Description:  In THE BIG SHEEP (Thomas Dunne Books; Hardback; ISBN 978-1-250-08844-4; June 28, 2016; $25.99), a genetically modified sheep and a gorgeous television star take center stage in a future dystopic Los Angeles. In 2039, Los Angeles is a baffling and bifurcated place. After the Collapse of 2028, a vast section of LA, the Disincorporated Zone, was disowned by the civil authorities, and became essentially a third world country within the borders of the city. Navigating the borders of DZ and LA is a tricky task, and there’s no one better suited than Erasmus Keane, an eccentric private investigator.

When a valuable genetically altered sheep mysteriously goes missing, Keane is the one they call. But while Keane and his more grounded partner, Blake Fowler, are on the trail of the lost sheep, they land an even bigger case. Beautiful television star Priya Mistry suspects that someone is trying to kill her, and she wants Keane to find out who. Pray vanishes, but soon returns, with no memory of having hired them. Keane and Fowler unravel the threads of the mystery, and it soon becomes clear that the two cases are linked – and both point to a sinister conspiracy involving the most powerful people in the city. Saving Priya and the sheep will take all of Keane’s wits and Fowler’s skills, but in the end, they may discover that some secrets are better left hidden.

About the author:

Robert Kroese honed his sense of irony growing up in Grand Rapids, Michigan. After barely graduating from Calvin College, he stumbled into software development. In 2009, he called upon his extensive knowledge of useless information and love of explosions to write his first novel, Mercury Falls. He has written three more books in the Mercury series and a humorous epic fantasy, Disenchanted. The Big Sheep is probably something like Kroese’s  eleventh book, but there’s no way to know for certain.
