LoveReading View on Crossfire

Felix is Dick’s younger of his two sons and he increasingly over the last 10 or so years helped his father in the writing of his thrilling racing novels and for the last forty years worked with him on the research for each one. The last four thrillers of which this is the fourth credit both Dick and Felix for the writing and clearly much of Dick’s talent has rubbed off very successfully to his younger son for Crossfire is Francis at his sublime best, mixing the murky world of racing with murder and intrigue.  Dick’s sad death at the start of 2010 will no doubt put the pressure on Felix to take on his father’s mantle – we certainly hope so.

Crossfire Synopsis

Captain Thomas Forsyth's tour of Afghanistan is cut brutally short when he is badly wounded by a roadside bomb. Returning home, to his mother - a racehorse trainer and the 'First Lady' of racing - Tom discovers 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?
