He's been a mainstay of Hollywood for decades, having written, directed and produced many movies, including “White or Black,” the 2015 drama starring Academy-Award winners Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer. Now he's released the right kind of book. From the iHeart Radio Studio I'm Unplugged and Totally Uncut with the always brilliant Mike Binder. Mike Binder has been a mainstay of Hollywood for decades, having written, directed and produced many movies, including “White or Black,” the 2015 drama starring Academy-Award winners Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer. A veteran writer for both movies and television (“Ray Donovan”), he now turns his talent to fiction with the debut thriller KEEP CALM - a heart-racing story of terrorism and betrayal at 10 Downing Street. When a bombing at the British government’s “Number 10” critically wounds the prime minister, suspicion falls on former Michigan detective Adam Tatum, an affable American with a hazy criminal history and a relatively new financial services job for which he is spectacularly unqualified. In London with his family to participate in a high-profile, high-stakes business conference—an opportunity that should have struck him as much too good to be true—he soon finds himself a global pariah on the run. The lives of his family, the political integrity of a country, hinge on his ability to expose the people who’ve framed him. Bucklig under the weight of a shell-shocked government and panicked nation, Chancellor of the Exchequer Georgia Turnbull clearly stands to gain from Tatum’s capture. So does Davina Steel, the lead investigator who looks much too young for the job and has something personal to prove. But as more questions pile up than answers, and the relationship between these uncommon women shifts from professional collaboration to friendship and desire, each will have to make unforgiving choices about self, honor, truth, and country. Razor-sharp and eminently timely, Mike Binder’s KEEP CALM “starts with a bang and never slows down” say bestselling author Lee Child - and promises to be the political thriller to watch this winter!!
