______
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.
Soon he finds himself on a very different, but just as deadly, battlefield where his military skills are put to the ultimate test . . . kill or be killed?
Packed with intrigue and hair-raising suspense, Crossfire is just one of the many blockbuster thrillers from legendary crime writer Dick Francis.
