Summary

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.

"An apple a day keeps the scumbag at bay"

Any additional comments?

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.

Justice and Death

Any additional comments?

I received a free copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review.

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.

Lady Justuce

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

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

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.

A serious subject with a humorous twist

law-enforcement, humor, human-rights, series

This is a hard review for me to write without promoting the view that I share with so many experienced nurses and other care givers. The book is excellent, a wake up call to most people, suspenseful, and full of humor. The publisher's blurb gives you the basics, and there is no need for spoilers, but the issue of death with dignity when there is no real medical hope is handled with great sensitivity and clarity.
Please be sure to sign a Power of Attorney for Health Care and discuss your wishes with whoever you designate and any family you have.
Sign your organ donor card/driver license as well.
George Kuch is excellent!

Very Enjoyable!

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 short story!

Mr. Thornhill does it again by bringing to life a controversial subject in the fictional world of officer Walt Williams and highlighting both sides of the figurative coin. The cast address their own mortality concerns with their usual comedic humor that left me wanting more. The mystery of “Dr. Death” was interesting and well written. The narrator did a great job!

Tackles a complex subject

Note: I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

One thing I've noticed about this series is that the author often chooses complex subject matter to revolve the plot around. Since this series is more of a "cozy" mystery than something super intense or in depth, there isn't going to be the intense sort of examination of the subject matter that might take place in another type of book. But it still does a good job of approaching the material from both "sides" if you will, and believably demonstrating how most people would probably think about such a subject matter.

On the narration side of things, Kuch continues to deliver a decent performance of the characters in this world the author has created. And with the narration issues mentioned earlier seemingly dealt with, it makes the listening experience enjoyable. Recommended.

The author did a good job telling a story dealing with a tough subject. I'm glad he didn't get preachy. I really like the narrator. He is one of my favorites. I received this audiobook for free from the author for my unbiased review.

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.
