  • Dereliction of Duty Paperback Now Available!

    My debut novel, Dereliction of Duty, is finally available as a paperback. If you're a fan of thrillers, give it a look here: Dereliction of Duty.

    Here are a couple of reviews:

    Dereliction of Duty caught my attention from page one and never let up. This is my favorite genre and Mr. McKeown came through big time. I really enjoyed following the three different story lines as they evolved through the book, and I was pleased with how the different sub-plots came together at the end. I enjoyed this author's writing style as much as I enjoy Clancy or Ludlum books.
    Tom Clancy. Robert Ludlum. Frederick Forsyth. Names to reckon with. New author Daniel McKeown makes an attempt to put his name up there and doesn't fail. Dereliction of Duty moves swiftly and smoothly from the opening chase scenes to the explosive climax.

    There's a lot of traveling involved as the story unfolds. New York, New York state, Russia. Lots of Cold-War overtones and a palpable sense of menace. The reader quickly learns to be as ready for anything as the book's protagonist.

    You'll remember the acronym ATARIC. It means something like Advanced Technology and Research Into Computers but it stands for something completely different.

    You'll remember Troy Davies. You'll be with him for quite a while. Once you open the book, you'll not be getting away. It will envelop you, wrap you in a tarp, and take you away somewhere dangerous.

    And you'll remember McKeown when it comes time for him to publish again.

    Because he isn't at all derelict in the duty of producing a top-notch thriller.
