A Fun Romp of Serious Introspection

This installment of The Lady Justice Series delivers another fun romp of introspection. It takes talent to combine a serious and controversial subject like euthanasia with humor, but Robert Thornhill pulls it off without a hitch. Again he blends entertainment and awareness like a smoothie that is both yummy AND healthy. Bravo.

With all due respect to most your characters being a humorous study in stereotypes, one or too characters seem a bit over-stereotyped, and I find myself momentarily removed from the story. IMHO, these perceived "glitches" detract from the story and blemish the intended humor.

George Kuch IS Walt. Enough said.

A serious subject with a humorous twist

law-enforcement, humor, human-rights, series

This is a hard review for me to write without promoting the view that I share with so many experienced nurses and other care givers. The book is excellent, a wake up call to most people, suspenseful, and full of humor. The publisher's blurb gives you the basics, and there is no need for spoilers, but the issue of death with dignity when there is no real medical hope is handled with great sensitivity and clarity.
Please be sure to sign a Power of Attorney for Health Care and discuss your wishes with whoever you designate and any family you have.

George Kuch is excellent!

Very Enjoyable!

Both the narrator and author are very talented. This is the second book that I have listened to and I loved it! I love the subtle humor in the stories. Although this book is part of a series it is also a standalone. Part of the book brings back some nostalgic memories and part of it is very thought provoking. I look forward to listening more on this series. I was voluntarily provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher, and/or narrator.

Gripping cozy mystery

I received a free copy of this audio book at my own request and voluntarily left this honest review.
The narrator's style is perfect for this story.
The plot is a simple one but keeps you listening.
The more you read/listen the more the characters grow. I've listened to quite a few of them and can highly recommend them.
Pick one any one and you won't be disappointed.

Totally love it

It is always a pleasure to listen to Mr. Thornhill’s books, it is so much fun to see what Walt and his friends get into. Mr. Thornhill knows how to deliver a highly entertaining story filled with near death, humor, danger, a touch of clean romance, there are always moments that you hold your breath, others where you heart skips a beat, I love the humor that fills the book but he gets right down to the heart of the matter, there are times I say oh my and other times where I laugh out loud and everyone in my office thinks I have lost it. No matter what the topic is it is always thrilling, exciting, adventurous. I am always left with a smile on my face and can’t wait to start the next one. You are never lost you always know a touch of what happens in the previous stories, so it doesn’t matter how you read them you always know who is what and what is going on. I highly recommend starting with book one and go from there. I promise you will be entertained

The narrator is truly amazing with his true emotions, his wonderful character voices, he really brings the characters to life, you always know who is talking and what they are feeling. His male voices are just as good as his female ones. There is no background noise, no volume changes, it is a very clear and clean audio. If any breaks were taken I could not tell. He knows how to bring the story to life making you see it in your mind, making you laugh with his dry humor that is right on the money. Walt is so easy to picture him rolling his eyes at the new things they want him to to. This narrator is fast becoming one of my favorites, he has a voice that is strong, but he is able to really touch on the emotional things to make you feel the effect the author wants you to feel.

I think there may come a time in our lives when we all might wish we had a doctor death. So many pro and cons who knows what is best. The author really is able to pull it off in a touching way that really pulls on your heartstrings.This is a story that is really for anyone, it is truly entertaining, and will keep you on your toes. I just love this author and narrator.

Loved the book!!

This book was a little different from some of the others in the series, and in a good way. It really made me ponder some of the things that happened and gave me a different perspective. Very thought provoking!!!

Lady Justice and Dr Death

Once again Walt á
is seen into cases that require thought and guts. The first is when a Dr who offers dignified death to those suffering from terminal illnesses but which in the law's eyes is illegal. Walt good undercover but as soon as he's accepted the song goes dead. The mishaps if his family and friends gives some comedic relief from the heaviness of the case. Then the case with the FBI to take down the companies who are using the law to further like their pockets leads to hear death for him. The only good thing, although it's still shocking, is meeting a half brother he didn't know about.
George Much personifies Walt and draws the listener into the story
Fantastic audio and story!

Lady justice or a moral dilemma

I enjoyed this book. It was very thought provoking, as well as funny. The characters are so much fun, I can't imagine another character (or author) making you think about moral dilemmas such as life and death one moment and then bust out laughing the next.
68 year old rookie cop Walt Williams has a big choice on his hands when he goes up against a doctor of death. It seems someone in his city is helping the dying to go out at a time of there choosing and with dignity, the only problem is assisted suicide is against the law and it is Walt and his partner Ox's job to catch him. When an undercover sting, where yes you guessed it Walt get to have fun dressing up, goes wrong things get complicated as it sparks a string of copy cat murders, where the victims are all elderly. It's a good job Walt knows some seniors up to the task of going under cover, He just has to make sure that it doesn't cost them there lives, as he has the unfortunate job of being all of there end of life advocates.
I like the narrator. Although I am not to sure of his singing voice but don't let that put you off it isn't much or for to long.

"An apple a day keeps the scumbag at bay"

Any additional comments?

A further delightful peek into the adventures and life musings of the sixty-eight years old cop, Walt Williams as performed by the excellent George Kuch. Mr.Kuch truly becomes the often put upon but very intrepid seeker after justice, whose undercover work this time sees him made up to appear as a terminal cancer patient in the quest to discover who is killing patients at the tail end of their lives. It might sound depressing, but with the marvellous sense of humour of the author, and therefore of Walt himself, and with the other gloriously characterised friends, it is never that - although it can be very thought provokng. As well as revisiting Walt's partner, Ox, his wife, Maggie and the other folks, this book also takes another look at the sad failure of Lady Justice in the big business pharmaceutical ploys of the previous book.

Completely standalone, each of the Lady Justice stories so far have been full of fun, wit and wisdom. George Kuch is Walt, the old timer but relatively new cop with all of his story telling brilliance mixed in with personal anecdotes, prejudices and humour. Another absolutely unmissable book.

Justice and Death

Any additional comments?

I received a free copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked this book. It portrayed the good aspects and bad aspects of euthanasia and allows you to contemplate your own opinions without forcing an opinion down your throat.
The way this novel was written, it allowed you to read this novel without having read the first five books in the Lady Justice series; having not read the previous novels, I understood the plot and the characters easily.
