In the dead of a Michigan winter, pieces of a snowmobile wash up near the crumbling, small town of Starvation Lake -- the same snowmobile that went down with Starvation''s legendary hockey coach years earlier. But everybody knows Coach Blackburn''s accident happened five miles away on a different lake. As rumors buzz about mysterious underground tunnels, the evidence from the snowmobile says one thing: murder.

Gus Carpenter, editor of the local newspaper, has recently returned to Starvation after a failed attempt to make it big at the "Detroit Times." In his youth, Gus was the goalie who let a state championship get away, crushing Coach''s dreams and earning the town''s enmity. Now he''s investigating the murder of his former coach. But even more unsettling to Gus are the holes in the town''s past and the gnawing suspicion that those holes may conceal some dark and disturbing secrets secrets that some of the people closest to him may have killed to keep.

From the Publisher:
When pieces from a fatal snowmobile accident that ended the life of a legendary youth hockey coach are discovered a decade later five miles from the scene, local paper editor and disgraced former hockey goalie Gus Carpenter hopes to salvage his reputation by attempting to solve the case. Original.
Bryan Gruley's first novel is a top-shelf shot. After some getting into some trouble on the job, journalist Gus Carpenter returns to his home town looking for the quiet life. But when new facts surface in the disappearance 10 years ago of the town's all-star hockey coach, Carpenter can't help but get involved.


"Gruley has either played or is obsessed with the lower depths of amateur hockey; is as familiar with the backwaters of Michigan as he is with his computer keyboard; and knows how to drag you kicking and screaming into a story so gripping that you'll probably devour it in one gulp..." - Dick Adler 02/28/2009

"Gruley, the Wall Street Journal's Chicago bureau chief, depicts small-town life and its newspaper persuasively, and he knows hockey, too...." - Art Taylor 05/13/2009

"[A]n outstanding debut..." (starred review) 01/19/2009
