Sudden Death Overtime - by Steve Vernon - Fun on ice!

4 of 5 Stars

A group of old men, who played hockey nearly all of their lives, take on the occupants of a mysterious black bus.

This fun little novella shows just how tough hockey players are.  Especially when they're armed with garlic and broken hockey sticks, as stakes.

Set in Labrador, in the province of Newfoundland - hockey country, for sure.  I figured this would be fun between playoff games for Lord Stanley's cup, and I wasn't wrong.  Plus, any story which mentions Gordon Lightfoot's classic, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald", is OK in my book.  

Available from Crossroad Press or you can get it for free for your Kindle if you have Amazon Prime and want to make it this months selection from the Kindle lending library.
