A 10-year-old boy has a bike accident and suffers a concussion. A neural connection is made that gives him the ability to have insight into future events. This young boy, with his new sixth sense, joins forces with Walt to exonerate a man who has been unjustly accused of murder, and thwart a plot to assassinate the president of the United States. Once again Lady Justice prevails, this time thanks to the unlikely collaboration of a young savant and a 74-year-old private investigator.

I love Robert Thornhill's books and his characters. I feel like I know each of them. George Kuch's narration is excellent and so easy to listen to. I listen while driving in my car or walking. I have listen to each of his books as they have come out on audio. Mr Thornhill has sent me promo codes to enjoy his books but would be worth every penny it costs. Thanks Robert.

The voice of Gwyn was very annoying. Hard to listen to with the whine. The other characters had good voices but hers was awful. Narrator needs to find a different voice for that character.

Good story line and I like how it ties in with the witch squad series.

Is there really a spirit world? And if there is, can those disembodied souls communicate with the living? Can departed love ones speak to family from beyond the grave? These are questions Walt must ponder when a bizarre series of paranormal events lead his friend, Mary, to a treasure hidden away for seventy years, and a family she never knew existed. Walt’s ultimate answer lies in the words of the Professor, “There are still many things beyond the comprehension of mortal man.” A light-hearted look at things that go ‘bump’ in the night.

Would you consider the audio edition of Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P. to be better than the print version?

Didn't read the book

What was one of the most memorable moments of Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P.?

It was all good. Enjoyed the fact that retired people were the ones who solved the crimes. Good cast of characters and the sayings were great.

What about George Kuch’s performance did you like?

Very easy to listen to and enjoyed his narration.

If you could rename Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P., what would you call it?

That is perfect.

Without fear, he writes letters to the massive corporations responsible for popular consumer products, demanding satisfaction and complaining about even the most minor of flaws. And miraculously, the corporations answer.

What would have made Wilber Winkle Has a Complaint better?

Maybe some more believeable complaints but I guess the nonsense ones were what made the book funny. It wasn't really a story.

What was most disappointing about John Homans’s story?

It wasn't a story it was just a narration of letters written.

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

no. I did enjoyed this narrator and I will look for his work in other books. Very soothing voice to listen to.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

a little disappointment it wasn't what I thought it would be but still got a few chuckles out of me I was hoping for more of a story line.
