The Troop, by Nick Cutter

A Boy Scout trip like you’ve never imagined. They’re on an island for a weekend outing, and the troop leader has mandated they leave their cell phones at home. Hmmm, no way to call for help. A stranger arrives, who turns out to be big trouble.

The stranger has an unquenchable appetite–and eats everything in sight. But, seems to lose weight at the same time. He becomes sicker and sicker, and when the troop leader, who’s also a doctor, and one of the boys decide to operate to see if they can help the man, they discover–worms. Lots of them. And the doctor becomes infected and exhibits the same weird symptoms, the boys decide to lock him up.

They’ve become part of a lab experiment gone wrong. Really wrong.
