Publisher's Summary

How old is too old to dream? Walt Williams always dreamed of being a hero. When retirement isn't all it's cracked up to be, Walt decides it's the perfect time to achieve his dream and give Lady Justice a helping hand. So he decides to become a cop! Follow Walt as he leaves the real-estate world and retirement to solve crime and bring perps to justice. It's a bumpy but often hilarious ride. Walt and Ox, his partner in the Kansas City police department, find very unorthodox ways of bringing criminals to justice. After all, Walt has to rely on his ability to outsmart the bad guys. And they have plenty of help from others in the senior set. In this action packed, laugh-out-loud tale, Walt and his band of scrappy seniors are faced with the terrifying challenge of taking out the Realtor Rapist and the huge job of bringing down the Russian mob. It's a job only the City Retiree Action Patrol can do, and they provide plenty of laughs along the way. I guarantee, after listening to Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P., you will come away with a new light-hearted perspective and respect for the triumphs and challenges of the senior set. In fact, you may even be prompted to ask your grandpa what he's been up to lately!

    Story
    "Senior Citizen Lit. (like Chick Lit but different)"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P. to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because you have George Kuch's excellent performance skills bringing the characters to life. Plus you can listen while doing household chores or driving. What could be better?


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was cute. This book does not take itself too seriously. Many of the characters are drawn from stereotypes, and it is not politically correct. If that offends you, this is not the right book for you. In the same way that chick lit. deals with women's daily struggles and brings to life their fantasies, this book contains the daily struggles and idealistic fantasies of the over 60 crowd. How else do you describe a senior citizen becoming a cop and taking down drug dealers, serial killers, and counterfeiters with his posse of elderly friends? The material naturally lends itself to situational humor.


    Have you listened to any of George Kuch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but he does a good job of bringing the characters to life and switching between characters. He does women voices.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This is a funny book. It is mostly situational comedy and contains a lot of corny puns. It is entertaining and made me laugh.


    Any additional comments?

    I received this book for free from the author, narrator, or publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    "A nice and cozy collection of small stories"

    I was expecting to read a full lenght novel but that's not what I got. Instead this is a collection of short stories and other even shorter sub stories packed together as a novel. The idea wasn't bad, and the writing is quite good, but I wasn't fully immersed in the story becuse just when I become interested it was already over and a new mystery was up... I finished and liked the book only because of good characterization and knowing this is a serie it sure makes you want to know more about everyday life of those excentric and a little too clever seniors.
    Anyway if I read other books of that serie, I will still be hoping for one big central plot, to accompany the reader from the start to the end of the novel, between one short event and the next.

    "Funny police stories"

    After a couple of bad 'free' books, this was a pleasant change.

    Packed with a few different police cases, this felt like good value for my time. More humor than suspense, but not silly.

    The story pas was fast and entertaining.I enjoyed the humor. I could ask for less 'mr. Winky' jokes.

    The narrator was good.

    "Good story"
    If you could sum up Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P. in three words, what would they be?

    funny, retired, police


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Walt is my favorite. He is fun, adventurous, funny. always keeps you on your toes with what he might do next


    What does George Kuch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    he brings the characters to life. Not sure if it adds a lot, but he was enjoyable to listen.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    mostly. near the end there seemed to be just a few added on assignments that felt like they were there just to prolong the story, although they were fun to listen to.

    "Fun listen"

    Note: I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    I've known about this book series for a while and even have some of the books in my Kindle collection, but I haven't yet taken the time to read them (generally because most of my "reading" is done through audiobooks). When I stumbled across the audiobook for the first entry, I decided to go ahead and take a listen. Overall, this is a solid story, but it's more like a series of separate cases/events in the life of the main character during his work as a civilian police guy. I thought the preface plot arc was going to last through the whole book but that particular case got tied up about halfway through. I assume the rest of the books are like this. The narrator did a decent job and represented the characters well enough. There was a bit of mouth noise/clicking going on though, which could sometimes get distracting, but not to the point of totally diminishing the story experience.

    "a great ride in Car 54 (Where are you?)"

    Lady Justice Takes A C.R.A.P. by Robert Thornhill

    What a ride. Anyone who is of an age that can remember the TV show “Car 54 Where are your” will love all the little gems of laughs spread out in the book. Readers of any generation will enjoy the out of the box thinking of a Sr. citizen age rookie cop who has to find of a way out of a situation that a long time officer would handle with a more ruff and in your face approach.
    I am looking forward to following the ongoing adventures of this series.

    "Fun"

    I have to say I laughed all the way through this book. It is rare to find a comedy mystery. The humor was guy humor but clean and fun really adding to the characters. I especially liked the wisdom of the professor, Chinese fortune cookie meets stand up comic. The narrator George Kuch did a wonderful job of bringing the story to life. Will be reading more in this series.
