The Troop follows Tim Riggs, a Scoutmaster who leads a yearly troop of boys into the Canadian wilderness for a a camping trip. It is tradition and a rite of passage for many young men. This year’s trip will be different though when a shockingly thin and pale man stumbles upon their campsite. The man is gaunt and he’s starving, and he’s the carrier of a deadly bio-engineered nightmare that could kill them all. This is a struggle for survival from not only the cruel elements of the Canadian wild, but also from one another.

Under his own name, The Saturday Night Ghost Club is one of Davidson’s most popular books.

One summer sees two new kids move to town and Jake invites them to join the Saturday Night Ghost Club.
