In Lady Justice And Dr. Death, a series of terminally ill patients are found dead under circumstances that point to a new Dr. Death practicing euthanasia in the Kansas City area.
Walt and his entourage of scrappy seniors are dragged into the "right-to-die-with-dignity" controversy.
The mystery provides a light-hearted look at this explosive topic and death in general.
You may see end-of-life issues in a whole new light after listening to Lady Justice And Dr. Death.

A further delightful peek into the adventures and life musings of the sixty-eight years old cop, Walt Williams as performed by the excellent George Kuch. Mr.Kuch truly becomes the often put upon but very intrepid seeker after justice, whose undercover work this time sees him made up to appear as a terminal cancer patient in the quest to discover who is killing patients at the tail end of their lives. It might sound depressing, but with the marvellous sense of humour of the author, and therefore of Walt himself, and with the other gloriously characterised friends, it is never that - although it can be very thought provokng. As well as revisiting Walt's partner, Ox, his wife, Maggie and the other folks, this book also takes another look at the sad failure of Lady Justice in the big business pharmaceutical ploys of the previous book.
Completely standalone, each of the Lady Justice stories so far have been full of fun, wit and wisdom. George Kuch is Walt, the old timer but relatively new cop with all of his story telling brilliance mixed in with personal anecdotes, prejudices and humour. Another absolutely unmissable book.

I really liked this book. It portrayed the good aspects and bad aspects of euthanasia and allows you to contemplate your own opinions without forcing an opinion down your throat.
The way this novel was written, it allowed you to read this novel without having read the first five books in the Lady Justice series; having not read the previous novels, I understood the plot and the characters easily.
This is the 6th installment of the Lady Justice series. This time Walt and his partner Ox are looking into the case of assisted suicide. Soon they find it was not, that someone had assisted in his death. They are on the trail of a man who they are calling Dr. Death.Very interesting and entertaining series

Both the narrator and author are very talented. This is the second book that I have listened to and I loved it! I love the subtle humor in the stories. Although this book is part of a series it is also a standalone. Part of the book brings back some nostalgic memories and part of it is very thought provoking. I look forward to listening more on this series. I was voluntarily provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher, and/or narrator.
"Another great book in the series!"
Narrator, please learn how to pronounce the name of the Missouri town of Osceola, MO!
"Mercy or Murder?"
This time around, author Robert Thornhill tackles the subject of euthanasia. When a bereaved relative insists on an autopsy after her father's death, the St. Louis police discover that someone is assisting dying patients to end their suffering. Officers Walt and Ox are assigned the case, and we benefit from their research on both sides of the issue.
George Kuch does his usual fine job of portraying Walt and his friends.

"Dying with Dignity"
Once we get past a certain age this becomes more of a reality. I love the authors ability to put this subject in such a light that we can also laugh at it. I can't get enough of this author and narrator they are a match made in heaven.
I received this free of charge from the author or narrator free for an honest review.
"LADY JUSTICE ON DEATH AND DYING"
Once again Walter Williams and his band of seniors are thrust into a confrontation of good and evil dilemma. Sometimes humorous, Sometimes full of mystery and suspense. Walt and Oz try to find the right and wrong of assisted suicide. Walt always seem to find himself as the undercover lure. But now he needs to be almost dead. This is, as always, a great listen that allows you to think about issues without the emotional baggage.

"He's the one they call Dr. Feelgood"
I loved the fact that they keep tackling new topics and show both sides of the arguments. Last time it was big pharma, the time before that was with religious extremist and now it's euthanasia.
Any of the other Lady Justice books in the series. If you haven't read any of them do yourself a favor and pick any one of them up. You will be hooked.
In this book I loved Dr. Death and the finale.
He's the one they call Dr. Feelgood

What I love about the series is that you can jump in cold turkey anywhere in the series and get to know the characters and get quick glimpse explanations of past stories and characters so that you don't feel lost.
"Interesting Handling of a Sensitive Subject"
This was my first book in this series and I enjoyed the author's style and handling of a sensitive subject with humor and insight. Very thought provoking.

"A Fun Romp of Serious Introspection"
This installment of The Lady Justice Series delivers another fun romp of introspection. It takes talent to combine a serious and controversial subject like euthanasia with humor, but Robert Thornhill pulls it off without a hitch. Again he blends entertainment and awareness like a smoothie that is both yummy AND healthy. Bravo.
With all due respect to most your characters being a humorous study in stereotypes, one or too characters seem a bit over-stereotyped, and I find myself momentarily removed from the story. IMHO, these perceived "glitches" detract from the story and blemish the intended humor.
George Kuch IS Walt. Enough said.

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. I couldn't put this book down and listened to it all in one sitting. It was that good!
