Críticas:

"One of the continent's master craftsmen of sporting prose" and "as fine a writer as can be found in any field."
--Sports Illustrated
"Part CSI, part LA Law, part Hockey Night In Canada -- Gare Joyce deserves a championship ring for his uncanny portrayal of Brad Shade, the earthy, educated hockey scout sleuth. This is sports writing, crime writing and just plain writing as good as it gets."
-- Roy MacGregor, author of Wayne Gretzky's Ghost
"The Code is surely one of the great 'insider' fictions of the professional hockey world. Funny and full of dirty fights both on and off the ice, Gare Joyce delivers an astringent look into big league machinations and the human costs of playing the game."
-- Andrew Pyper, author of The Guardians
"Gare Joyce writes with a guts and gusto. A refreshing new, rough and ready, voice. Cunning, funny and powerful."
-- Robert Rotenberg, author of The Guilty Plea
"One of the continent's master craftsmen of sporting prose" and "as fine a writer as can be found in any field."
--Sports Illustrated

"This thriller has enough juice to satisfy those who've never been to a rink."
---Library Journal

"[Joyce's] knowledgeable, engagingly cynical perspective on hockey should prove compelling even for those readers with no interest in the sport."

Reseña del editor:

Brad Shade has been just about everywhere hockey is played. He has ridden the buses in the minors, shared dressing rooms with the legends of the game, closed bars with guys destined for the Hall of Fame, and dropped the gloves with journeymen like himself who’ll never get near it. Now that he’s retired after fourteen years of bouncing around the league, he’s living out of a suitcase and scouting for Los Angeles, where someone in management owes him a favour from his playing days.
But when the brutally murdered body of coaching legend Red Hanratty turns up in the parking lot after an old-timers charity game, Shade’s job of scouting the local phenomenon starts to overlap with investigating the killing of the kid’s grizzled old coach.
From small-town rinks to the draft tables in the big league, G.B. Joyce introduces us to a character with a self-deprecating sense of humour and an oversized will to win—and weaves a story out of strands of resentment, greed, and fear that span generations and build to a surprising, thrilling conclusion.
