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.

In fact, you may even be prompted to ask your grandpa what he's been up to lately!

This book is a quick and amusing read about the contributions that seniors can make. The book contains short chapters, each of which tells one of Walt's adventures. This book has humor for all ages not just seniors.
I received a free copy in exchange for my review
I like the plot a lot!
This book and this series takes place in Kansas City Mo. I like the accurate references to the city, since I am a lifelong resident. Refreshing content of a retired realtor who becomes a cop. Just when things are most serious, you may bust out laughing. Just the right mix of comedy!
Always fast moving and interesting
Walter Williams, the main character is going to lead you through life as a cop.
Tell us about yourself! : I am an author who loves to read, more like loves to listen, since I spend so much time writing.
I enjoyed listening to this story. The narrator did a good job of fitting himself to the character. The story, about a task force of older retired people solving crimes was a clever idea. The antics of the crimes were entertaining, a fresh idea. I would listen again.
Oh yeah! For the laughs Walt elicits in many and varied situations this book can't be beat. Situation after punny situation all I could do was smirk to myself, smile or laugh right out. Though the book touches on serious topics it keeps its humor throughout. Walt goes from 60+ to hero again and again. This book gives a testament to it ain't over til it's over. I highly recommend this book to everyone. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review
I can't remember the last time I haves this much. Oh and yelling coffin coffin, news paper news paper you morons. I knew the answers to the riddles before the cops did. Wonderfully written very funny. 5 thumbs up for this one. I received this free for an honest review from the author or narrator.
I throughly enjoyed listening to this book. I was laughing out loud throughout it and suggested my husband add it to his to be listened to books. I can see him burning through the whole series. The humor was fantastic, it was mostly oldie but moldy jokes but still funny. The storyline was good, the story not plausible but so well written you do not get hung up in the fact that they are not going to have a 65 year old new recruit on the police force, it fits and it works. The plot of the murders works well as well. Definitely a series I will look to when I need something different to listen to.

the world we grew up in, where a joke was a joke and women very likely were broads. The time flies while listening to the story go deeper and deeper. Walt has such great luck, I want him to buy me a Powerball ticket.
Because tales should be told.
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?
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.
No, but he does a good job of bringing the characters to life and switching between characters. He does women voices.
This is a funny book. It is mostly situational comedy and contains a lot of corny puns. It is entertaining and made me laugh.

Listening to audiobooks for few hours everyday since the start of 2017.
The premise is quite interesting. I felt like I was watching a '90s comedy sitcom. A fun, laid back and amusing ride. It did get intense at some places and that was good for the flavor. The narrator does a good job too.
