What do a Confederate soldier who died on the field of battle, a woman who was driven from her home by the ravages of the Civil War, and a man who perished in a turn-of-the-century asylum have in common? They all contact private investigator, Walt Williams. A bizarre series of events surrounding these paranormal visits culminate in the discovery of a terrorist plot to detonate bombs at a crowded festival. Once again, Lady Justice pairs Walt with forces from beyond the veil to solve mysteries hidden for decades and bring evil-doers to justice.

Love this series. Plenty of action, multiple situations, many beloved characters, humor, mysteries, and ghosts make for an entertaining and enjoyable short story. Plenty of laughs and sit on the edge of your seat suspense. Mr. Kuch did a great job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene.

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.

This story is probably my favorite so far in the series! A humorous mystery involving a treasure hunt with a touch of other worldly characters! I love it that many of the characters we know and love make appearances with Mary’s back story shared. Mr. Kuch did a fantastic job narrating as always!

Those fluffy white trails crisscrossing the sky - some say they are simply water vapor frozen into crystals. Others say they are deadly chemicals, some of which are for military defense, and others to control the weather and the world’s food supply. Are the chem-trails really part of a clandestine government conspiracy? Four people believe so and claim they have proof, but each of their lives comes to a tragic and mysterious end before they can offer their proof to the world.

Lady Justice in the Eye of the Storm really made me pause & think. The author did a good job with capturing recent racial events on both sides of the story and the sensationalism that some take advantage of for their own gain. The hurricane hardship of trapped tourists was well written and I feel really captured the author’s likely real life situation. The narrator did a good job as always.
