When Brad Shade arrives in Swift Current in the wake of an old friendÂs suicide, all he wants to do is make an appearance at the funeral and get back home. But Mitzi, the grieving widow, canÂt believe her husband took his own life, especially when his multimillion-dollar business is thriving. When Shade starts asking questions, he ends up taking a sometimes violent detour through the dark side of a small prairie town that has no shortage of secrets it wants kept at almost any cost.The second in the Brad Shade series, The Black Ace reunites us with the wisecracking former journeyman who never played by a rule he wouldnÂt bend or break for a win, who always plays to win, and doesnÂt know how to leave well enough alone.
