The rumbling didn't come as noise. It came as a vibration that hummed in my chest. Even thought I was blindfolded, I turned my head, as if I needed my eyes to tell me what I already knew. The train was close and coming fast. With me stuck on the tracks... Left winger Nolan Andrews thinks it's great that he can play hockey in Calgary, where his older brother, Nathan, is a star center for the Hitmen. When Nolan finds out that a lot of things about Nate's new life in Calgary don't make sense—or might not even be legal—Nolan has to make some difficult choices that will affect him and his brother for the rest of their lives.

Puget Sound Council - September 1, 2009
"Brouwer once again succeeds in combining a sports themed book with an action packed dangerous situation requiring the high school-aged characters to make ethical and moral decisions. Written at a 3.2 RL, reluctant and struggling readers into the high school years will find themes that resonate and provide good conversations or writing responses for class work."
The Bookmark (BCTLA) - February 1, 2009
"Brouwer's writing technique encourages young readers to read on, as he only gives hints of what 'might' happen...Hitmen Triumph triumphs both on the ice and off."
CM Magazine - March 21, 2008
"Brouwer is certain to capture the reluctant reader's attention with this story that is both enjoyable and a real page turner! Recommended."
Resource Links - February 1, 2008
"[Sigmund Brouwer's] knowledge of sports and deft writing style flawlessly carry the story along - a page-turner in fact!"
