Publisher's Summary

Throughout history, men have used their wealth, power, and prestige to harass, manipulate, and coerce women to fulfill their sexual desires. Fed up with the "good ole boy" status quo, the Black Widow appears in Kansas City to avenge the women who have fallen victim to their male predators.

Fate throws PI Walt Williams into the path of the Widow as she exacts her vengeance on the guilty. Is the Black Widow a new cult heroine or a cold-blooded killer? Decide for yourself!

Lady Justice and the Black Widow

Sometimes there’s a fine line between right and wrong. When a serial killer, known as The Black Widow takes up residency in Kansas City, you know Walt will be caught in the web. But what if the victims crimes are worse than the Black Widow’s?

Robert Thornhill really makes you think about the ethics of the situation. It’s a very entertaining story with all the characters I’ve grown to know and love.

You can’t have Walt Williams without George Kuch. Fantastic narration!

Lady Justice and the Black Widow. Book 30

Walt works with the Black Widow to solve cases of women abducted and forced to become sex slaves. Does Walt have a problem working with the Black Widow? Yes and no. The Black Widow kills several men that prey on women, but in the end justice has been served, in most cases where the law failed. I for one rooted for the Black Widow all throughout the book!

George Kuch does an amazing job narrating, as always.

Great read, great series

Lady Justice and the Black Widow is my thirtieth enjoyable read/listen from author Robert Thornhill. Another entertaining clean read, filled with puns & one-liners. Throughout the book I found myself smiling a lot & at time laughing out loud. 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 and the Devil's Breath. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

This One will get You in its Web!

Robert Thornhill has put done himself with this one! Walt, our hero, has been thrust once again deeply into a very serious subject. One of the cool aspect of these 38 books, besides taking place in Kansas City, we are presented with positive and negative, we get to make up our minds who's guilty, yet are they really? Do the means justify the methods? Our Walt in every audible presentation is again outstanding, George Kuch!!! Another one of my favorite aspects is always a serious, current matter, with a well-defined dose of humor. This one is, in my honest opinion, BEST of books I've read or listened to. Buy, enjoy, review!

Hate the cover but loved the book

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. I'm terrified of spiders so I really don't like this cover. If I wasn't so fond of the series I might have skipped this one since I would have assumed that it was about real spiders. I'm so glad I didn't. While spiders are mentioned that is NOT what the book is about. Black Widows are also women that kill men which of course I knew. There wasn't anything in this book that caused me to shiver in terror. But, as usual, there were lots of hijinks and some funny moments. I can't wait for the next book!

Women taking a stand

One woman had decided she can no longer take men in power type positions taking advantage of women and them not being believed when they try to come forward. She decides to deliver her own kind of justice. No one will suspect her because of the job that she does. She begins to target such men and kills them. Who leaves a calling card? The black widow, of course. On multiple occasions the black widow crosses paths with Walt and the gang and they actually end up working together.

Another great book

Robert how do you do it. One book after another and all different and very informative and interesting. In this book gumshoe Walt Williams and his gang go after and kind of team up with a female serial killer known as the black widow. I that this was a great book with a little different take on Walt's personal ideals. Once again George Kuch does a wonderful job of narrating this book. I was gifted this book with the understanding that I would leave an honest review.

Thought-provoking and current with the times!

Robert Thornhill always hits the nail on the head in a masterful expose on sexual harrassment in his well-written tale.

George Kuch does a great job as usual bringing the characters to life.

#MeToo

situational-humor, verbal-humor, excop, serial-killer, seniors, #metoo

I would have preferred a roofie and a Bobbitt, but the Black Widow decided to fight the #metoo battle with murder. Tired of reading about the powerlessness of women who have been shamed as she had been, she travels to mete out dark justice. Walt is a PI and excop working with his brother in law and gets tangled in the moral dilemma. There is still plenty of situational and verbal humor, assistance from other retirees, and interesting plot twists. Very well done!
Lately I find myself playing the audio with George Kuch a little faster, but I think that's because I really want to get into the plot.

Trouble seems to find it's way to my door.

With each book so good in this Lady Justice series, it becomes ever more difficult to say something new. Walt Williams, now approaching his mid seventies is still fighting crime, but now with brother-in-law Kevin in their own private eye business since he left the police. It was supposed to be easy work, nothing dangerous, but trouble still seems to seek him out.

This time there's a killer in town until, that is, a second serial killer emerges, calling themselves the Black Widow, targeting abusers of women and children. And this killer has a lot of support from the public. As Walt remarks, not for the first time, not everything is black and white and sometimes the end justifies the means.

Well written with Walt at his reflective best, and recounted in first person by the narrator who truly becomes the elderly detective, George Kuch. Great characterisations, good stories, ideas to ponder and humour, too. Perfect pleasure.
