It’s 1997 and Cool Britannia’s in full swing. Oasis and Blur are top of the pops and it feels like the whole country’s sorted out for E’s and wizz.

But it’s not just UK plc that’s on a high. Life’s looking up for Frankie James too. He’s paid off his debts to London’s fiercest gang lord, Tommy Riley. His Soho Open snooker tournament is about to kick off at his club. He might even have fallen in love.

But then Frankie finds himself being blackmailed by a face from his past. They want him to steal something worth millions. It's enough to get him killed. Or banged up for life if he says no.

Frankie’s going to need every ounce of luck and guile that he’s got if he’s going to pull off the heist of the century and get out of this in one piece.

The Break is the fast-paced, thrilling third book in the Soho Nights series, by snooker champion Ronnie O’Sullivan.

Ronnie’s first crime novel draws on his early years . . . a world of gangsters and bent coppers which he writes about with uncomfortable authenticity

Running is a chaotic race through O’Sullivan’s life, but this does little to dethrone him as the people’s champion – it simply adds further to his legend

Press Association on Running

Like O’Sullivan playing at his best, the book is tight, pacey and keeps you guessing
