When corrupt politicians, the Italian mob, and a dirty cop collude to take over a Northeast neighborhood, Walt is recruited for the most bizarre undercover assignments of his new career. When conventional police work fails to solve the case, once again his band of scrappy seniors come to the rescue.

In the process, the amazing discovery of a previously unknown session by a deceased rock & roll idol stuns the music industry. What should be a joyous occasion soon turns dark as lives are threatened.

All of your favorite characters, along with two lovable additions, are back to help Walt in his quest for justice.

Their adventures and misadventures are sure to keep you captivated - and splitting your sides!

    ""Lady Justice loves her Rock 'n Roll.""
    Would you consider the audio edition of Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes to be better than the print version?

    Not having read the print edition I am not really qualified to say. But that's not going to stop me:..
    I cannot imagine any way of 'reading' this superbly written book better than that of listening to the 65 years old, newly enlisted cop, Walt William's personal reminiscences of his adventures both in and out of the police job, recounted through the voice of narrator, George Much. He brings Walt, with his grumbles, aches, pains and hilarious stories fully to life. It's like having a friend telling tales around the table (even if a few comments are a little too private to be heard in this way). And some of the situations are really laugh out loud funny, like Thanksgiving dinner, as well as all the dressing up for the undercover jobs he is asked to do.
    Throughout it all, Kuch's steady, warm voice is the perfect Walt. In conversations, each character is clearly distinguishable but that hardly seems to matter: it is being Walt with all of his ideosyncracies that is important.


    Any additional comments?

    Walt is a great character and his friends are equally interesting, from his partner in the force to the retired con man, and the lady realtor to an unrelenting one liner comedian. The book is so packed with verbal and visual jokes (told in low key, grumpy-old-man way), that it is surprising that there is time left for the crime story. But there it is, mixed into the personal life of Walt and his friends.
    Oh, this is such an enjoyable book and I am greatly indebted to the right's holder for gifting it to me, via Audiobook Boom. Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes is the second book in the series but completely stand alone. However,. I'm pretty certain that anyone listening to this who hasn't heard book one (Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P.) will immediately put it on their must get list. It's a hoot, too.
    Me? I'm going to start on book three, now.

    "Not as good as book 1."
    Would you ever listen to anything by Robert Thornhill again?

    Sure. I had loved the first book. But this second book turned out to be not as good. Maybe another one will be better.


    Would you be willing to try another one of George Kuch’s performances?

    I'm 50-50 on this. On one hand, he narrated the main character beautifully, but all other characters were voiced weirdly.


    Any additional comments?

    The first book in this series was really good and different. So, I had high expectations from this second book. But sad to say that I'm disappointed. The main premise of the investigation this time wasn't interesting enough for me and the jokes also fell flat. Most of them were groan-worthy. Dad-jokes at best.I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    "I love Lady Justice."

    This series is both funny and thought provoking. When most of the characters are over 65, it makes you think about the future and, as always, what you think about Lady Justice. I received this audiobook for free, but voluntarily reviewed it.

    Loved this book. The metaphors to candy bars, Elvis songs, I am an Elvis fan, and the Thanksgiving scene is too funny. Well done, Robert. These characters crack me up.

    "Fun, light weight police story"

    In line with the first in the series.
    Funny, fast paced and entertaining.
    It tells more than one story and the characters are fun.
    Don't expect intrigue or a surprise ending.
    The narrator is a good match for the main character.

    Story
    "Groan-worthy jokes & dead bodies!"

    Note: While this is Book 2 in the series, it works perfectly fine as a stand alone novel.

    Walt Williams was a retired senior real estate agent but he felt he still had more in him. So he joined the Kansas City police force as part of their senior citizens outreach program. Now he and his partner, Ox, traipse around the more colorful sections of town in this tale. The mafia wants certain real estate freed up and use nearly every dirty trick there is to get people to sell. Meanwhile, one of Walt’s friends uncovered a lost rock and roll treasure that needs to be kept under tight wraps for now.

    This was a fun light-hearted murder mystery. There’s lots of corny jokes and the plot is pretty straight forward. The characters are lovable in a good-will-always-win-out sort of way. I really liked how this book had so many seniors in it. Some still work. Some are retired. Several do volunteer duties. Walt’s girlfriend, Maggie, is still working as a realtor and that gives Walt a bit of an advantage as he looks into the unusual circumstances of some recent sales.

    Throughout this book, Walt plays dress up, going undercover more than once. The locations of interest to Walt and the police department include some lively bars that cater to the LGBTQ community. While there are plenty of jokes from both Walt and his fellow officers, they felt rather dated, like something an older uncle would say and the next generation would be slightly embarrassed for him.

    Speaking of the humor, there’s plenty of it in this book. Everything from a whoopee cushion to a stand-up comedian to one-line zingers to ribbing from fellow officers. Some of it was well timed and funny. Some of it was rather worn and just got a groan from me. Sometimes I felt like the author had a big book of jokes sitting beside him as he worked on this book and he felt obliged to put in at least 3 jokes per chapter.

    I did enjoy the main plot concerning the mafia moving in and forcing owners to sell their houses or businesses cheap. The story did a good job of showing the various ways the mafia went about getting their way. They did everything from polite requests to buy outright to dirty trickery to intimidation to torching a place. At first Walt is the only officer that is interested in checking this out but as things escalate, the force in general becomes committed to putting an end to it.

    The minor plot line, that dealing with the lost tapes of a rock and roll idol, didn’t really appeal to me. I just wasn’t into the R&R idol and therefore, this chunk of the book didn’t grab me. When the main plot line wrapped up, I still had about 1.5 hours of book to listen to! Well, that was mostly this second minor plot line and a big holiday celebration. They were cute but not nearly as interesting as the mafia.

    All in all, it was a fun, quaint little mystery. If you’re looking for something light and, perhaps, a bit predictable, then this would be a good book to check out. For me, it was so-so.

    I received a free copy of this book.

    The Narration: George Kuch did a good job. He had an unexpected range of voices and even did a decent job with the female voices. His voice really fits well with the variety of seniors. There were a few times where I heard a few mouth noises but they didn’t distract from the narration.

    "Similar to others in the series"

    Similar to others in the series, book two in the Lady Justice Series takes us on a not-stop ride with senior citizen and police officer Walt Wittman which is full of humor. Just like the others in the series its has an over reaching thread but it’s really feels like a bunch of short stories where Walt moves from one ridiculous issue to the next. If you like the others in the series you’ll like this one as well.

    What did you love best about Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes?

    Throwing Elvis in the mix of the many characters Walt had to play.


    What does George Kuch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love his accent and how he gives each character their own identity.
