This is a mystery novel for the sports fan. Brad Shade is a scout for the LA franchise in the National Hockey League with its eyes on a star amateur hockey player Billy Mays Jr. In the period right before the NHL drat while he is evaluating this future star the player's coach and team doctor are killed after a game. Brad's job is now twofold evaluating Billy as a prospect but he also takes it on himself to look into who murdered the coach.
The book move along well. The characters are well developed and the final outcome of the book is satisfying. I do think The Code will appeal primarily to sports fans as there is a lot of hockey lingo and it would really be helpful if the reader had some familiarity with minor league hockey. All in all, its an impressive start for a first time novelist and his new protagonist.
