In the process, the amazing discovery of a previously unknown session by a deceased rock & roll idol stuns the music industry. What should be a joyous occasion soon turns dark as lives are threatened.

Book 2

What was one of the most memorable moments of Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes?

Thanks to Audiobookboom I was introduced to a new author. I really enjoyed this audiobook it was full of great one liners and had me laughing . I loved the characters and the fact that it shows that even though they were in the later years of their life they were able to make such a great contribution to their neighborhood

They call them "Dad jokes" where I come from!

law-enforcement, seniors, humor, mystery

The characters are a hoot, the mysteries are contemporary, the reminiscences are illuminating, and the situational humor is guaranteed to have any reader snorting their caffeine beverage! Walt retired from real estate and became a cop. His friends are also retirees of differing ages who wind up helping him. The publisher's blurb is helpful, but doesn't begin to prepare for situations like a bunch of people who never had reason to cook for themselves collaborating on a Thanksgiving dinner, or Walt's friends and lady friend helping him get dolled up in drag for an undercover assignment. With dry wit and humor, the interwoven tales add up to another great read!
George Kuch continues to be the perfect voice for Walt and friends!

Absolutely love Robert Thornhill

Would you consider the audio edition of Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes to be better than the print version?

N/A but I prefer audiobooks. You can do other things while listening. More productive.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Walt the cop is witty, and game for anything to fight crime.

Have you listened to any of George Kuch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

George is great for this character. I've listened to him on other Thornhill audiobooks.
He IS Walt.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I just hate it when the mob strong arms good folks and kills for greed.

Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes

Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes
: Robert Thornhill


I love the adventures of Walter, his friends, and C.R.A.P. The setting in Kansas City is perfect for the story. The listener gets to hear about real estate being snatched up by unscrupulous persons. There are lots of twists and turns and a few surprises. I think my favorite part was the Thanksgiving dinner preparation. I laughed so hard after having finished my own Thanksgiving dinner.The undercover assignments were the best thing since sliced bread!

I look forward to the next book in this series!!!!


The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.George Kuch adds great enthusiasm to the story.

Yes, charming characters, humor. George Kuch's great performance! Fun plot!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes?

I'm in my mid 60's and enjoy the Lady Justice series. I have over a dozen Kindle book editions. Lost Tapes is the second Audible editions that I've had the pleasure to listen to.Walt is involved with Life, I live vicariously through his adventures. Villians, love interest, some friends both eccentric and down to earth.

A very good read. I love this series!

Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes was my second enjoyable read/listen from author Robert Thornhill. Although I own over 20 of his books I’d never gotten around to reading one until I got Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P. in Audio. Since I own both the Kindle & Audible editions I was able to follow along with the narration. An enjoying & entertaining read. Filled with puns & one-liners, that was just plain fun. Narrator George Kuch 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).

Sit back and enjoy!

Humor, real life situations, holidays, multiple mysteries to solve, danger, and a small amount of romance add up to to a comical yet serious story that makes for an enjoyable and entertaining audiobook. I love the characters, older but spunky and vivacious! The narrator did an awesome job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene! I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Thornhill earns 5/5 Elvis Impersonators…Great Fun!

I am new to Robert Thornhill’s Walt Williams Mystery series, but after this book, albeit audio version narrated by the talented George Kuch, I am a big fan. It is delightful to read about sixty-five-year-old real estate retiree Walter ‘Walt' Williams, who chose not to engage in my idea of a quiet retirement and instead becomes a cop with the Kansas City P.D. and starts the City Retiree Action Patrol: comically known as C.R.A.P., an obvious indication of the edgy and delightful humor twists to follow in this series. Thornhill paints a well overdue image of a capable bunch of ‘post-retirement’ people soaked in mature humor. In this second book, Walt with support from police officers “Ox” and Vince along with the scrappy seniors—Maggie (girlfriend), Willie (former con man), Mary (apartment manager), and the Professor (purveyor of words of wisdom)—set out to uncover the details behind the terrorizing of a local neighborhood, but going undercover dancing at a gay club or the transvestite bar in female attire or portraying Elvis at an impersonator contest all puts Walt ill at ease. The story is even more engaging when during the investigation, a never-before-heard recording session from a deceased rock ’n’ roll idol is unearthed… I loved Thornhill’s story challenging my inner detective, humor that made me laugh out loud, and well-developed and amusing, sometimes quirky, characters. Engaging…Suspenseful… Humorous! I highly recommended this book or any book in the series in any form, anytime…eBook, print, and especially audio!

I was first introduced to Robert Thornhill’s work with the audio version, and the narration by voice artist George Kuch was very entertaining. His voice artistry enhanced the experience with tone and emotion that illustrated well the different personalities; something I am unable to duplicate reading to myself. Although much like a traditional reading supported by Thornhill's first-person perspective, Kuch's “Walt” is very entertaining, and the 'wise guy’ dialect, effeminate bar patrons, Elvis wannabes, and various females all worked well. Very entertaining!

Meh

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

I think I missed something in this book because it felt like it should be funny, but it felt flat. I particularly disliked the cooking chapters, which I just found quite boring.

I did really like the characters, who felt real. I also really like how each of these books can be read as standalone novels.

"Lady Justice loves her Rock 'n Roll."

Would you consider the audio edition of Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes to be better than the print version?

Not having read the print edition I am not really qualified to say. But that's not going to stop me:..
I cannot imagine any way of 'reading' this superbly written book better than that of listening to the 65 years old, newly enlisted cop, 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). And some of the situations are really laugh out loud funny, like Thanksgiving dinner, as well as all the dressing up for the undercover jobs he is asked to do.
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.

Any additional comments?

Walt is a great character and his friends are equally interesting, from his partner in the force to the retired con man, and the lady realtor to an unrelenting one liner comedian. The book is 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 it is, mixed into the personal life of Walt and his friends.
Oh, this is such an enjoyable book and I am greatly indebted to the right's holder for gifting it to me, via Audiobook Boom. Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes is the second book in the series but completely stand alone. However,. I'm pretty certain that anyone listening to this who hasn't heard book one (Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P.) will immediately put it on their must get list. It's a hoot, too.
Me? I'm going to start on book three, now.
