Publisher's Summary

Walt and Maggie purchase a run-down mansion with plans to restore it to its former grandeur, not knowing that every previous owner had suffered a terrible tragedy due to a centuries-old curse.

During the restoration, the mysterious mansion reveals dark secrets that have been hidden away for decades. As restless spirits and hidden corpses are found, Walt and Maggie fear they may become the next victims of the evil curse.

Mystery Mansion

This is more of a light hearted mystery book. You know who did (multiple murders commited in the past over the years in one place).
What this book does it goes through them quickly and explains why and how with a little paranormal help.
I have not read one like this in a long while but I found that I liked it. It is quick and things move at a fast pace.
I believe that narrator suited this type of audiobook.

Seriously loved it!!! So good!

Wow! Amazing story. I wasn’t expecting much but man was I surprised! It starts off with snippets in the past which at first glance make no sense however everything comes to a head in the end. Expertly written and narrated. An older couple decides to purchase a massive black hole of a money pit house however Walt will do anything for his wife Maggie. What they discover within its walls is haunting and full of history, deceit, murder and in the end more than just the house is restored. Unbelievably good storytelling, how the author ties all of the events together is amazingly entertaining. My first by Robert Thornhill but certainly not the last! I received a free review copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you!

Somehow light and fun story about a haunted house

The ability to pull of the light mood and general good time while having the setting of a haunted house while still having some spookiness was a great thing to pull off. I haven't read or heard any of the other books in this series, and still followed along easily. This book has piqued my interest in the other books in the series and enjoyed the setup and the way we follow through with it. The ride was as much fun as any build-up of the central mystery or atmosphere. The narration was very good as well and thought his pacing and voices were spots on for this story. If you are looking for a light mystery that tries to entertain throughout this is a pretty good choice.

I LOVE this series!

Once again I am amazed by the talent of Robert Thornhills writing. This book takes on a little different story line but oh so wonderful. Walt and Maggie buy an once grand old mansion. The mansion is in great disrepair . Maggie sets out to get a history of each of the previous owners and Walt finds himself having to deal with their sometimes sordid pasts. George Kuch once again is the fantastic voice of Walt Williams. George is a wonderful narrator of this story line. I am so addicted to these stories.

An Interesting Mystery

This is an enjoyable listen if you enjoy mysteries with some suspense. First, Robert Thornhill, gives us the history of the mansion then Walt and Maggie's adventure begins. There's plenty of mystery, humor, and suspense for a really enjoyable listen. The narrator, George Kuch, does an excellent job with character voices. His voice is deep and he reads at a nice cadence. If you're a mystery lover then you will enjoy this story, it's fun and not dark. I will be looking into more of this series. If the rest of the books are anything like this one then it'll be worth my time to get them.

Lady Justice and the Mystery Mansion

Another great book in the Lady Justice series. I haven’t read all of them so know I missed a little bit of the main characters backgrounds, but that doesn’t affect the story at all. All the tragedies that happened in this mansion is unreal (in a good way). The curse of this mansion definitely dealt a lot of pain and suffering. I loved the way the ending came out as well. Very good book that is a must listen.

Fun romp through a haunted house.......

Lady Justice and the Mystery Mansion is part of a series, but I had no difficulty reading it as a standalone. I enjoyed it so much that I plan to check out the rest in the series. Although this book has the makings of a scary horror story, it is actually very light and enjoyable. The author neatly lays out the history of this haunted mansion so the reader learns all the tragedies played out within it's walls. Then, the protagonists, Walt, a retired cop and current PI, and his wife Maggie purchase this rundown mansion with the plan to restore it to it's former glory. As part of this process, Walt uncovers all of it's mysteries with the help of Maggie's research into the history of it's residents. The methods in which Walt deals with the challenges towards both resolving the haunted parts of the mansion and continuing with it's restoration are both ingenious and, at times, laughter inducing. By the end of the story, Walt and Maggie have achieved their original goal as well as laying to rest many ghosts of the past, and the reader has enjoyed their fascinating journey.

George Kuch does a great job with the narration. His voice is deep and sonorous, and he matched Walt's older, slighly cynical personality perfectly. Between Kuch's pleasing delivery and Thornhill's delightful story-telling, I found myself completed wrapped up in this short but potent tale.

I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for this honest review.

Very good mystery

I easily got into this story and it kept my interest all the way through. I couldn't predict what was going to happen and didn't find myself drifting away from the story and thinking about something else as I often do with other books I listen to. I believe this is my first book by this author and wouldn't hesitate to listen to another. George Kuch did a fine job with the narration too. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

What a great mystery, with a hint of spookiness

This was the first Robert Thornhill book I've listened to.. and looking forward to listening to more.

When an old deteriorated mansion is purchased, the new owners, Walt and Maggie, want to bring it back to old glory, but along the way, they uncover mystery, after mystery, and a few ghosts. This book was done with humour (Money Pit), as any old house would be, but unfortunately, every previous owner of this home, had a tragic ending.

good story and great narration.

Bought this house? What on earth were you thinking

A slightly different story this time in Robert Thornhill's excellent Lady Justice series, as related by retired realtor, turned elderly cop, now private eye, Walt Williams.

Walt and his wife, Maggie, buy an old and derelict mansion which Maggie wants to restore to it's formed magnificence. Not Walt's choice, but Maggie is so excited by it, he cannot resist despite his reservation that it will simply be a money pit. His friends all tend to agree. But as work progresses, and Maggie researches the house's history, he finds he has purchased more than he expected.

Written with all of the humour, anticipation, thoughtful ideas and the marvellous set of supporting characters present in previous Lady Justice books, this is another delightful tale. And again, George Kutch is Walt, himself, intimately relating the story, warts and all, to the listeners, as well as voicing the other characters. As ever, a great performance.

Another stand alone book, number 33 in the series.
A pleasure and a joy. Recommended.
