Game of Shadows

From BR Bullpen

Game of Shadows: Barry Bonds, BALCO, and the Steroid Scandal that Rocked Professional Sports was published in 2006 by Gotham Books. It was written by investigate journalists Lance Williams and Mark Fainaru-Wada, who broke the BALCO scandal for the San Francisco Chronicle. Despite the subtitle for the book, it focuses on more than just Barry Bonds and the evidence he used steroids. It spends significant time on how BALCO and other steroid providers influenced track-and-field, with athletes like Marion Jones, Kelli White, C.J. Hunter, Dwain Chambers and Tim Montgomery. It covers other sports personalities, like the NFL's Bill Romanowski, and their cheating in some depth. In addition to Bonds, key baseball players discussed are Jeremy Giambi and Mark McGwire.
