Books 1 - 2 of the pulsating Jake Tanner terror thriller series: Standstill and Floor 68.


In the oppressive London summer heat, two brothers orchestrate the deadliest terror attack the city has ever seen. Three airport-bound trains are brought to a standstill with thousands held hostage. And when the dust settles, the Metropolitan Police are left scrambling for solutions.

The terrorists promise to let hostages go, but first Detective Jake Tanner must play his part in their twisted games. The rules are simple--follow them, and no one gets hurt. Break them, and the consequences will be fatal. But when he discovers the identity of one of the passengers, Jake realises this isn’t just about saving hostages.

Battling a faceless figure who’s appointed himself God, Jake must save the passengers before the city descends into utter mayhem.

But how far will he go? Will he save everyone in time? And will he like the chilling truth he learns along the way?


Jake Tanner is tormented by memories of the people he’s failed to save. Hoping to give his spinning mind a break, the detective treats his wife and kids to a fancy meal in London’s tallest building. He never expected that his family time would be cut short by a biological terrorist…

Cut off from outside help and struggling with his PTSD, Jake may be the only man who can save the hostages and thwart the horrific attack. As a deadly game of cat-and-mouse begins, the detective must conquer his own demons to outwit a deranged mastermind. If he fails, the airborne pathogen's devious purpose will decimate humanity's future.

Can Jake defeat a savage psychopath before the bomb annihilates humankind?

This is a really compelling series that absolutely had me biting my nails! I could not put these books down until the end and then, it kept coming to mind as if I was still in the book. Jake is an awesome character. I am hoping for more by this author.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
