Description

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?

Another Great Francis Novel

I love Dock and Felix Francis novels. This one had some surprises, which in hind sight I guess were out there all through the book. Well written as always!

As ever a Francis novel is great!

Once again the team of Francis has created a winner! The storyline is good with action and drama and has all the hallmarks of a Dick Francis tale. It flows well and the characters, especially that of Tom Forsythe, are well rounded and believable

Not worth the trouble

Ridiculous story. Great fan of Dick Francis but clearly Felix has a way to go.

one of my new favorites!

definitely being added to my repeat listening list! Jarvis is easy to listen to even while conveying the intensity of the most high impact scenes.

Martin Jarvis = 10 stars, story = 1

The usually hugely enjoyable D Francis fails in this yawner of a novel. All I'm going to add (which anyone who listens should appreciate) is that if the hero used, or said he was going to use, or said he *had* used, his "Voice of Command" one more time, I'd have locked him in the damn stable myself. Oops, spoiler alert. I think he used it 10 times in the last chapter alone, and fat lot of good it did him.

Martin Jarvis, as always, is a pleasure to listen to, even in this snoozefest.

Excellent story, poor narrator

Dick Francis delivers his usual excellence in murder mysteries, but Martin Jarvis does not hold a candle to Tony Britton in his narration. The nasal voice is not pleasant to listen to, and he doesn't distinguish characters very well. The emotion/inflection you would expect in most passages is off. Plus, the female characters tend to sound irritated and impatient, even when they are flirting, which is ridiculous. Unfortunately the performance detracts from the enjoyment of the book, which is an excellent story with mouth-dropping surprises. If Felix Francis is to follow in his father's foorsteps, he needs to find a better narrator for the audio versions of his books.
