NASHVILLE, TN – August 24, 2015 – Although the story takes place in the year of 2009, “The Contrary” (mystery/detective/thriller) by Nashville, Tennessee author, Thornton Cline is uncannily reminiscent of the intense anger witnessed in today’s voting electorate in 2015. Turn on the television news or surf the internet news services and you will see this anger unraveling before your eyes. 

In “The Contrary”, the protagonist, Louis Green is probably the most hated man in America.

“He is despised for his politically incorrect use of the English language, and for his extreme political views, He is despicable, opinionated and judgmental,” says author, Thornton Cline.

Some political experts believe that the 2016 presidential and senate races could be decided by the angry American voter. This faction of the electorate is deeply dissatisfied with the President and Congress for their actions or lack of actions.   This anger seems to be fueling strong support for “outside” candidates instead of support for the Washington establishment or incumbents.

In “The Contrary”, Louis Green becomes transformed into “America’s Hero” after facing a traumatic, life-threatening day in “hell”. 
“As he rises to stardom, Louis Green is stalked by a mysterious and dangerous psychopathic killer who severely disrupts his life,” says author Thornton Cline. 

“The Contrary” is the debut novel of award-winning, bestselling author, Thornton Cline and is the first of a trilogy published by the traditional independent publisher, Black Rose Writing.
