"Starts with a bang and never slows down--a very superior high-stakes thriller." --#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child

When a bombing at 10 Downing Street wounds the Prime Minister and tests Great Britain's resolve, American ex-cop Adam Tatum must confront a conspiracy in the highest halls of power

Former Michigan detective Adam Tatum receives an unexpected offer, a golden opportunity that seems almost too good to be true. He travels to 10 Downing Street to participate in a high-stakes conference. Immediately after his visit, a bomb detonates, wounding the prime minister and placing Adam Tatum squarely in the crosshairs of suspicion.

Sensing a setup, Tatum flees with his family, desperately fighting for survival in an unfamiliar country. The lives of his children, the future of his marriage, and the fate of a nation depend on Tatum exposing the conspirators who pegged him for a fall.

Georgia Turnbull, the chancellor of the exchequer, and Davina Steel, the lead investigator, both stand to gain from the successful manhunt of Adam Tatum. But, as motives emerge and desires ignite, each must decide what they're really after.

Layered plots, crackling dialogue, and propulsive action mark Keep Calm , the riveting debut thriller from award-winning actor, director, and screenwriter Mike Binder.

This very talented screenwriter, actor, comedian, and director should stick to what he does best, because writing novels is not one of them. Disappointing and completely unplausible.

The basic idea/plot of this book is interesting, but the execution is poor. The multiple plots are quite interesting initially, and the book moves along and keeps the reader's interest. The biggest problem is the character development. The characters just do not ring true, especially when we are reading what the characters are thinking. They seem shallow, and they should have more depth than this author is able to give them. Some of the dialog is cheesy too. And then the plot falls apart toward the end of the book. I had the impression that the author wrote himself into a corner and did not know how to end the book. It was just not convincing to me. This book is just not very well written.

I loved this book! It kept me enthralled from beginning to end.

I really enjoyed this taut thriller. Binder's experience with screen writing helps the action move with real intensity. The story is good, and this stands up against many current espionage titles out there.

Stupid, ridiculous waste of time. I have lost a lot of respect for the authors who raved about this book on the dust cover.
