Publisher's Summary

From international best-selling author Dick Francis and his son, Felix, comes a gripping new racing thriller. Captain Thomas Forsyth’s 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.
Six months of recuperation leave is a daunting prospect - but not as bleak as the probability of never rejoining his regiment. 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.... A complete and unabridged reading by Martin Jarvis.

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.
