Summary: A frightening novel written in the bestselling traditions of Stephen King and Scott Smith. Boy Scouts live by the motto "Be Prepared." However, nothing can prepare this group of young boys and their scoutmaster for what they encounter on a small, deserted island, as they settle down for a weekend of campfires, merit badges, and survival lessons. Everything changes when a haggard stranger in tattered clothing appears out of nowhere and collapses on the campers' doorstep. Before the night is through, this stranger will end up infecting one of the troop's own with a bioengineered horror that's straight out of their worst nightmares.
