Dumb as a hockey puck

Far too much high school hockey "glory years" and if you write mystery I would expect that you would have some knowledge of criminal law, police procedures, misdemeanors versus felonies, warrants & do you think police have time & resources to have roadblocks & manhunts for insignificant misdemeanors? Purloining telephone messages?

A good first mystery book

Bryan Gruley has written a very good mystery book set in a dark, cold setting perfect for the mystery that centers around a small town and hockey. I must admit, I know little about the sport of hockey, but the author's love of the sport is very evident and I learned a lot from his story-telling. The author is an extremely talented author. His words kept me interested even when I questioned whether I wanted to continue with the subject matter. Ultimately, I am glad I did because it turns out to be a very timely story for sports, coaches, recent news. The narrator did a very good job.
