I fell in love with ice hockey over twenty years ago and, unfortunately, tried to play. I was an awful skater and an even worse puck handler... Needless to say, my amateur team was very happy to see me go! On top of that, I later developed arthritis in my low back and hips. Getting checked to the ice thirty times a week will do a number on the joints.
The only good thing to come out of my obsession was this book:
How far would you go to win your lifelong dream?
When filmmaker Zoë Whipple agrees to shoot a documentary about a hockey team’s season, she doesn’t sign on for scandal, crime and murder. But she discovers that players, rabid to win the championship, don’t let morality or the law stand in the way of their ambitions.
When a rookie dies from cardiac arrest, Zoë is saddened but not suspicious until another player, in the grip of ’roid rage, goes berserk on the ice and ends up in the hospital. Digging into the mess reveals illegal painkillers and steroid abuse among most of the team. Zoë, whose reputation for honest filmmaking is at stake, threatens to expose the scandals.
Is her new lover, team captain “Crash” Crasseau, responsible for the harassment and vandalism meant to scare her into silence? When Crasseau’s ex-wife is murdered, and Zoë’s daughter is threatened, Zoë must choose between her career ambitions and her child’s safety.
