Publisher's Summary

Lady Justice has unwittingly entered a religious war. Who better to fight for her than Walt Williams?

Walt and his sweetie, Maggie, have just returned from a honeymoon that was packed with love, fun, mystery, and danger. Now it's time for them to adjust to living under the same roof - quite the challenge for a couple in their sixties, both of whom have never been married before! Suddenly Maggie's feeding Walt fiber - lots of fiber - taking up almost all the closet space, and even getting rid of Walt's favorite old recliner. But nothing could be better than having Maggie by his side when a great threat arises and Walt is, as usual, smack dab in the middle.

When Walt and his partner, Ox, are patrolling the Gay Pride Parade, a bomb goes off near them. They come out okay, but many are dead or seriously injured. Shortly after, the police squad learns the bombs are homemade by a group of religious fanatics calling themselves God's Avenging Angels. The Avenging Angels believe it's their job to rain fire and brimstone on Kansas City, their Sodom and Gomorrah. The next attacks could be anywhere in the metro, so all cops are needed to comb the city and find the perpetrators. Walt and Ox are on the case, which continues to be explosive.

In this compelling addition to the Lady Justice series, Robert Thornhill brings back all the characters listeners have come to love for more hilarity and higher stakes. You'll laugh, and you'll be on the edge of your seat until the big finish. Don't miss Lady Justice and the Avenging Angels!

Book 4

Which scene was your favorite?

This 4th installment in the Lady Justice series is another hit by the author. The hilarious antics of Walt Williams and friends as they fight the forces of evil is very entertaining. This story also addresses a very serious and dark topic, of a group of religious fanatics who believe they are doing God's will by killing the sinners in Kansas City. You will laugh at times, and you will be on the edge of your seat in suspense at others. I could not wait for book 5.

Another wonderful Lady Justice novel!

67 year old Walt Williams and his 67 year old bride Maggie are back to Kansas City from Hawaii where they were married and honeymooned for three weeks. With neither ever been married before they very quickly learn that some adjustments in their lifestyles will be required; well, Walt is the one who really must adjust. Although there is a mystery element in the last part of the novel, the first half is pure humor.

If you have not heard George Kuch narrate books before you have a treat ahead with this novel. He is really good!

This series is Fantastic!

fanatics, law-enforcement, kidnapping, friendship, relationships

Another excellent book in the Lady Justice series! Once again, the topics are more than contemporary, and there is referencing to late 20th century events. There is even a speculative tale from the days of the wild west. I continue to be impressed with the treatment of the problems and perils of law enforcement and their departments.
The publisher's blurb gives hints and there is no need for spoilers. Even if you've never read any of the other books in the series, I feel certain that you will appreciate this book and probably obtain some of the others.
George Kuch continues to be the perfect match for this series.

I love this series!

Lady Justice and The Avenging Angels was my fourth enjoyable read/listen from author Robert Thornhill. An enjoying & entertaining read, again filled with puns & one-liners, that was just plain fun. Narrator George Kuch is Walt & again adds greatly to the listening enjoyment with his wide variety of entertaining voices & inflections. I’ll definitely be reading more from Thornhill! (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Holy crap!

Lady Justice and the Avenging Angels story takes up where the previous book ends with Walt and crew returning home from Hawaii. There is no rest for the 67 year old officer as his bad luck of being in the right place and right time starts with a blast. The storyline is interesting and entertaining and the characters are funny, believable, & likable. The narrator did a fantastic job with speed of reading and appropriate tone inflections for each scene and unique voices for each character. I received a free copy of this audiobook and voluntarily left this review.

Still fun

Note: I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

I am SO late getting this review in. I actually listened to this months ago. Like all the other entries in the Lady Justice series, this is still a fun listen. The plot isn't too deep or convoluted, so it's more like a "cozy" mystery type of book. But the characters are interesting enough to want to keep coming back.

There are some repeated weaknesses throughout the series (highly convenient occurrences, etc.) but so far it hasn't been enough to turn me away from listening to further entries. Besides that, the only other complaint is the narrator. It's not that the narrator is bad - he's actually perfect for the part, imo. He does a good job on the voices and his comedic timing is good too. But the mouth and sinus noises are so prevalent that it's very, very distracting. Sometimes these things can be corrected with technique. But when that doesn't work there are software fixes available. I cannot understand why this hasn't been done yet. As someone familiar with such edits (since I'm a narrator myself), my fingers itch to run this thing through my DAW and fix those problems. Of course, it's also possible that being a narrator has made me super sensitive to such issues that would go unnoticed by most listeners.

At any rate, it's still a fun series and I would recommend it to fans of such a genre.

Like fine wine

Robert ThornhillI is so spot on with this series. Start at the beginning with the first novel and be prepared to realize that if you are lucky, live does not end at 65, just starts to get interesting. George Kuch fleshes out these characters nicely.I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Fun, but crude

Walt Williams returns from his honeymoon in Hawaii for another wild adventure, this time with a group of religious fundamentalist terrorists in Lady Justice and the Avenging Angels by Robert Thornhill. While adjusting to married life for the first time at the age of 67, Walt returns to his work as a police officer just as the Kansas City Gay Pride Parade is about to take place. Walt’s partner, Ox, named for his build, gets super hot under the strong sun and tries unsuccessfully to get something to drink from the tamale cart nearby and almost takes off his kevlar jacket to cool down. But then Walt and Ox get greeted by a pair of men they met in a previous case when they went undercover in a gay bar, and this saves their lives, as the tamale cart blows up, killing 70 and injuring over 300. Ox is saved by his vest, which incidentally also preserves the largest pieces of the bomb components, helping the bomb squad identify the way it worked.

Later that day a radio station gets an email with a biblical quote against men who lie with men, helping to identify the bomber as either a single fundamentalist or a church. When an 18-year-old young man gets blown up while manufacturing another bomb, they realize they are dealing with a group.

This book continues the fun of the series, though I was bothered by the excess amount of discussion of bodily functions in the book, which did get pretty crude at times.

George Kuch provides the narration for this book and continues to prove his storytelling skills with this. Most audiobook narrators appear to focus on the performance, but Kuch feels like he is sitting in the room with you and relating a story to you and you alone, which is the general style of the book.

Lady Justice and the Avenging Angels is a very funny read. The book has some creative characters and plot points and gave me pleasure in reading. I’ve given the previous books give stars, but this one gets only four because of the disgusting depictions of body parts and functions.

""Ready to go treasure hunting?"

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh, this is such an enjoyable book and it's hard to stop listening once started. But it is also sheer delight taken in smaller bites.
For anyone coming fresh to this treasure of a series, Walt is a retired realtor who turned cop in his mid sixties. He is a great character in every sense of the word and his friends are equally interesting, from Ox, his partner in the force, to the retired con man, not to mention his trouble making 80 something father plus a tennant who is an unrelenting one liner comedian. And now that Walt is back from his Hawaiian honeymoon and adapting to married life with Maggie, his long time love, the book is again so packed with verbal and visual jokes (told in low key, grumpy-old-man way), that it is surprising that there is time left for the crime story. But there is, and this time it is nasty:- facing down a fanatical murderous religious terrorist movement.

I cannot imagine any way of 'reading' this superbly written book better than that of listening to Walt William's personal reminiscences of his adventures both in and out of the police job, recounted through the voice of narrator, George Much. He brings Walt, with his grumbles, aches, pains and hilarious stories fully to life. It's like having a friend telling tales around the table (even if a few comments are a little too private to be heard in this way).
Throughout it all, Kuch's steady, warm voice is the perfect Walt. In conversations, each character is clearly distinguishable but that hardly seems to matter: it is being Walt with all of his ideosyncracies that is important. And Kuch is Walt.

Lady Justice and the Avenging Angels is the fourth book in the series but completely stand alone. Anyone who has already met Walt will know this book will be unmissable. If you haven't started the series yet, don't wait: get this book and look forward to an exciting, fun and thoughtful book peopled with characters you won't forget.
