Hatred, blackmail, and murder--a Brad Shade hat trick. The Black Ace reunites us with our favourite, savvy fourth-liner, with plot twists, wisecracks, and an ending that could only come from G.B. Joyce.

Thanks to Shade's work at the NHL draft last season, he gets to hold on to his job as scout for L.A.--at least for now. But a journeyman's work is never done. Shade is checking out the talent in Regina with his old friend and teammate "Chief." But when they learn of the suicide of an old teammate from their playing days in L.A., they take a sometimes violent detour through the dark side of a small town with no shortage of secrets it wants kept at almost any cost.
