Publisher's Summary

Suzanne Collins wrote The Hunger Games, Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World and George Orwell wrote 1984. All three novels were about dystopian societies of the future. In Lady Justice and the Watchers, Walt Williams sees the world we live in today through the eyes of a group who call themselves 'The Watchers'. Oscar Levant said that there's a fine line between genius and insanity. After listening to Lady Justice and the Watchers, you may realize as Walt did that there's also a very fine line separating the life of freedom that we enjoy today and the totalitarian society envisioned in these classic novels. Quietly and without fanfare, powerful interests have instituted policies that have eroded our privacy, health and individual freedoms. Is the dystopian society still a thing of the distant future or is it with us now disguised as a wolf in sheep's clothing?

    ""Why do they always seem to be shades of grey?""
    What does George Kuch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Once again, George Kuch returns a Walt Williams, the 68 years old cop determined to bring justice where he can. This ex realtor turned policeman is the first person story teller in all of the books so far, describing his day, friends, fears, angers, and generally rambling on about life in general, just like an old friend across the table telling stories over a good meal. And what stories he has to tell - often funny, always interesting and, as in this book, thought provoking also.<br/>And throughout it all, Kuch is Walt Williams, his pleasant slightly gruff voice mirroring the humour and emotions of the superb story teller. He gives to the elderly seeker after justice a solidity and reality which might not be so obvious from the printed page alone. To me, the pair are fused into the one full-of-life person.<br/><br/>This time​ the book focuses on the anomiilies in present society, both the up and downsides of growing technologies, with very personal encounters with both. Lady Justice might just have a hard time determining good and bad in the fog of grey.<br/>Another simply superb Audiobook from author, Robert Thornbill, entertaining us as he also makes us think. Like all of it's predecessors in this series, not to be missed.

    Any additional comments?

    In this audiobook the author introduces us to new characters as well as presents us with a lot of issues that we should all be aware of. In this latest installment in Mr. Thornhill brings back all of the characters we have come to love and care about throughout the series.

    "I love this series!"

    Lady Justice and the Watchers is a standalone book and part of a series. I have listened to several books in this series and I love them. This book has humor, action, unexpected twists and consistency of characters and narrator. I will never look at corn dogs in the same way. Parts of the book were so realistic while others not so much. It was also thought provoking. I really enjoy listening to this series, and have not had any problems listening to books out of order. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher.

    "Still watching"

    life lessons, humor, mystery, law enforcement, social issues

    Many laughs in a novel of frightening clarity delving into issues of today in the guise of a mystery involving law enforcement and a radical group who are watching government encroachment of the individual. There is lots of fun here, but do yourself a favor and evaluate the lesson, too.
    George Kuch continues to be perfect as the voice of Walt.

    "Light on Action, Heavy on Humor, Clear Messaging"

    I'm all onboard with the way Robert Thornton uses zany characters and a strong sense of civic duty to help his readers/listeners to see things in various lights. Lady Justice and the Watchers is riddled with a healthy amount of entertainment value-- it has a discernible plot, keeps it mysterious (as in who's watching whom), and maintains steady movement. If you like storytelling that is light on action, won't let you sleep on relevant societal/cultural/political facts, and is drenched with humor (even if it doesn't always garner an "lol"), then Watchers might be the one for you.

    The narrator does a skillful job keeping up with character, pace, and mood shifts.

    "Take me out to the...wait who is watching me?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this story along with all others in the Lady Justice series are by far some of the best mystery thriller action humor and everything else all neatly package into one fantastic book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    All the insight on the government ever watching eye after the patriot act went into affect. If you loved the last one with big pharma then you will love this one too as it continues on with that and then more.


    What about George Kuch’s performance did you like?

    There is no other man alive that can do Walt justice the way George does.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My reaction is always the same. Pure content and amazement how is able to entertain, educate and keeps things fresh for devoted and new readers.


    Any additional comments?

    Just like all others in this series the story stands on its own but in order to get a real value of all the characters you should do yourself a great service and read/listen to them all.<br/>"I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom."

    "I Would Tell You More, But, Someone is Watching"

    Robert Thornhill addresses one of the moral dilemmas of today with humor and light suspense. Thornhill brings Walt, Ox and their senior friends in to the good, the bad , and the ugly of government surveillance. Walt and Ox are involved in several life saving situations that where technology is the hero, but along the way they meet the Watchers. A duo who are rightly concerned about how far the Big Brother has gone and the potential consequences making everyone think about how far it could or already has gone. And once again get ready for an exciting Thornhill style ending.
    Well worth the listen

    Story
    "Lady Justice-A New Kinda Reality"

    Lady Justice and the Watchers was, in my opinion, a satirical look at our society as it really is today which was told to us by George Orwell in the past, sort of. These things have come to pass. I liked the part about the OnStar and also when they were shopping at the supermarker and had an enlightening moment when the cashier told him how his wife had gotten all the coupons. It's a little scary.

    Later on in the audiobook where he was changing words around was interesting. And kinda funny. Overall, this was, to say the least, entertaining and an eye-opener. this audiobook also reminded me of a trilogy written and published back in the 70's. I think this is the first book I've listened to by Robert Thornhill and I'll listen to more from him. I liked it.

    George Kuch's narration was really good. He was perfect for this book. I liked his voice inflections and his characterizations. I'll definitely listen to him again as well.

    "Thought provoking"

    I liked this book. Lady Justice and the Watchers takes a look at serious subject matters and give you pause.

    Things like ONStar, cell phones and credit cards, every day conveniences that can be used for good or by the consumer to make life a little better or easier, begs us to ask, who is getting all that information and what are they using it for? Those are a couple questions that were raised and have me thinking and pondering just a little bit more.

    I thought the voice that George Kuch used to portrayed the characters were well done, and fit the droll, laugh out loud humor in this book.

    I was voluntarily provided a copy of this audiobook by the author for my honest review.

    "Not just an entertaining book, also an informative read"

    Just when I think this series can't get any better it does. This is a well written book that can be read on its own, however I do recommend reading the series and it's entirety. I received this book at no cost to me from the author publisher or narrator
