Mike, I'd suggest looking over some books in whatever field yours will be in. Maybe at a library that would have some US books in stock, or a bookseller with a "Colonial" section?

I've seen all sorts of creativity ranging from "nice and just a tad different" to "what were they thinking" on books these days. There are no hard and fast rules, and US readers in the mass market are often quite happy to find that someone has simply proofread the damned thing. Forget fact-checking, the few remaining publishers won't spend a dime on anything.

Assuming that's some kind of "thriller" or "mystery"...the full range of creativity is open to you, and the readers will enjoy it, unless you go outright overboard.
