Steeplechase jockey Kit Fielding has just ridden another winner for his patron - the Princess - when his distraught twin sister Holly comes to him with terrible news. A newspaper is printing stories which will put her husband, Bobby Allardeck, and his stables out of business.
Putting aside the age-old Fielding-Allardeck feud, Kit decides to try to find out who is behind these cruel stories. This, he quickly discovers, puts a lot of noses out of joint. Not one to be put off easily, he keeps digging, upsetting powerful and ruthless people who'll do anything to protect themselves.
But this is family and Kit will risk everything - including his neck - to find the truth . . .
Packed with intrigue and hair-raising suspense, Break In is just one of the many blockbuster thrillers from legendary crime writer Dick Francis.
