“A thrilling, I-can’t-stop-reading page-turner. If Infested doesn’t make your skin crawl, check your pulse.” —Paul Tremblay, bestselling author of The Cabin at the End of the World and A Head Full of Ghosts

There’s something in the dark…watching…waiting…in this pulse-pounding young adult horror novel set in a luxury condo building haunted by a ghost with a power unlike you’ve ever seen.

Manny Rivera has just moved from Texas to the Bronx in New York. The summer before senior year should be all about hanging with his friends and making some spending money, but instead, Manny is forced to do menial tasks in his new home, a luxury condo his stepdad is managing.

Thankfully, he meets Sasha, a girl his age. Sure, she’s protesting the building, but she still turns out to be really cool. And he strikes up an unlikely friendship with Mr. Mueller, the building’s exterminator. Maybe life in the Bronx won’t be so bad.

Then the nightmares begin. And Manny swears there are cockroaches crawling everywhere…even under his skin. When building contractors start to go missing, Manny and Sasha come to the terrifying realization that Mr. Mueller is not who he says he is. Or rather, he is, but he died decades ago in a fire exactly where Manny’s new building is located. A fire that Mueller set.

Now, in a race against time, Manny must rescue his family from a deranged ghost determined to set the Bronx ablaze once again.
