He was top of the world, with numbers bettered only by Don Bradman - then captain Steve Smith led his Australian team into a cheating scandal that stunned cricket.

Media exploded and million-dollar contracts were torn up. Australia's prime minister expressed the public anger and disappointment: 'Our cricketers are role models, and cricket is synonymous with fair play.'

But there was more to the story than the actions of a few young men. A tangle of personality, politics and culture had led them to this point.

Geoff Lemon witnessed that story from commentary boxes and press conferences, and was there in South Africa for its final act. This is a frank, fearless and often humorous account of the path from Ashes high to Cape Town low, from someone who watched it all unfold.
