Shell-shocked and missing a foot-lost to an IED during his tour of duty in Afghanistan-Captain Tom Forsyth has been sent “home” by the army and, at loose ends, returns to his estranged mother’s house for the first time since he joined up at seventeen. But Josephine Kauri, the “first lady of British racing,” has always put the horses she trains first and her family last. Tom soon finds himself strained to the breaking point with his mother and stepfather.

But there’s another reason for the stifling tension at Kauri House Stables: Josephine is being blackmailed for a hefty sum every week—and forced to make her horses lose. Retirement is not an option, as she has been warned that it will result in the thing she most fears: exposure and ridicule … and prison, when the government finds out what she’s been hiding.

Tom sets out to discover and defeat this hidden enemy using his finely honed military skills.

    " I think that I can spot the hand of the son, but I will have to read more of the masters books, what a fantastic storyteller and worked for the Queen, what a life. "

    " 3 stars isn't bad; it was entertaining. Quite different as this guy comes back from Afghanistan minus a limb and finds himself back in his disfunctional family. His mother is a world-class horse trainer and Tom Forsythe, our soldier, left in his teens to serve in the British Army. His is home because he is recovering from the amputation and on leave to do so. Lots of info about military procedures and horse racing finances. Francis makes it interesting but not compelling. "
