His life calm and ordered, his face familiar to every British household, Stuart's profound weather knowledge and accuracy have given him high status among forecasters, but no physical baptism by storm. Not, that is, until a fellow forecaster offers him a Caribbean hurricane-chasing ride in a small aeroplane as a holiday diversion. By frightening accident, Stuart learns more secrets from the flight than wind speeds - and back home in England he faces threats and danger as deadly as anything that nature can evolve. "Second Wind" is a twisting spiralling hurricane of a thriller that will defy anyone to treat the weather as an everyday topic of conversation.Hide synopsis

This is a typical Dick Francis novel with a deceptively tough hero working his way through a web of twists and turns before triumphing over the baddies. Although there are some racing links it is not primarily about racing which is a departure from most of the previous novels. It is an easy read but some of the escapes are barely believable and I didn't feel that the characters were as well described as in other books. Nonetheless i am a fan of this writer and feel that this is still worth a read.
