Peter Scattergood is a Philadelphia Assistant District Attorney, a relentless and clever prosecutor who has just landed the biggest case of his career--a double homicide, involving the mayor's nephew and his mistress. This is not the best time for his wife to walk out on their crumbling marriage and to disappear. As Peter tries to find his wife, and to build his case, he is drawn into an affair with an alluring stranger named Cassandra, a woman whose greatest skill is arousing suspicion. Break and Enter is an intense, intricate thriller about the thresholds we must cross in order to get at the truth.

Praise for Break and Enter

"Suspenseful and unpredictable to the very last page."--Chicago Tribune

"In this intensely felt first novel, Mr. Harrison heroically balances the philosophical drama of a man's crisis of faith with the puzzle-narrative of a legal whodunit. . . . Amazing."--The New York Times Book Review

"Utterly entertaining . . . One is tempted to say the words, 'Move over, Scott Turow,' and stop there . . . Succeeds on a level that touches us more deeply than the ordinary thriller."--The Washington Post Book World

"A complex, absorbing thriller . . . Harrison is a gifted storyteller with the ability both to surprise and to satisfy."--The San Diego Union-Tribune

"Colin Harrison is the class act of the urban thriller."--Entertainment Weekly
