Publisher's Summary

In the thrilling tradition of novels such as Fatherland and SS-GB comes a thriller set in an America under martial law. October 1962: Fidel Castro launches nuclear missiles at the US, striking Miami. The US retaliates and devastates the Soviet Union. November 1963: President John F. Kennedy and Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson are assassinated, simultaneously, by unknown snipers. As the US sinks into chaos, the Joint Chiefs of Staff override the Constitution, execute a bloodless coup, and declare martial law. Present day: New York City, after decades of martial law, suffers a perpetual gray cloud cover and rainfall, a remnant effect the nuclear strikes upon the world's weather. Troops and armored personnel carriers patrol the streets. A curfew remains in effect. All of this is just business as usual for Chief Inspector Isaac January of the US Army's Criminal Investigation Division of the New York Garrison. That is until he is called to a grisly murder scene that appears to be an exact copy of a scene that January saw 10 years before. Is it a copycat? Or something else? January suddenly finds himself the target of a conspiracy that marks him, his friends, and his loved ones for death and that will ultimately lead to the very pinnacle of power....


Audible Editor Reviews

"Ken Pakman's Domestic Tranquility is a chilling look at our world as it might have been. Isaac January is a protagonist that could give Lee Child's Jack Reacher a run for his money." (Joe Weber, the New York Times best-selling author of Defcon One)


What the Critics Say

"Domestic Tranquility gives you an action-packed thriller of a story, set against a compelling and darkly imagined background. It's a great read." (Ian Racey, author of A Traitor's Loyalty)
"The concept of a police-state America and the way Mr. Pakman fleshes it out is nothing short of brilliant.... As a first-generation Cuban-American, I found Mr. Pakman's alternate America...quite fascinating..." (R. J. Pineiro, author of Havoc, Spyware, and 01-01-00)
