The motto of the boarding school to which Tommy Bedford is dispatched is Fortune Favours the Brave. It’s 1959 and the school bristles with bullies and sadistic staff. Tommy, a quirky loner, obsessed with cowboys and Indians, needs all the bravery he can summon. Salvation comes when his glamorous actress sister is swept off to Hollywood by one of his heroes, TV cowboy Ray Montane.
But with the Cold War looming, the sinister side of Tinsel town seeps through and Tommy and Diane soon find themselves in jeopardy.
Forty years on, Tommy has to confront his boyhood ghosts when his own son finds himself charged with murder.

read a few books already. Good mid-day movie fodder.
too contemplative as far as story content
??Gina, there were a few too many characters and happenings to follow.
