Publisher's Summary

An artifact is stolen from the King Tut exhibit, setting in motion a string of bizarre murders that baffle the Kansas City Police Department.

A local author simultaneously releases his novel, The Curse of the Pharaohs, attributing the deaths to an ancient prophesy, "Death shall come on swift wings to him who disturbs the peace of the King."

Are the deaths the result of an ancient curse or modern day mayhem?

Follow the clues with Walt and decide for yourself!

Justice Prevails!

This is my favorite book to date by Robert Thornhill! I have been fascinated with King Tut since I saw the real treasure displayed in Chicago in the 1970's. I also thought it was incredibly thought provoking how he brought up the issue of medical marijuana and how its legal in some states while not in others. The benefits of it for certain conditions versus the side effects of big pharmaceutical drugs. How both things were intwined into one awesome book was amazing. This book was so well done with its humor, suspense, mystery, current issues, and desire for lady justice to prevail. George Kuch continue to perform the characters with distinguishable voices and adds so much to how he says things. Other facets I love about this series of books is the consistency of characters, glimpses into previous books, the narration, and the laugh out loud humor. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I can't wait to listen to the next adventure of Walt. Ox, Judy, Mary, and crew.

Curse or greed?

The subject of medical marijuana was presented with a great pros and cons debate. I love how Thornhill presents controversial subjects and we must come to our own conclusions.

Felt at home with our usual cast of characters. They have become friends.

George Kuch IS Walt Williams!

Loved it

As is the normal for this author he goes outside the box bring you a delightful dry humor that keeps you laughing as well as a few hold your breath moments. Jerry normally has some bad jokes, some are cute but none really funny. Here is keeps you in stitches, I really laughed so hard at the circle joke, even told a few of my friends they thought it was out of this world. Walt is his normal dry self that really keeps you laughing alone with the other casts. Each story in this series is better than the other. I know when I pick up a audio from this author and narrator I am in for a heck of a good time. I just love how this author thinks outside the box giving you a very serious story but filled with humor and a few thrills and maybe even a chill as we take a walk on the wild side never knowing how what twisted story he will come up with next. I totally love his stories.

The narrator as always does a wonderful job. However this is the first time I have notice where he may have taken two breaks, one was a long pause and the other was repeating of a few words. Beside that he did an outstanding job. I love his character voices which fits the characters to a T, he gives true emotion to each of them, making you believe that it is truly happening before your eyes. There is only one repeat of words, one other place where I am sure a break was taken. There are no volume changes, no background noise just a very delightful clear audio that I truly loved.

Predictable

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

I'm not entirely sure if this book is advocating for the use of medical marijuana or if it's about a supposed curse put down around Egyptian mummies and items. I say this because the author takes out a section of the book to dedicate to a case that has nothing to do with the plot of the book to put a drugs bust and the subsequent trial (which takes about a week in the book, and months in real life). Truthfully, I zoned out at this point and didn't find much else of interest in the book.

Every time a character is introduced, there is a paragraph worth of exposition about the said character, linking them back to a previous book, which sounds more like an advert for the other books than anything actually helpful to the current book. Maybe this is because there appears to be a high proportion of people who do not read this series in order (I certainly haven't read them all in the correct chronological order) and as such. they have to be aware of who the characters are.

The plot itself (other than the random drug trial) was pretty predictable and the humour is quickly becoming more crass. I'm so tired of hearing about senior citizen's sex lives.

Lady Justice and the Pharaoh’s Curse

Walt and Ox sure get themselves in a pickle in this book, but luckily they are able to think on their feet and get through it somewhat unscathed. I am loving this series!

Lady Justice and the Pharaoh’s Curse

Is it the curse surrounding King Tut’s stolen treasure, or just plain greed that sets the series of events in motion. Either way, Walt and his crew are in for an interesting adventure.

The Lady Justice series is one of my favorites... fantastic stories written by Robert Thornhill and narrated by George Kuch.

Another great book in the Lady Justice Series!

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. Another great book in the Lady Justice Series! I've not come across a book in this series that I didn't like. This one involved an ancient Egyptian curse. Only Walt and Ox could get mixed up in something like that. There were lots of twists and turns as well as an ending I never expected. Can't wait to see what's next for these two and the gang of misfits.

Indiana Jones comes to Kansas City

I enjoyed this book and thought it was another excellent instalment to the Walt Williams series. Once again the author has you questioning right and wrong and has you chuckling in the next breath. In this book Walt and Ox are working two cases and I loved the unexpected twist the main case took. I didn't see that coming, good job they have such great friends, even if one or two are really bad at telling jokes. I liked the unusual case of the main story.
Walt and Ox are the first responders to a death at an apartment building. On arriving they discover it is a bit more complicated than just a death and Walt recognizes the man from an Egyptian exhibit that he had his friends had just attended, one that recently had a theft from. Coincidence? Walt doesn't think so. But could it really be a curse? As the bodies start to fall the dynamic due think not. At the same time the pair get loaned out to the drug squad to make a bust but when it proves to be an elderly couple Walt attends there court hearing, in the hopes that the jury will do the right thing. Things in the missing gems case takes an unexpected turn and the whole gang must rally together to get to the bottom of the curse before it claims another victim.
George Kuch is still a great choice for this series and I hope he keeps reading the books because nobody else will seem right as Walt Williams.

Bang, you're dead. An eye for an eye.

When a statue of Anubis is stolen from an exhibition of Egyptian artefacts, and the death toll rises, it begins to look as if the myth of the Pharaoh's curse might have some truth after all. And right in the middle of the happenings? Why, Walt and Ox, of course.

Another fun story, with a serious side, about the aging policemen, his friends and his partner, again ably interpreted by the excellent George Kuch who breathes life into all of the characters as he becomes Walt. Always a very good read.and recommended.
