The young hockey star even travels with his own bodyguards. The police, it turns out, suspect the "Russian Mob" is planning to kidnap Slava and hold him for ransom! And sure enough, when Slava and his new Screech Owls friends give his bodyguards the slip, the Mob moves in. But the villains end up with more captives than they intended...Kidnapped in Sweden is the fifth book in the Screech Owls Series. Roy MacGregor has been involved in hockey all his life. Growing up in Huntsville, Ontario, he played minor hockey, including several years against Bobby Orr, who was playing in nearby Parry Sound. He later returned to the game when he and his family settled in Ottawa, where he works for the Ottawa Citizen and is the Southam National Sports Columnist. He still plays old-timers hockey and has been a minor-hockey coach for more than a decade. Roy MacGregor is the author of several classics in the literature of hockey. Home Game, which he wrote with Ken Dryden, is a former No. 1 national bestseller. He also wrote the game's best-known novel, The Last Season, and had another bestseller in 1993 with Road Games: A Year in the Life of the NHL. His most recent work of adult non-fiction is The Home Team: Fathers, Sons and Hockey. He has also written books about Native leaders and the Ottawa Valley. Roy MacGregor is now a senior columnist for the National Post.
