Crossfire

Francis Thriller

(1)

Crossfire is the new thriller from father son team Dick Francis and Felix Francis.

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?

From Felix Francis and Dick Francis, the bestselling co-authors of Dead Heat and Even Money comes Crossfire, the latest Dick Francis novel. Packed with all the hair-raising suspense and excitement readers know and love from Dick Francis, Crossfire is the most dazzling yet.

Praise for the Dick Francis novels:
'The Francis flair is clear for all to see' Daily Mail
'Spare, efficient and unflashy . . . inexorably draws you in' Daily Telegraph
'The master of suspense and intrigue' Country Life
'Still the master' Racing Post

Dick Francis was one of the most successful post-war National Hunt jockeys. On his retirement from the saddle, he published his autobiography, The Sport of Queens, before going on to write forty-three bestselling novels, a volume of short stories and the biography of Lester Piggott.

Dick Francis died in February, 2010, at the age of 89, but he remains one of the greatest thriller writers of all time.

Felix Francis is the younger of Dick's two sons. Since 2006, Felix has taken a more significant role in the writing, first with Dead Heat and then increasingly with the bestsellers, Silks and Even Money. Crossfire is the fourth novel of this father-and-son collaboration.

Portrait

Dick Francis was one of the most successful post-war National Hunt jockeys. The winner of over 350 races, he was champion jockey in 1953/1954 and rode for HM Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, most famously on Devon Loch in the 1956 Grand National. On his retirement from the saddle, he published his autobiography, The Sport of Queens, before going on to write forty-three bestselling novels, a volume of short stories (Field of 13), and the biography of Lester Piggott.

During his lifetime Dick Francis received many awards, amongst them the prestigious Crime Writers' Association's Cartier Diamond Dagger for his outstanding contribution to the genre, and three 'best novel' Edgar Allan Poe awards from The Mystery Writers of America. In 1996 he was named by them as Grand Master for a lifetime's achievement. In 1998 he was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, and was awarded a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List of 2000.

Dick Francis died in February 2010, at the age of eighty-nine, but he remains one of the greatest thriller writers of all time.

Laut Verlag ist dieses das letzte Buch, das Vater Francis und Sohn gemeinsam geschrieben haben.

Nach dem letzten, in dem es fast nur um das Wettggeschäft ging, das mir undurchschaubar geblieben war, war ich ja zunächst skeptisch. Aber es gab wieder einen Francis nachgewohntem Muster: ein lädierter Held ( diesmal aktuell aus dem Afghanistan-Krieg) der seiner Mutter aus einer heiklen Situation helfen will. Dabei gerät er selbst in Gefahr. Das ganze liest sich wieder flüssig und spannend. Hoffentlich kann Felix Francis auch ohne seinen Vater so weiterschreiben.
