Someone walked up to Joe 'Shoe' Schumacher's best friend, Patrick O'Neill, in a Vancouver restaurant and shot him dead. It looks like a professional hit, but who wanted O'Neill dead? Was it Victoria, O'Neill's beautiful but damaged wife? Was it industrialist William Hammond, O'Neill's boss, with whom Victoria had a short-lived affair? Or was it Del Tilley, Hammond's head of security, who is obsessed with Victoria? Former cop, professional wrestler, and bodyguard Joe Shoe sets out to find Patrick's killer, and along the way he uncovers dark secrets going back years -- secrets some people will kill to keep.
