Complex, prickly and fiercely independent, Peter Roebuck became known as a first-class cricketer in England, but rose to fame internationally as a writer and broadcaster.His long-standing feud with one of the biggest names in the sport was as infamous as it was rancorous. He engendered a widespread and loyal following for fearlessly wading into controversies — match-fixing, corruption, rotten governments — that left him exposed and vulnerable. At the end, he was accused of sexual assault and the nature of his death was horrific.Chasing Shadows is an uncompromising investigation that spans multiple continents, and features unflinching testimonies from the likes of Steve Waugh, Rahul Dravid, Mike Atherton, Gideon Haigh, Ian Chappell, Jonathan Agnew and members of the Roebuck family. The authors have pieced together the fragments of an often brilliant yet uneasy life — and reveal how it all unravelled.'A brilliant investigation of a gifted and profoundly troubled man.'

The Guardian'Brave, fair-minded and compelling.'

Matthew Engel'Fair and unflinching.'

Cricketer'An important work.'
