Over the last quarter century I have read all of Dick Francis's published novels and short stories, some of them multiple times. I'm going to miss having a new Dick Francis book to look forward to. (Though I do wish all the best to his son Felix in carrying on the tradition.) Crossfire is not the best of the bunch, but it's not a misfire, either. All long-time fans will want to read it; those new to the franchise would be better served to start with Banker or Proof from the era of the best. Thank you, Dick Francis, for half a lifetime of often great writing. The world will continue reading you again and again.
