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. When the brutally murdered body of coaching legend Red Hanratty turns up the parking lot after an old-timers charity game, Shade's job of scouting the local phenom starts to overlap with investigating the killing of the grizzled old coach. Joyce introduces us to a character Canadians already love - the fourth-liner with a self-depreciating 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 builds to a surprising, thrilling conclusion. Joyce is the author of six books of sports non-fiction, most recently "The Devil and Bobby Hull".
