Publisher's Summary

Walt goes under the knife for a heart operation and, while in the hospital, stumbles upon a series of mysterious deaths that are certainly not from natural causes.

He solves that mystery only to discover that people on the transplant waiting list are suddenly dying as well.

Then, information about a terrorist plot is found on a heart attack victim who has been rushed to the ICU.

Throughout it all, Walt discovers that there are many ways that a person may die of a broken heart.

Life is Precious

I think this book is very thought provoking in regards to how precious life is and yet it brings some humor to difficult moments. The brevity of our mortality is something one does try to put off. I am so glad that Walt is still around the Lady Justice series, and that the author, Robert Thornhill was able to bring real life into this story. Due to the serious nature of the story, there is less humor than some of the other Lady Justice books, but maybe that is because Walt and Ox are not full time partners anymore. George Kuch continues to bring so many emotions to the book, and I found myself laughing, crying, and laughing some more. The main message I took away from this book is Life is Precious and live it to the fullest.

Best one yet

I totally fell in love with this book, it has stories inside of stories, a very heartbroken touching read. As is the norm The author shows you his delightful humor that make you give belly laughs and has everyone looking at you like you are crazy. There are lots of twist and turns, some thrills and a few chills as the author spins a tale of danger, hurt, murder and broken hearts as well as giving you food of thought that will make you think I never thought of that. The characters as always are a delight to be around, giving a smile, warm heart and a light head, bring on a better mood that only this author can give you. There are times I get burned out trying to get this series finish. I have to take a break but when I come back I know I am going to have the time of my life as the author and narrator give me an exciting, thrilling ride that will leave me shocked, shaking my head and at times laughing my head off. I truly love both of these mean one who thinks up the stories and the other that brings it alive. There are a few twists you won't see coming, a few times you heart will stop for a beat and even a time when you think wow wasn't expecting that. Nothing like bring your own self into the book giving you a major shock and a big smile.

The narrator as always did an outstanding job bring the characters and book to life. There are no repeating of words, no volume change or background noise. He pausing when he needs to, gives emotion as the characters take you way, giving you an audio you don't want to put down or end. He character voices are a delight, giving the manly tones or the woman softness that really bring them to life. He makes you feel the danger, the shock and the ignores of the characters. I really have enjoyed him narrating this series and can't wait for the next one.

I hats of to both these man for giving me a laugh when I really needed one, for making me think about things I never have but mostly for letting me come into their world of make believe and taking me away when I really needed a break from life.

Lady Justice and the Broken Hearts

I just can’t get enough of this series... The cases are interesting and timely, the topics are thought provoking, and when things get really serious, there’s a bit of humor to lighten the mood. This book even has a cameo by one of my favorite authors!

Another winner written by Robert Thornhill and narrated by George Kuch.

Another great read

Lady Justice and the Broken Hearts is my twentieth 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. Since I own both the Audible & Kindle versions I was able to follow along while being read to. Up next is Lady Justice and the Conspiracy. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

So much packed into one book!

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. I didn't think you could pack so much into one book. Walt suffers two health-related scares (that have nothing to do with his work), captures two separate serial killers, and foils a terrorist attack! Oh, and if that wasn't enough, the author makes a cameo appearance LOL. I don't know how he comes up with this stuff but I hope he never runs out of ideas!

Heart beats or beat the hearts

I enjoyed this book. It took a while for the mystery side to show its self but there was a reason for the slow humours start and nobody can tell a tale quite like Walt Williams about hospital gowns or exams, well maybe Robert Thornhill. I liked the little cameo role for the author to play a role in Walt's adventures as himself, make sure you look out for it. Despite being laid up in bed after a serious operation Walt manages to solve a number of cases in his usual fun and haphazard style.
A retinue exam for kidney stones turns into something a lot more serious for Walt Williams when his heart shows signs of being in trouble. While in hospital recovering from the operation a number of patients die unexpectedly and a nurse worried about what is happening approaches Walt for help because not all of the deaths can be natural causes. With the help of his aging team he gets the the bottom of the mystery but in solving the case it triggers another case that needs to be solved and quickly as someone is killing patients that need new hearts. While at the hospital under cover a new twist and a case falls into Walt's lap that evolves him hunting down terrorist.
George Kuch does another excellent job as Walt Williams and the gang. He uses very distinctive voices for each character, making it easy to follow and enjoy.

No such thing as dignity...

Another glorious romp with author Robert Thornhill's elderly detective, as usual interpreted to perfection by his alter ego narrator, George Kuch.
Walt is now 71, has left the police force of Kansas City and opened his P.I.business with Maggie's brother, Kevin, and was on a job when pain struck. A kidney stone or two which had to be removed. But pre-operation investigation determined his heart was also in need of attention and he was booked in for open heart surgery.
This book covers not only the outcome of his post operative stay in hospital, but also reflects on a number of cases in which he and his various friends and family had been previously involved - so this is a good starting place for any reader who is new to this terrific series, funny, contemplative and filled with a host of colourful characters as well as great story line. Narrator George Kuch is the story teller, recounting Walt's thoughts and experiences intimately, just to the listener: a fine perfomance, as always. And Walt is Walt, somehow still managing to be at the heart of criminal activity even in the hospital. And deliciously, he meets an author, one Robert Thornhill.

I have to confess, I love this series. If you haven't already done so, try it, read it, see what you think.
