After five years on the police force, a bullet in the kiester from a vengeful gangbanger convinces Walt that it’s time to turn in his badge.
Walt realizes once again that retirement just isn’t his cup of tea and, with a little urging from his brother-in-law, decides to become a private investigator.
For five years he had served the Lady Justice wearing a white robe and a blindfold and followed the rules, but he soon discovered that the P.I. business was leading him across the line into the dark side and a completely different set of rules.
When Walt comes face-to-face with the Lady Justice on the dark side, dressed in a tight skirt, fishnet stockings, and high heels, he is faced with decisions that will change the course of his life.
law-enforcement, private-investigators, surprises, humor -------
What goes around comes around, whether good or bad, justified or misguided. Walt retired from real estate at 65 and from the force at 70. Now he is second guessing his actions in a whole new way by becoming a private investigator. And he still has a big target on his back from a man who blames him for another's death. Sad to say, but this one is right out of current events yet very well done. And the situational and verbal humor continue to abound!
George Kuch continues to provide the sensitive voice of the characters.
Wow!! Excellent book! I finished it in 2 nights! I couldn't put it down. Fast paced international thriller that could happen today. Each person had their part to play precisely. Many twists and turns that will have you holding your breath!! I loved the book and highly recommend it.
Oh my! A hurricane what! As always Robert Thornhill has caught my attention and kept me entertained. I find when I read one of Roberts books I learn more about what ever topic he has chosen for the story line. In this book I got a first hand look at what a hurricane can be like. Well done again Robert. Also George Kuch does the most amazing job of narrating this series. He is the true voice of Walt Williams. Not to give anything away but the ending of this book leaves the reader wondering where this story will go next in Walt's life
This is more of what i loved about the Lady Justice books. Brings issues to light, give some information along the way of an engaging story, but leaves the opinions to a minimum. Loved seeing all the old characters back and i was surprised on the twist of Walt's life with the retiring, but love where it lead to!!! There is always good and bad and most of us struggle with how far is too far.
i was given this audiobook for an unbiased review
When I read the synopsis that Walt was retiring I got so worried that it would change the dynamic of the story. But don’t worry, it doesn’t!! There are still scenes with Ox & Walt together & Walt still gets to work with the PD, just in different ways.
This book was one of my favorites, because it showed the struggles of fighting between good & evil. Even when you think you’re doing the right thing, are you really? Also, the ending had a BIG twist I did not see coming. So well written, and so wonderfully narrated.
This story is just as good if not better than Walt being a cop. Walt wrestles with his conscious about having to do things not by the book since he is not bound to the same laws/procedures he was as a cop. Didn’t particularly care about Walt gaining a step sister. Kinda stretches reality a bit with this “coincendence” I feel. I look forward to more adventures with all the gang in the next phase of Walt’s new life after retirement. I voluntarily give this review in exchange for receiving this book free of charge.
Lady Justice on the Dark Side
By: Robert Thornhill
In this installment of Walt Williams and friends, we find our favorite senior citizen cop deciding it is time to retire from the C.R.A.P. force after he is shot. It doesn't take long for bordem to set in. Brother-in-law Kevin asks for help with some P.I. work, and soon Walt Williams Investigations is born. The listener is treated to by the book Walt wrestling with himself over choices in his new profession. There are social issues that are included as food for thought. Also, we can thank Mr. Thornhill for wit and humor along with some unexpected twists to keep the listener on their toes.
The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. George Kuch returns to bring Walt and the whole gang to life! Awesome job as always!
I love this author / narrator combination!!!

I have read the entire series, and I'm running out of new things to say. I love these books, I love the characters. There were a few new twists I didn't see coming. Absolutely worth a listen.
Another thought-provoking subject! How would we react?
I can see Robert Thornhill has created a venue so that he can approach many different subjects in future audiobooks. I can hardly wait to see where they lead!
George Kuch brings his characters to life like old friends.

Robert Thornhill continues to amaze me with his writing! I wish I was more eloquent in my review, and could do his book justice it deserves. Lady Justice on the Dark Side is one of the most thought provoking listens that I have heard. Having lived in the midwest for 45+ years, I found the imagery to be spot on. The battle Walt had with Lady Justice and her sister was tremendous with the speculation and inner turmoil. Both the white side and black side are two sides of the same coin. I thought this book did a wonderful job bringing to light many current issues as black lives matter, blue lives matter, and the need for family and friends. Like other books in this series, there is some wonderful humor with laugh out loud moments. George Kuch does such a wonderful performance with his various characters and their voices. I loved how Walt is able to keep his integrity in his new endeavor, his friendship with Ox is just as close and humorous, and the multiple stories happening within the book. I loved how everything was woven together without being obvious. The lyrics from songs and verses from the bible also fit perfect into this book. This is a standalone listen and continues part of the storyline from Lady Justice and the Eye of the Storm. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. This book had some twists in it that I never saw coming. I cannot wait for the next adventure or case that Walt tackles.
