Publisher's Summary

Ben Singleton, a Marine veteran, had returned from a tour of duty in Afghanistan and was having difficulty adjusting to civilian life.

Fate, coincidence, or something else thrust him right into the heart of some of Walt and Ox's most difficult cases.

Our heroes find themselves knee-deep in trouble as they go undercover in a nursing home to smoke out practitioners of Medicaid fraud, meanwhile, Islamic terrorists with ties to the Taliban are plotting to attack one of Kansas City's most cherished institutions.

Join Walt and his band of senior sidekicks on another emotional roller coaster ride that will have you shedding tears of laughter one minute and sorrow the next.

Awesome Story!

Wow! This story really impacted my views regarding veterans and everything they sacrificed. Also, I thought it was great how the author brought to light the medicare fraud that happens all too often. Robert Thornhill has such a wonderful writing style in bringing several issues to light and writes such wonderful characters. I love Walt, Mary, Ox, Judy, and the rest of the crew. This book is both part of a series (Lady Justice) and a standalone listen. I enjoy how George Kuch performs each of the characters and delivers the humor. The concept of a 70 year old retiree being a active police officer is so much fun. This book has humor, heartache, friendship and so many other emotions. I requested this book and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by both the author and narrator.

Lady Justice and the Vet

Another fine story by Robert Thornhill. I love how these books have a self contained storyline in addition to building on the prior books. This book’s new topic was PTSD... it affect more than just veterans.

I absolutely love George Kuch’s narrations, but this book did have some audio quality problems. It was a bit distracting.

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

Great, enjoyable read!

Lady Justice and The Vet is my fifteenth 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 & the Organ Traders. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Another great book

I enjoyed the book and the storyline. The humor came out once again. Downside was the endless spots of dubbed in sentences here and there in a totally different sound. It was very distracting. Too bad - it really distracted from the message.

Can't get enough of this series!

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. I love this series and can't get enough of it! This book was a little more somber than other books in the series. As you can probably surmise from the title, it focuses on veterans, their injuries, difficulties re-entering civilian life, and their hardships receiving the help they need to cope with physical and mental wounds.

It also showed that veterans (of any age) can be useful in society even with life-altering injuries. Even though this book was somewhat somber in tone, it was still enjoyable. Walt and the gang had plenty of adventures.

This book also had audio problems with George Kuch's performance. I'm not sure what is going on but his voice would change tone in mid-sentence, would suddenly get louder and then resume normal volume level, and the character's voice would also change mid-sentence. It was very distracting. I hope whatever is causing these issues will be resolved. I love George Kuch's performances and hate that there are audio problems preventing his performances from being perfect.

Excellent read!

veterans, fraud, seniors, ptsd, guilt, relationships, law-enforcement, verbal-humor, situational-humor --------------
Our favorite senior citizen cop is back with hair raising adventures and some very timely socioeconomic issues. One is zeroing in on a form of Medicare fraud in residential setting that nearly obliterates Walt in a garbage truck. Walt is also burdened with PTSD from an incident in a previous book and that leads in to the unending horrors trapped in the minds of former military who were deployed at one time and a small peek into the psychotherapy implemented by the VA. As we follow along while Walt is targeted by a terror cell, we are also reminded of the problems caused by the government shutdown in 2013. There is angst, sadness, happy times, and laughter in this and others in the series.
I received a free audio copy at my request in exchange for an honest review.
George Kuch is terrific as narrator!

Another good one...

With all the books/tv shows/movies etc that going all political, this was a nice change of pace while still participating on the outskirts. Taking a look more closely to out Veterans and how they are taken care of after returning home is a very hard subject for a lot of people to understand and yet a very important aspect that should be addressed more openly. I really did like that this book brought it out in the open. Now, saying that, i did get a little bit bored between the work assignment that Walt and Ox were put on (which didn't last very long) and the rest of the story, but overall It was a great book!

Lady Justice does it again.

In this book Walt and the gang work with veterans, a subject close to my heart. A must if you have loved ones that served. I received this audio book for free at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

When this is over I'm getting a new partner.

This is the 15th stand alone book in Robert Thornhill's superb tales about Walt, a retired estate agent and property developer, turned cop in his senior years. Each book is a joy as Walt relates his experiences both inside and out of the police force, full of colourful characters, great crime stories, ideas to ponder, and lots, I do mean lots, of comedic action and laughter.
And, as always, George Kuch is the superb narrator, Walt, as he recounts his stories to us breathing life into every action.

In this book, Walt and his police partner, Ox, first meet Ben, a war veteran plagued with nightmare flashbacks, when he saves the pair from a home invasion shooter who had them holed up. Through him they become aware of the plight of many returnees as well as going undercover (again) to flush out fraudsters, celebrate Walt's 70th birthday, and are threatened by terrorists. And this is funny? Oh yes it is.
If you haven't get experienced this marvellous series, start now. No need to tell readers who have already met the Lady Justice of Thornhill's books - this one is highly recommended.
