to escape Charlie's evil is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx hasn't stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. On the road again, he won't slow down until he's taken his revenge. He's after something very special—something Vic can never replace.

As a life-and-death battle of wills builds, Vic McQueen prepares to destroy Charlie once and for all—or die trying.
