Publisher's Summary

Captain Thomas Forsyth's second tour of Afghanistan is cut brutally short when he's badly wounded by a roadside bomb. Tom's world is torn apart by the injury - the Army is his life. The thought of never rejoining his regiment is a terrifying prospect and one that he is not willing to entertain.
Tom returns to Lambourn, to his childhood home, where his mother is a racehorse trainer and the 'First Lady' of racing. Never having seen eye to eye with his parents, Tom doesn't expect a hero's welcome - but even he's not prepared for the reception that awaits him.
When his mother's prize horse finishes a disappointing last place in a race he should have won, Tom discovers that the training business is on the edge, and facing a threat far more dangerous than a run of bad form. Tom finds himself on a very different, but just as deadly, battlefield where his military skills are tested ... kill or be killed?

Crossfire is too much army and too American

I was curious as to whether this posthumous Dick Francis/Felix Francis book would be a good read. Sadly, it would be fine if you are interested in the army and its battles, rules and regulations. But even apart from that, my greatest problem, and the reason I only read three-quarters of the book was that the americanisms drove me to despair! Written by two Englismen,read by an Englishman, set in that most English of counties and yet we had 'parking lots', 'divided highways', etc all the time. It bacame so distracting that, for the first time ever, I did not finish my favourite author's latest book. Shame on the editors for not spotting it. When I read books written by Americans and/or set in the USA I expect American language. I have all his books, and have read and re-read them all, but that is the last I shall read, don't waste your money on it.
