Description

The disappearance of his soccer team's leading scorer during the championship finals leads sixteen-year-old Matt to investigate and entangles him in a possible kidnapping. If the Mavericks win just a few more games, they'll make it to the national soccer championship. There's only one catch. Their star player, Caleb Riggins, has disappeared. Matt Carr is determined to find his teammate and solve the mystery. He just didn't realize it would involve attack dogs, a mysterious golden bridge and a family who may not be who they seem. And the big game is only days away.

Editorial Reviews

"Each character is distinct and believable and acts consistently in accordance with his/her traits. The author is clearly knowledgeable about soccer game-play."

— Resource Links

"The short, action-packed chapters, the tongue-in-cheek humour, the soccer game descriptions, and the general absence of thick, descriptive passages, will be to the liking of many pre-teen boys."

— CM Magazine
