First-ever book revealing the whole story of the iconic 'black' Shadows and the Shadowman who made it all happen. Coverage of the Can-Am years occupies the book's first half, starting with the jaw-droppingly radical, low-line car of 1970 and culminating in the championship winner of 1974. Formula 1, 1973-80, fills the book's second half, highlighted by Alan Jones's 1977 Austrian Grand Prix victory. Also included are sections on Shadow's Formula 5000 and second-generation Can-Am efforts.

In 1970 Pete Lyons, then a journalist reporting on North America's famed 'no-rules' Can-Am series, covered Shadow's debut race. Three seasons later, now following Formula 1 worldwide, he attended Shadow's first Grand Prix and witnessed the team's progress through four seasons. Lyons's continuing career has included prestigious positions with publications such as Autosport, AutoWeek, Car and Driver, Road & Track and Vintage Motorsport, and he also served as staff editor of the monthly RACECAR. Among 15 books published to date, his Can-Am (1995) was a bestseller and earned one of his two Dean Batchelor awards from the Motor Press Guild for Excellence in Journalism. Most recently, his Lotus 72 (Evro, 2019) has been very well received
