Publisher's Summary

Suzanne Collins wrote The Hunger Games, Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World and George Orwell wrote 1984. All three novels were about dystopian societies of the future. In Lady Justice and the Watchers, Walt Williams sees the world we live in today through the eyes of a group who call themselves 'The Watchers'. Oscar Levant said that there's a fine line between genius and insanity. After listening to Lady Justice and the Watchers, you may realize as Walt did that there's also a very fine line separating the life of freedom that we enjoy today and the totalitarian society envisioned in these classic novels. Quietly and without fanfare, powerful interests have instituted policies that have eroded our privacy, health and individual freedoms. Is the dystopian society still a thing of the distant future or is it with us now disguised as a wolf in sheep's clothing?

Lady Justice and the Watchers

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I highly recommend this series

Any additional comments?

In this audiobook the author introduces us to new characters as well as presents us with a lot of issues that we should all be aware of. In this latest installment in Mr. Thornhill brings back all of the characters we have come to love and care about throughout the series.

Light on Action, Heavy on Humor, Clear Messaging

I'm all onboard with the way Robert Thornton uses zany characters and a strong sense of civic duty to help his readers/listeners to see things in various lights. Lady Justice and the Watchers is riddled with a healthy amount of entertainment value-- it has a discernible plot, keeps it mysterious (as in who's watching whom), and maintains steady movement. If you like storytelling that is light on action, won't let you sleep on relevant societal/cultural/political facts, and is drenched with humor (even if it doesn't always garner an "lol"), then Watchers might be the one for you.

The narrator does a skillful job keeping up with character, pace, and mood shifts.

I love this series!

Lady Justice and the Watchers is a standalone book and part of a series. I have listened to several books in this series and I love them. This book has humor, action, unexpected twists and consistency of characters and narrator. I will never look at corn dogs in the same way. Parts of the book were so realistic while others not so much. It was also thought provoking. I really enjoy listening to this series, and have not had any problems listening to books out of order. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher.

It really makes you think.

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. I loved this book but it was kind of scary all the things he wrote about and how easily they could actually happen. I wouldn't give up my technology for anything but the way he described terrorists and even the government using it against us is downright scary. I know this is fiction but sometimes life imitates art. So it's highly possible some of this stuff could be true someday (if not already). It really makes you think. How far are we willing to go for convenience vs. privacy or safety?

GREAT STORYLINE .... MAKE SURE TO READ

Would you listen to Lady Justice and the Watchers again? Why?

for the first time that I can remember, I will definitely listen to this one again. Covered so much info on 'big brother' and how we are falling into an 'Orwillian' life. <br/>! am assuming Mr Thornhill has done his research well before sharing all this knowledge with his readers. The entire story was super.

What other book might you compare Lady Justice and the Watchers to and why?

have not read anything lately that is comparable to this.

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

Yes. Another great performance.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

not sure

Any additional comments?

I received this audio book for free from the author, narrator or publisher and am freely offering my honest, unbiased opinion with this review.

Do not like the subject matter on this one

I tried three times to get past the &quot;Big brother is watching&quot; angle of this book. Even with the good humor it didn't work for me.
I still love the series and look forward to more books in the series making it to audio. If any one is not sure you want to this series check out the author's web site. Lots of extra info and some cute senior dancing.

Still watching

life lessons, humor, mystery, law enforcement, social issues

Many laughs in a novel of frightening clarity delving into issues of today in the guise of a mystery involving law enforcement and a radical group who are watching government encroachment of the individual. There is lots of fun here, but do yourself a favor and evaluate the lesson, too.
George Kuch continues to be perfect as the voice of Walt.

Take me out to the...wait who is watching me?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, this story along with all others in the Lady Justice series are by far some of the best mystery thriller action humor and everything else all neatly package into one fantastic book.

What did you like best about this story?

All the insight on the government ever watching eye after the patriot act went into affect. If you loved the last one with big pharma then you will love this one too as it continues on with that and then more.

What about George Kuch’s performance did you like?

There is no other man alive that can do Walt justice the way George does.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My reaction is always the same. Pure content and amazement how is able to entertain, educate and keeps things fresh for devoted and new readers.

Any additional comments?

Just like all others in this series the story stands on its own but in order to get a real value of all the characters you should do yourself a great service and read/listen to them all.<br/>"I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom."

I Would Tell You More, But, Someone is Watching

Robert Thornhill addresses one of the moral dilemmas of today with humor and light suspense. Thornhill brings Walt, Ox and their senior friends in to the good, the bad , and the ugly of government surveillance. Walt and Ox are involved in several life saving situations that where technology is the hero, but along the way they meet the Watchers. A duo who are rightly concerned about how far the Big Brother has gone and the potential consequences making everyone think about how far it could or already has gone. And once again get ready for an exciting Thornhill style ending.
Well worth the listen

"Why do they always seem to be shades of grey?"

What does George Kuch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Once again, George Kuch returns a Walt Williams, the 68 years old cop determined to bring justice where he can. This ex realtor turned policeman is the first person story teller in all of the books so far, describing his day, friends, fears, angers, and generally rambling on about life in general, just like an old friend across the table telling stories over a good meal. And what stories he has to tell - often funny, always interesting and, as in this book, thought provoking also.<br/>And throughout it all, Kuch is Walt Williams, his pleasant slightly gruff voice mirroring the humour and emotions of the superb story teller. He gives to the elderly seeker after justice a solidity and reality which might not be so obvious from the printed page alone. To me, the pair are fused into the one full-of-life person.<br/><br/>This time​ the book focuses on the anomiilies in present society, both the up and downsides of growing technologies, with very personal encounters with both. Lady Justice might just have a hard time determining good and bad in the fog of grey.<br/>Another simply superb Audiobook from author, Robert Thornbill, entertaining us as he also makes us think. Like all of it's predecessors in this series, not to be missed.
