The book looks into the death of Schaedler who was found dead, aged 36, in a Borders beauty spot, with a shotgun by his side and no suicide note or motive for taking his own life. For the first time, Shades presents an intimate portrait of an incredible man, pieced together by his family, friends, managers, trainers and team-mates.
