Chasing Shadows

The Life and Death of Peter Roebuck

Elliot Cartledge & Tim Lane



Part biography, part personal reflection and part investigation, Chasing Shadows: The Life And Death Of Peter Roebuck will celebrate Roebuck's immense achievements as a player, captain, writer, broadcaster and philanthropist, but not shy away from the controversies that plagued his life and hang so darkly and with such uncertainty over his shocking death. Initial investigations have already uncovered details previously unknown to the public, while some of the cricket world's giant figures have volunteered due praise - and criticism - for this remarkable figure.
