Read an Excerpt

Big Frank tapped on my driver's side window with the tire iron. It was a gentle tap, but it sounded like thunder.

I shook my head.

He lifted his hand. Swung the tire iron down. I barely managed to shift out of the way as it crashed through the window. Pieces of glass sprayed my leather hockey coat and my head.

Hockey is Ray Hockaday's life. He has dreams of the NHL - serious dreams. Known for playing smart, he's the center for the Medicine Hat Tigers. Unfortunately his new coach seems to know his secret. Ray is scared. The brutal, physical side of hockey terrifies him, but according to the coach it's all part of the game and he better show he can handle it.

It turns out that the scary, physical stuff is not going to be isolated to just the hockey rink for Ray. Vlad, a Russian teammate, is suddenly the center of some frightening, unwanted attention. Vlad also has a secret - one that seems to be hidden in his mouth. Ray finds himself in the middle of international intrigue including thugs, car chases, and secret documents.

TIGER THREAT is edge of your seat, hold on to your hat action. Written in the high interest, lower reading level style, Sigmund Brouwer takes readers into hockey action and mystery/spy thriller adventure all at the same time. This quick read might be just the thing to hook reluctant readers and get them ready for more.
