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.
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.

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!
Robert Thornhill is above all other authors. he has done something fresh, new, intelligent and amazing with his books. Great mysteries and great characters. You will thoroughly enjoy this series!! And George Kuch is a exact match for narrating the whole series, he brings the characters from the pages to life..
Wow, again wow. I am a fan of Robert Thornhill and it is no surprise that I thought this was a good book as I have liked everyone I have listened to. But this time the book not only was a great read but I was living some of the story at the same time as listening to it. My husband had kidney stones and then kidney surgery spending almost a week in the hospital. Here I am listening to this very book not knowing when I started it what the story line was going to be.
Very well written and very real. I LOVED when fictional Walt meets the author so fun and wow!
George Kuch once again does a great job with the narration. He is truly the voice of Walt.
Thank you Robert for giving me the chance to escape my life for a few hours. If you have never read or listened to Lady Justice series you really must.
mystery, humor, law-enforcement, private-investigators, suspense-------
The murder investigation and also the discovery of a terrorist plot are interwoven with the experience of cardiac hospitalization by our number one retiree. As a retired RN, and also a member of the zipper club I was very pleased with the characters reactions, but disturbed by the repetitive remarks about poor hospital security. I particularly enjoyed the way that the gang one upped the feds in the plot by the terrorists. Good suspense in a story packed with humor!
As always, George Kuch was super as narrator!
Walt is back at it! this time it's all about the heart. I love how he seems to "luck" into things and the funny way that things seem to come along all the while being serious too. It definitely brings to light how hard a nurses job is and the caring that they do have for their patients. My absolute favorite part of the book though are the two ladies with the crochet hooks! I laughed out loud!!!

The motley crew of Walt Williams saves the day again! Robert Thornhill evokes so many emotions throughout the book: sadness, joy, empathy.
Loved how Walt meets Robert at a festival! How's the heart Robert?
George Kuch is great again!

This book has a topic close to me. I am a retired RN, and had open heart surgery, and this book goes into what you and your family might be feeling. A must read. This one is my favorite. I received this audio book for free at my request and voluntarily reviewed.
I am voluntarily writing this review in exchange for a free copy. I have loved this series since book 1. Now that Walt is a PI and the series is changing it’s a little harder for me because there are too many story lines happening. I’ve never been one to watch movies with multiple story lines and I prefer my books the same way. The actual story line for this book didn’t occur till further to the end. It was a little disappointing. I really loved how Walt actually meets the Author Robert Thornhill in this book. It was pretty impressive how they put their minds together to get the terroist case solved. I’m not much on books, movies, or shows that encases terrorism. I still love the characters in these stories but I really missed the active presence of Ox, Walt’s ex police partner. I thought he’d still have a bigger role since they are still great and close friends.
I absolutely love these books as covers controversy issues with humor. I love the characters of Walt and his family (forever growing) and his extended family/friends. Author must have spent time in ICU as the procedures describe and how patients really feel. This book Walt has multiple surgeries and helps solve murders of people awaiting transplant. It was heart and gut wrenching especially when the 12 yr. old died but still had humor in the book. Keep them coming! Great narration as usual. I was given this audiobook by author and have voluntarily left this review. THANK YOU!!!!
