Packed with intrigue and excitement, BREAK NECK unravels at breakneck speed, revealing blackmail, bribery and corruption in this highly accomplished racing thriller.

When apprentice jockey Rory Gillespie abandons his fiancee Laura Brickhill in favour of trainer's daughter Pam Fanshaw, it's a decision made from ambition, not love. It doesn't take him long to realise his mistake, but he has to wait ten years before Laura finally buries the hatchet.

Now one of England's leading

trainers, Laura is unhappily married to wealthy property tycoon Luke Mundy. She renews her friendship with Rory by asking him to ride her best horse, Midnight Express, in Cheltenham's Two Mile Champion Chase. Shortly afterwards, Luke is killed while riding one of Laura's horses and she is arrested for manslaughter. Rory won't desert her this time and, setting out to prove Laura's innocence, he discovers that there is more than one person who will benefit from Luke's death.
