An Action Adventure Sports Novel By Jim Malner
David Stone always dreamed of playing in the NHL and after a summer of intense training
in a small town, he was sitting nervously at the rookie orientation session of the
Detroit Red Wings as an undrafted walk-on. Ahead of him in both sightline
and career trajectory is Riley Sawyer, the league’s number one draft pick
and the consensus favourite to lead his team to the Stanley Cup.
David is unsure if he belongs while Riley believes everything belongs to him, an
miscalculation that makes him an outcast with his teammates and coaches.
Yet, as they both battle to make the roster a much darker reality of professional
sports will soon manifest itself and change the game they love forever.
Who could have imagined that one irresponsible night of partying in New York would
hurl them into a deadly world of Russian mobsters, professional assassins, and almost
certain death. From Detroit to New York and Nashville to Miami, the two young hockey
players discover what real team work is all about as they struggle to find their
way in the unforgiving world of professional sports while surviving in the real
world of organized crime.
