Perrrfect mix of humour and mystery

I loved this instalment to the Lady Justice series. I am an animal lover and owned a cat or should I say was owned by a cat so I especially enjoyed the introduction of Clarence the cat, it brought back a lot of memories as I found myself chuckling about the same antics my cat did, (how Walt don't know that cats and water don't mix I don't know, hehe.) The story also contained a number of other smaller cases as well, which were just as funny, you just got to love Bernice and John. How the series just better and better is a mystery to me but somehow it does and I would recommend this one.
Maggie is listing a house for a man who has just been murdered and the man's son wants Maggie and Walt to take care of it, including the dead man's cat. Rather than have the cat put down Maggie brakes the rules and takes the cat home. The problems is the cat is special and the killers believe the cat will lead them to some stolen money and set about kidnapping the cat. The cat is luckily rescued and finds a forever home with an ex CIA agent only to play a big part in taking down some terrorists.
George kuch is once again excellent at playing Walt and his friends.

Just for a few days.

Maggie and Walt Williams have themselves a cat, despite their own "no pets" ruling in the apartments. And Walt isn't happy about it, especially as Clarence seems to think that he should be in charge. But when Clarence unwittingly joins the team to help solve both a terrorist plot and murders, even Walt softens just a little.

As always with Robert Thornhill's excellent Lady Justice series, the book is funny, exciting, thought provoking - and interpreted by narrator, George Kuch, the perfect voice of Walt.
A series I cannot recommend too highly, and this one is a must for anyone who has ever shared their lives with a cat.

Lady Justice and the Cat

Once again Walt and his family and friends are pulled into a couple of adventures with comedic twists. He's taken on a realty outing with his wife where they become caretakers for Clarence the cat. This leads to cases that involve the Mexican drug cartel in Kansas then terrorists. Through all this Walt and friends show that age is not a deterrent to winning!
George Kuch is a fantastic narrator whose voice draws you into the story.
Fantastic audio and story.

Walt with a cat, HILARIOUS!!!

Each book in the series bring fun and adventure. I always laugh and enjoy all the little things that become incorporated into the main storyline. Ready to start the next.

Fun Murder/Treasure Mystery

I will say that this is geared to an adult crowd in the writing style and age of the main characters. I would rank it in the PG13 range due to bad language, violence, and minor sexual content. The story was a lot of fun and even though its part of a series, this book can be read on its own without any problems. the narrator did a great job and was fun to listen to. I also loved that I could listen to this easily in one day since it's only 3.5 hrs long.

A few mildly funny moments

Though short, the story could have benefitted from a more thorough editing job. Repetitive retellings and superfluous descriptions could have been cut and made the story tighter.

At the end of the day, the main character just wasn't likeable, and therefore it was hard to cheer for him. The story arc was also unimaginative and was far too predictable.

Cannot recommend.

Lady Justice and the Cat. Book 26

Walt gets mixed up with a terrorist group planning to set off a bomb. Who better to help Walt than the eye witness to the murder of a treasure hunter, Clarence the Cat gives the bad guys a run for their money and gives Walt a headache as he tries to find a good home for him. Hilarious book with fast paced action and tons of adventure.

George Kuch does another amazing job with his narration.

Great read

Lady Justice and the Cat is my twenty-sixth enjoyable read/listen from author Robert Thornhill. Another entertaining clean read, filled with puns, one-liners & references to books & songs including the narrator singing. Throughout the book I found myself smiling a lot & at times laughing out loud as I listened to this book with my wife & son who did the same. Each book in the series seems better than the last as Thornhill continues to up his game. Narrator George Kuch again adds greatly to the listening enjoyment with his wide variety of entertaining voices & inflections, Kuch IS Walt Williams! I’ll definitely be reading more from Thornhill! I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. Up next is Lady Justice and the Geriatric Gumshoe. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018)

Rubber Ducky?

Well this was certainly an interesting story. A cat fitted with an RF chip that uses a device called a rubber ducky to track. Hmm I found this pretty interesting. Walt and the gang did not disappoint as they worked their way through the crimes. This series is too funny at points. The author and narrator, again pair perfectly together to bring out the best of this story.

Loved it!

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. I'm a cat person so lots of stuff in this book rang very true. I won't spoil it for you but if you are a cat lover (or know someone who is) you'll find yourself chuckling at many of the things that happen in this book. There are also many non-cat related laughable moments as well.

About that Rubber Ducky device?

whispersync, cozy-mystery, private-investigators, pets, friendship, family, murder, humor

I love these books! This one is different in two ways; it is a bit shorter, and the excitement is sequential like a spine rather than twined together. A treasure hunting geologist implanted a device in his cat which helps track the man's murderers and later a member of Walt's loose knit family. Walt simply has never been a pet person, but wife Maggie liked the tomcat. Let the fun stuff begin!
If you choose audio, know that the narrations by George Kuch are very adaptable for speed.
