1 thought on “The Black Ace”

  1. This book looked interesting to me because I grew up in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, the locale for this story. The problem with this book is the story/plot line itself. The plot is far fetched. The story includes hockey players, hutterites, casinos, gas stations, bumbling RCMP officers, bikers, steroid-ridden high school football players, and native Canadians. Is there anything else that could be added to fulfill the stereotypical Saskatchewan culture? Oh yeah, believe it or not, the author bar [...]

  2. G.B. Joyce's "The Black Ace" (Penguin Group 2014) is about Brad Shade, a medically-retired ice hockey player-turned-recruiter who ends up in the middle of the suicide-turned-murder of a former teammate, Whisper. Slade wanted to walk away--tried to several times; he wasn't the type to put himself out for anyone--but had arrived at that point in life where his personal self-worth was suffering because of his past actions, and Slade couldn't ignore that he hadn't been the right kind of friend to Wh [...]

  3. Imitation of styles is understandable and a common practice, but if one is going to do it, it is best not to depart from the model too far. Elmore Leonard is a wonderful stylist and a perfect author to emulate. But his style is so unique that only a few missteps can derail an entire enterprise. So it is with this novel. Opened at random, you are apt to get passages like this: “A dome light shining in the back seat Two bars and a BlackBerry promising a charge for as long as it would take… A h [...]

  4. I quite enjoyed the first book (The Code) featuring pro hockey scout and amateur private eye, Brad Shade. Here, he gets tangled up in the apparent suicide of a former roommate the tiny Saskatchewan prairie town of Swift Current. Over the course of ten days, Shade finds himself battling high school football heroes, over-the-hill ex-con bikers, the local drug queen, the code of silence that surrounds the town, and his old roommate's dark past. His sidekicks for his unofficial investigation are his [...]

  5. The Black Ace, written by G.B. Joyce delivers an enjoyable mystery. I generally prefer the "professional" detective over the amateur in the mysteries I read, but the protagonist to this story, Brad Shade, a hockey scout, had enough color and character to keep me engaged. Neither am I a pro-hockey fan, but Joyce makes his references to the behind the scenes hockey world interesting.Joyce gives us a lot of interesting characters and suspects and some great settings. His writing style has been comp [...]

  6. A curious tale. Joyce must have read an awful lot of John D. MacDonald when he was younger because that particular vein of dark matter runs thick through the blood of Brad Shade. He's a B author by choice, writing in a noir shtick that works only because the locale is so peculiar. Not that Swift Current or Canada in particular is peculiar (although at times we are), just that as background for the investigation of a nefarious murder, it's a little wanting in interest. He paints the local gendarm [...]

  7. This is a very good but not great mystery about a retired hockey player and scout who hears that one of his ex teammates has committed suicide so, he decides he will go pay his respects. While there, he is approached by the player's wife who believes that it wasn't suicide at all and she wants to get to the bottom of it. Brad Shade (the player) and his associate, the chief, take it upon themselves to unravel the mystery. The book is fast paced and well written but there is nothing extraordinary [...]

  8. This book was painful. From all the crime books I've read, I've never felt so lost and without connection.I couldn't stop wondering why was I reading that book. The plot story was quite strange, predictable, and a bit boring, the characters were a bit dull and the first person just didn't feel right. I didn't feel the emotion of being there living those experiences with the character. I really expected a lot more.

  9. 2 1/2 stars. The mystery was convoluted and involved far too many players. The town and it's inhabitants were cardboard and stereotyped. Mr. Shade needs to learn to control his testosterone. And yet, I still enjoyed the story well enough. And I still like Shadow well enough to read another installment if and when it comes along.

  10. liked this one slightly more than the previous. found the "mystery" a bit more interesting. but protagonist completely departs from what we know of him (and what his girlfriend know of him. and he knows of himself) and is completely selfless for the whole book. this was kind of annoying.

  11. Any hockey fan would not want to miss this one! A different sleuthing one for mystery fans!Enjoy!

  12. Second in the Brad Shade mystery series, another satisfying noir set in hockey-crazy small town Saskatchewan.
