There is no greater reward for a hockey player than winning the Stanley Cup. The Ultimate Prize chronicles the evolution of the sport from the first recorded game played in 1875 to the 2002 Champion Detroit Red Wings. Photographs and statistics of teams, coaches, players, owners, and hockey executives are listed year by year. Facts, legends, and lore will engross the reader. Unique among team sports trophies, the Stanley Cup has been called "the people's trophy." It travels the globe making public appearances up to 300 days of the year. The names of the men (and some women!) who have won it are engraved right on the Cup itself. Hockey players of all ages dream not just of winning the championship but of actually hoisting the glittering silver trophy high above their heads. It is one of sport's ultimate icons and perhaps the world's best-known piece of folk art. Included in The Ultimate Prize are chapters on Stanley Cup heroes, top play-off moments, and the history of the Stanley family. Did you know that Lord Stanley never watched a team that won his trophy, nor ever played the game himself? All seven of his sons played hockey as a team and were outstanding athletes. Daughter Isobel Stanley played the game, too. In truth, the Stanley family is every bit as responsible for the "Stanley Cup legacy" as his Lordship himself. The Ultimate Prize—misspelled player and team names, wrong names, erroneous years won, and even double listing of players. Every hockey fan or sports enthusiast will want a copy of this treasure.

The new President, Sabo Achaba, isn't going to fold hands in Aso Rock. He sends the security service, the SSS and soon his special elite guards, the B-Gang to get rid of the supposedly sole gunman. But The Dean is proving difficult to get that it seems the combined forces of the SSS and B-Gang are not professional enough. Meanwhile, The Dean, the intractable assassin, glides slowly with his team to the major target-General Achaba in Aso Rock. They call it Operation Octopus . A racing, hat-topping, suspense-filled thriller that mirrors an era steeped in military adventurism in Nigeria's not-too-distant past.

Ryder Carrigan may never be an NHL superstar, and that suits him just fine. He doesn't need individual awards-he just wants his name etched on hockey's ultimate prize, and he doesn't want anything to distract him on his path to get there. Especially not some silly bachelor auction that he's roped into participating in. After putting her career first for too long, television reporter Jessica Rowan is searching for a quiet guy to settle down with. She has no interest in hockey or hockey players, and certainly not in the Generals' bachelor auction that she's forced to cover for her TV station. Jess is furious when a friend bids for her to land a date with the Generals' winger, but when Ryder and Jess come face to face, will their priorities change as they realize the ultimate prize-love-might be right there before them?
