The 2005 film, “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” starring Academy Award-winning actor, Robert Downey, Jr., based off the book “Bodies Are Where You Find Them” by author Brett Halliday was a hilarious take on the detective mystery genre. Author Robert Thornhill has taken a similar approach, penning his newest book, “Woves in Sheep’s Clothing” (published by Balboa Press), a dead-serious mystery, with hilarious twists sure to intrigue and entertain readers.

Walt Williams is a 68 year-old rookie cop. When a holistic physician is murdered, Walt becomes entangled in the high-powered world of corporate giants and corrupt politicians. The Police Department and the FBI join forces, and Walt goes undercover in a 'sting' operation. In doing so he becomes the target of a vicious assassin.

Walt is also a “rookie husband” and his new bride, Maggie, is determined to convert him from a life of comfort food and bachelor indulgence to a healthier lifestyle filled with organic food, vitamins, supplements and colon cleanses.

Thornill’s book has a very interesting origin also. “Dr. Edward Pearson, a holistic medical doctor in Florida, read one of my Lady Justice novels and commissioned me to write Wolves to use in his practice,” he explains. “The book contains several themes that Dr. Pearson wanted his patients to be aware of: the fact that there are natural alternatives to health care and that the collusion between big pharmaceutical companies and corrupt bureaucrats are corrupting our health care system.”
