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!

A fun game of cat & mouse

This series never ceases to amaze me with how well it fused current events into a thrilling and interesting mystery. This book focuses on women’s rights & a vigilante who begins to exact revenge on men who hurt or abuse women. At first the story seems clean cut, until you realize who she is & how tangled she is in and around Walt’s life. There’s a game of cat & mouse that leaves the reader on the edge of their seat wondering if the two will ever discover who the other person is.
In the end the real lesson of the book is shown to be unity, and how we live in such divisive times. If we spend more time coming together and less time tearing each other apart, this world will be a better place

another great story from Thornhill.

I always enjoy these books. The author has a great way of looking at our country. I always come away with something new to think about and a great story on top of it.

Spot on !

Another great read from Robert Thornhill
There was so much going on in this book. Mr Thornhill does a nice job of bringing you through the mystery while keeping his cards close to his chest, and keeping us invested in the story.. It's spot on with what is currently happening in out society today.. As book 30 in the series. But each can stand alone on its own !!

Highly recommended !!

Great Series

I absolutely love this series as they are thought provoking with humor. In this book it about a woman (Jan, a reporter) who takes revenge on males who harm women and children is known as the Black Widow. As usual Walt becomes involved in a couple of the cases. I love all of the characters especially Walt and his extended family. Great narration as usual. Highly recommend if you enjoy thought provoking mysteries with humor. Keep them coming! I was given this free audiobook by author and have voluntarily left this review. THANK YOU!!!!

Shades of Gray for Lady Justice

Robert Thornhill has done it again with another book that fits today’s headlines. This book has serious issues of vigilante justice and human trafficking woven into one gripping book. I love how the author incorporates humor into each book, but doesn’t take away from the story. This book is a standalone listen and part of a series. George Kuch does the narration justice by giving distinguished voices to the various characters. I love the characters of Walt, Maggie, Ox and the gang. Listening to the book is catching up on old friends. I love the Lady Justice series and found this one to be great. It is ironic that the Black Widow and I share a name.

An Itsy Bitsy Spider

Lady Justice and the Black Widow
By: Robert Thornhill

Here we are at episode 30 in the Lady Justice series. Walt is called into action again as men with dubious reputations are found, dead with a calling card from The Black Widow placed on their bodies. There is suspense as well as humor to go along with the current topic #metoo. Thornhill does a good job letting the listener choose for themselves which is more evil. I love this series! It makes me think and then laugh, or is it the other way around.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. George Kuch brings this entire series to life. Thanks for the entertainment!

Do not bother

Performance is awful and really ruins the story although that is also weak. It is not worth the price and I will ask for my money back!

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.
