Terrible place in the shade, perhaps (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

hades

'terrible place' is the definition.

'shade perhaps' is the wordplay.
'perhaps' indicates anagramming the letters.
'shade' anagrammed gives 'HADES'.

'in the' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for hades that I've seen before include "The underworld where the souls of the dead live" , "Mythological abode of the dead" , "Hell of Greek myth" , "gloomy place" , "Greek god of the underworld" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
