About the Author ▸ Robert Thornton
Born in Birmingham, Alabama, USA, I have lived in the South, except for a stint in the U. S. Coast Guard, all of my life. I’m a retired physician who specialized in Family Medicine. For me reading and writing has been a lifelong love. Based on that love, I wrote a novel, entitled FATAL IMPACT. My second novel, THE PERIL PROTOCOL, tells the story of Hope Allerd, M.D., a brilliant physician who begins work under the mercurial Dr. Francis Peril. But, things go terribly wrong when a reporter shows up claiming Peril is the most horrific serial killer since Jack the Ripper. Check it out. I’m happy to announce that my third novel, LETHAL PARADISE, is now published. It continues the story of Hope Allerd. She becomes involved in a conflict with the dictator of a tropical paradise and risks everything to prevent the worse case of genocide since Adolf Hitler.
