After years without a terrorist attack on British soil, two brothers orchestrate the deadliest one that London has ever seen. In a perfectly executed attack, three trains are brought to a complete standstill on the outskirts of the city. Alone, trapped, and with the summer sun creating an inhospitable environment, the passengers are forced to breaking point.


With the memories of 7/7 still rooted firmly in the minds of the police, they're left scrambling for answers after the dust settles. The terrorists promise to let hostages go, but first Jake Tanner must play a part in their evil and insidious games. The rules are simple - follow them, and nobody gets hurt. Break them, and the consequences will be fatal.


And when Jake discovers the identity of one of the passengers, he soon realises this isn't just about saving hostages. This is personal. Fighting his way through the sweltering streets of London, he must mount his own operation to save the lives of those on board before the city descends into utter mayhem.

But how far is he willing to go? And will he like the chilling truth he learns along the way?

Standstill is the first book in the pulsating Jake Tanner Terror Thriller series. If you like gut-wrenching, nauseatingly-suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat thrill rides that'll leave you begging for sleep, you'll love this.

About the Author

Jack Probyn hasn’t experienced the world. He’s never even owned a pet. But he’d like to; there’s still time. His twenty-two years on the planet have been spent in the United Kingdom, with a few excursions overseas — a particular favourite of his was Amsterdam. Or Norway. Both of which were lovely.

But what Jack lacks in life-experience, he more than makes up for in creative ingenuity. His Jake Tanner series is the birth child of a sinister and twisted mind, and a propensity to assume the worst will happen in even the most mediocre situation.

Finding himself pigeon-holed as a millennial, Jack decided to stick with the stereotype and do things his own way. After all, he felt entitled and he wanted to destroy industries.

Enter: writing.

The love of writing was rekindled in Jack’s life when he (briefly) entered the corporate world, and the passion snowballed from there. No more will the millennial writer find himself working 9-5, indulging in the complexities of business life, or wearing a M&S suit.

He will take the world by storm with his pen(keyboard) and his ability to entertain and enthral readers.

Why not join him (and his future dog)?
