Publisher's Summary

Will American politics always be dominated by the two major political parties or are voters longing for an independent candidate to challenge the establishment?

Everyone thought that the slate of candidates for the presidential election had been set until Benjamin Franklin Foster came on the scene capturing the hearts of American voters with his message of change and reform. Powerful interests intent on preserving the status quo with their bought-and-paid-for politicians were determined to take Ben Foster out of the race. The Secret Service comes up with a quirky plan to protect the candidate and strike a blow for Lady Justice.

Will there be a new resident in the White House or will it be politics as usual? Join Walt on the campaign trail for an adventure full of mystery, intrigue, and laughs!

    "A very practical yet sometimes funny look at politics today"

    If you haven't started reading this series yet, you really need to get with the program. The author takes a very serious look at hot button topics that we face every day and makes them humorous. I absolutely love this series of books!!! I was provided a review copy of this book by the author and publisher or narrator

    "wow"

    I received this book free from the author and publisher, and this is my unbiased opion. I am a big fan of this series, it is goofy and and not your normal cop mysteries. I was honestly not sure about this book as I started listening. The book takes on our government's political issues. I agree with the candidate, Ben would make a great president. this book is now my favorite, I couldn't stop listening. I f you are looking for a off beat, entertaining story, with endearing characters it is a must listen. The only warning I have is if you like politics as usual, you probably won't like it. It takes a very practical look at our country's issues, and has some great ideas on how to solve them. I loved it.

    "The president??"

    Like all his other books this author hits the nail on the head with his stories. I realize this is just a story but he brings forth so many truths in America and our own government. Good ole Walt to the rescue again. I love him. I received this free for an honest review from the author or narrator.

    What did you like best about this story?


    The 9th installment of the lady Justice series , another controversial subject, Politics.
    Walt Williams is called on a top secret special mission , to protect an independent candidate for presidency, Ben Foster. He is not the average politician, he was once the Mayor of a Small city in Montana. What he stands for is not the typical political views, he stands for the people.

    Story
    "Crafted in America"

    Walt becomes a politician (kind of, sort of) in this somewhat predictable but very much fun Lady Justice installment. As is Robert Thornhill’s MO, he leaves us with much to think about. Take this combined passage for example.

    "The FDA can make laws and enforce them without congressional approval or debate .... (paraphrasing here) laws preventing people from saying that, for example, oranges prevent scurvy without the risk of being imprisoned." The big problem with this is that large corporations have a significant influence over the FDA – – ask Monsanto.

    The narration is right on target with the varying moods and tempos of the story.

    Regardless of political persuasion, I recommend this mainly first-person narrative for those looking a bit of light action and a pound of humor. You might accidentally learn a few things, too.

    "Oh Robert how could you leave me hanging?"
    What made the experience of listening to Lady Justice and the Candidate the most enjoyable?

    Everything! I LOVE this darned series. I cannot wait for each installment. Walt and all of the characters are like the best senior soap opera ever. Every book is a new adventure full of real world problems that make you think as well as entertain. Funny and true to life, this book deals with elections and the hard wired injustice they entail. There has rarely been such perfect narration of a book as this series has. All of the characters are brought to life by him. The story could have been culled from recent months. Fully entertaining and yet honest, I cannot stop listening straight through. I highly recommend this book and all of the series as well. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "I love this series!!!"

    Robert Thornhill is a fantastic writer. George Kuch adds so much to the books with his performance of Walt and the other characters. Each book is loaded with humor and makes one think. I love the fact that each book is a standalone listen, yet part of a series. This particular book focuses on politics in an unique manner, which I had never thought of previously. I really enjoyed this and highly recommend it. I think this particular book is my favorite of the series so far. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Walt and his gangs antics


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The closing sentences kinda made me mad to not know who won the election.


    Any additional comments?

    Another great hit in this series. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

    ""Here's to the crazy ones ...""

    Once again, George Kuch is Walt Williams, the 68 years old Kansas City cop, as he recounts his latest adventures in pursuit of Lady Justice. He's taken on all sorts of heavyweight oponents in the past but none come bigger than this one - the working system of the United States itself.
    With Mr.Kuch voicing the indefatigable Walt, and Robert Thornhill writing the script, this is another fabulous stand alone addition to the series. Not as many jokes this time but still the wonderful characters, great writing and some very interesting ideas about the state of the nation and what needs,to be put right. And someone, of force, is out to get him. Marvelous listening, highly recommended
