Robert Thornhill Releases LADY JUSTICE AND THE CONSPIRACY TRIAL
by BWW News Desk - Feb 25, 2016

'In Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial,' author, Robert Thornhill, continues to ask the question, 'Are we being poisoned?' Investigative reporter, Jack Carson, has been murdered, but by whom? Police arrest mob boss Carmine Marchetti, but Walt is convinced that it was the work of government assassins, sent to silence the reporter before he could expose a clandestine program that for decades had been spraying deadly chemicals into the atmosphere for weather control and defense. Will justice prevail or will the government's dirty little secret remain hidden? Lee Ashford of Reader's Favorite writes, 'Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial by Robert Thornhill is another brilliantly-conceived mystery/comedy novel from the biographer of Walt Williams and creator of the Lady Justice series of contemplative tales. As fresh and timely as all the stories in this series, Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial tackles a troubling theory gaining traction just below the surface of public consciousness. 'Whether truth or fiction, the subject matter of this story - and its immediate predecessor, Lady Justice and the Conspiracy - will have readers surreptitiously peering beyond their curtains at the sky above. 'Once again we find the intrepid Walt Williams, senior citizen extraordinaire, right in the thick of a dangerous situation. As the body count rises, Walt understandably fears for his safety and the safety of his loved ones. This time he may have bitten off more than he can chew. 'Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial is a must-read for anyone who has ever wondered whether the government is perhaps not always forthcoming with 'the truth, the whole truth, and Nothing But the Truth' in its response to requests for information. 'Has our government conspired to foist a deadly top-secret program on our planet, or is this just an imaginative and witty tale? It will give you an adrenaline rush, regardless of what you ultimately believe. It will also give you something to think about. 'Robert Thornhill has a noteworthy talent for crafting compelling tales ripped from the headlines of our daily newspapers. Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial will grip you from beginning to end and may well color your dreams at night. 'Five stars and two thumbs up for Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial.' Robert began writing at the ripe old age of 66 and in six years has penned twenty-two novels in the Lady Justice series, the seven volume Rainbow Road series of chapter books for children, a cookbook and a mini-autobiography. During the past year, nine volumes in the Lady Justice series reached the #1 rank in the book's category on Amazon. (more...)

BWW Recap: Nacho Realizes He BETTER CALL SAUL
by Courtney Henley - Feb 17, 2015

Last week, we were glued to our television screens as we returned to Albuquerque to witness the birth of Saul Goodman as we know him. We're learning more and more about Walter White's crafty lawyer, including how he met Tuco, and consequently, how he morphed into the ethically confused man we know and love. At the end of last week's premiere episodes, good little Jimmy followed all the rules, as any good defense attorney should. But his moral ambiguities revealed themselves just enough to confuse not only viewers, but also Jimmy himself. Sure, he's responsible for those twins getting their legs broken, but at least he took them to the ER afterwards...right? Right? He's still a good, law-abiding guy...right? (more...)
