Publisher's Summary

Two radical groups have joined together for a common purpose - to kill the President of the United States, and they're looking for the perfect person to do the job.

Not a cold-blooded killer or a vicious assassin, but a model citizen, far removed from the watchful eyes of Homeland Security.

When the president comes to Kansas City, the unlikely trio of Walt, Willie, and Louie the Lip find themselves knee-deep in the planned assassination.

Join our heroes for another suspenseful mystery and lots of laughs!

Enjoy!

cozy-mystery, humor, law-enforcement, conspiracy, extremists

Two groups of hate extremists join together and victimize a man already victimized by circumstances. They teach him marksmanship and to take the fall for assassinating the President and give him the money his family needs. At this same time, there is more drama within our old friend Walt's group of friends. Add in the folks at Homeland Security, and both insanity and humor ensue. Another good think piece on the good, the bad, and the ugly.
George Kuch continues his stellar performance as narrator.

A delightful listen

I have really enjoyed this series, love the dry humor of Walt and all his friends who help keep him out of trouble. The author knows how to keep you entertained, with danger, thrills and humor. I love the authors twisted plots that always keeps me guessing.

The narrator does an outstanding job bring the characters to life, giving them true emotion that makes you laugh out loud. He male and female voices are right on the money, you always know who is talking and what they are feeling. There are no background noise, no repeating of words and no volume changes. He has really bought this series to life for me. He has a voice I could and have listened to almost all day.

It always amazes me how the author comes up with more things for Walt to get into, it is never a dole moment hanging out with these characters. I am always left with a smile on my face and can't wait to start the next one. The author and the narrator really blend well together giving you a story that really keeps you on your toes. It has been really a thrilling, exciting and fun ride.

Entertaining

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I found this book entertaining. I enjoyed reading the book from the joint POV, though it did take away the mystery of the book, which just left Walt's unique humour, which can be a little grating, if you aren't a fan of "guy humour" and various accounts of Walt's inability to use the toilet correctly.

Lady Justice and the Assassin. Book 13

Another fantastic book by Robert Thornhill.
Two groups who hate each other join forces to find someone desperate and in fire need of money to kill the President. Once again Walt is in the wrong place at the wrong time.

George Kuch narrates this audible with an excellence only a few narrators can accomplish.

Lady Justice and the Assassin

This book covers another controversial subject and yet is able to put a smile on your face with some outrageous actions. I love Walt and his friends and how even though they get themselves into serious situations, they are always able to end being on top.

Lady Justice and the Assassin

It’s just another day in the life of 69 year old cop, Walt Williams, and boy does he lead an interesting life. Before getting caught up in the attempted assassination of the President, Walt and the gang solve a few more lower profile cases.

I love the action, intrigue, and especially the humor that Robert Thornhill weaves into his stories. This is one of my favorite series.

I’m so glad that George Kuch has continued to narrate the Lady Justice books. I can’t imagine this setting being performed by anyone else.

Great read

Lady Justice and The Assassin is my thirteenth enjoyable read/listen from author Robert Thornhill. Another entertaining clean read, filled with puns & one-liners, as always dealing with current social topics. Each book in the series seems better than the last as Thornhill continues to up his game. Narrator George Kuch again adds greatly to the listening enjoyment with his wide variety of entertaining voices & inflections, Kuch IS Walt Williams! I’ll definitely be reading more from Thornhill! I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. Up next is Lady Justice & the Lottery. Since I own both the Kindle & Audible editions I was able to follow along while being read to. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Lady justice is back with guns blazing

I enjoyed this book. Walt and the gang never fail to bring a smile to your face with the antics they get up to. In this book there is two serious stories/subjects going on (gangs and poverty, which leads to anger violence and an assassination) and it is only at the end of story that they come together with a bang. Walt doesn't necessarily solve the case just happens to be in the right place at the right time.
Walt is being kept busy on a serial shaver, yep shaver someone in breaking in to homes to shave the family dog. Mean while behind the scenes to powerful groups have come together to recruit everyday man to take out the president. How? By giving a desperate man a chance to feed his family. Black gangs are also one the up rise and looking for new members. One of the members they target is related to a close friend if Wally's and when guns start blazing Wally turns to his good friend Walt to help get the boy out if trouble. But with Walt things never go smoothly and the gang ends up in even more hot water than before as all the cases come to a conclusion at the same time.
I like the narrator and once again he brings humour to his reading.

Grab a viper by the tail.

What might an honest, law-abiding man be tempted to do when, unable to get work, he finds his life fall to pieces - unable to pay his bills, house foreclosure looming and his family dependent on him to find a solution?
Walt Williams, the 69 years old cop in Kansas City, is back on the streets - and in disguise again! - with police partner, Ox, assorted friends and relatives and even his half brother, Mark Davenport, now in Homeland Security, reappears to help out Lady Jusice. Again interweaving different investigations with personal reflections and comedic characters, this episode in the glorious Lady Justice series has all of the best Robert Thornhill attributes. In an afterwads, Mr Thornhill reflects that although, in writing these books, his main reason is to bring a smile, he also hopes to raise awareness of other serious societal issues. He succeeds on both counts. Like Walt, too, the author still has faith in the goodness inside of everyone despite the sometime failure of our moral compass.

Walt's story, again a delicious recounting of his day to day adventures (and family interactions), is perfect!y presented by George Kuch, who does not so much perform as become the elderly cop. Another fine rendering of a great character in a simply superb series. I love these books.
Recommended.
