Captain Thomas Forsyth's tour of duty in Afghanistan is cut brutally short when he's badly wounded by a roadside bomb. His world is torn apart by the injury; the army is his life. Six months of leave to recuperate is a daunting prospect -- but not as bleak as the probability of never rejoining his regiment. Tom returns to his childhood home in Lambourn, where his mother is a racehorse trainer and the "First Lady" of racing. Never having seen eye to eye with her, Tom doesn't expect a hero's welcome -- but even he's not prepared for the reception that awaits him. When his mother's prize horse finishes a vastly disappointing last in a race he should have womn, Tom discovers that 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 again his military skills are tested... kill or be killed?
