Summary

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.
