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!

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.

Love Kansas City!

Where does Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P. rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I like the plot a lot!<br/>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!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Always fast moving and interesting

Which character – as performed by George Kuch – was your favorite?

Walter Williams, the main character is going to lead you through life as a cop.

Enjoyable story with a fresh idea

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.

Hooray for seniors

Would you listen to Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P. again? Why?

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

Funny as CRAP

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.

Such a refreshing cop book

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.

Author has a knack for taking the reader back 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.

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.

Awful puns, great story!

law-enforcement, retired, murder-investigation, murder, humor, bad-puns, puntastic

What a hoot! OK, so I fit into the general demographic, so I probably get more of the horrible jokes and puns more than some. And I have worked with law enforcement, so I think that I appreciate some of it a little more as well. The characters certainly are, and the plot is busy and twisty. But bottom line is that this is a really hilarious mystery in spite of the serial killer and other serious subjects. Some of the conversation is a little iffy, and I can easily see my older grandkids doing facepalms, but there is no gratuitous erotica. If this one is any indication, I certainly will get the rest of the series!
George Kuch is perfect as the voice of Walt and his friends, a little gravelly and well cadenced.
