Summary

For most people, a 50th class reunion is a time to party and renew old acquaintances, but Walt Williams isn't an ordinary guy - he's a cop, and trouble seems to follow him everywhere he goes.

Old flames, bullies, and a scorned classmate make Walt's reunion one to remember.

The Mexican drug cartel is recruiting young Latino girls as drug mules and the Kansas City Police have hit a brick wall until Walt is given a lead by an old classmate.

Even then, it takes three unlikely heroes from the Whispering Hills Retirement Village to help Walt and Ox end the cartel's reign of terror.

Join Walt in a class reunion filled with mystery, intrigue, jealousy, and a belly-full of laughs!

Party time for Walt

I enjoyed this plot, with two main stories running though the book it has enough going on that it had me hooked from the start I like the way that Walt and his partner don't always get it right straight away like super heros but with perseverance they get there in the end and get the bad guys. The author covers some serious subjects like bullying and drug trafficking but with his light touch you can't help enjoying the story and even laughing at a few antics.
Walt receives a letter inviting him to a 50th year class reunion, he would rather give it a miss but his new wife wants to know more about his history and talks him into going. Walt being Walt he can't say no to Maggie and everybody else it seems as he gets talked into putting on an Elvis show for the class, as well as decorating the hall and even being part of the cheerleading team. Of course it is not all parties and fun and Walt will have to rope in Ox to run a undercover sting on an old friend. At the same time Walt and Ox receive help from three elderly gentleman who are trying to take down a deadly drug cartel who have been using young and venerable girls to traffic the drugs for them before time runs out for them. Will secret notes and undercover stakes outs be enough to take down a ruthless cartel? Who wants to go quietly into the final good night?
I really like George as the narrator for this series with his gruff voice he never fails to entertain.

Batman and Robin meet the Three Amigos.

George Kuch is back as the voice of Robert Thornhill's elderly cop, Walt Williams (and everybody else, too). Another funny and exciting story as Walt, with partner Ox, investigate a drugs scam and theft from a gym in between other busy life events, including a reprise of the Elvis impersonation.

Filled with cranky old, yet feisty, characters, hilarious episodes, pearls of wisdom and crime cracking escapades as recounted by Walt himself, this is a really fun book. Mr.Kuch performs all with warmth and brings everyone even more alive, especially the 69 years old Kansas cop himself.

For anyone unfamiliar with this marvellous Lady Justice series, do yourself a favour and try one. No need to start at the beginning, although I would recommend it as it is a very funny introduction to characters who will appear later, but each book is completely stand alone. Easy on the ear and covering a wide range of emotions, especially humour, this book is highly recommended.

Great read!

mystery, seniors, law-enforcement, relationships, situational-humor, verbal-humor

The wheels of Lady Justice may grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly fine. There are entwined story paths, the law enforcement problem involving drug lords in the area and the upcoming fiftieth class reunion for our hero. They converge when three of Walt's former classmates have information they want him to have but it is not admissible in court, nor can the man who obtained it be known. Despite the serious subject matter (well, not the madness of preparing for the reunion) there is the customary hilarity and groaners. Another delightful book in the series!
I read my copies on audio, and give the print copies to our regional library as I thought it insane that a library system serving a population of 500,000 had not one listed. I know that when I have to wait for months to get a book I've reserved, I often head for an ebook to buy (or an audio).
George Kuch continues to be excellent as narrator.

Wow!! Best one yet..

I don't know what to say but WOW! I even took a morning off to finish it! This is Definately the best book I've read (and listened to)this year!! Thanks Robert Thornhill .. It is a book that I would give top honors without a narrator but George Kush REALLY made it come to life. He really is a suburb narrator.. Don't miss it.

They keep getting better and better!

I love this series of books! I find that each book gets better than the previous. Each story is a standalone listen, yet might have mention of something that took place in a previous story. (For example, the previous book was the cruise ship murders and this book mentioned that Walt and Ox were recently back from a cruise). When I started listening to this series I did not start with the first book and have not had any problems. I think the author is extremely witty and the narrator has the perfect delivery for this book (and series). This book was so funny in how things were said, I was laughing out loud. I found the story to be very entertaining, engrossing, and most of the characters were endearing. I also like the fact that the author has some great messages in the books as well. I cannot say which was my favorite scene in the book, as there were several that were so good. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I highly recommend this book! The story line is original and the characters are far from perfect, which makes it so good. I was given this review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Lady Justice and the Class Reunion. book 12

Yet another fantastic book by Robert Thornhill. I just realized that this series of books would make for a fantastic TV Series. I don't watch TV but can guarantee that if these books were made into movies, I would become a movie watcher!
Walt and Ox must solve drugs coming into the country before more women are murdered. Along with the drama and murders in this book you will have laugh out loud comedy.

George Kuch is amazing in his narration and perfect for this series

Lady Justice and the Class Reunion

Walt and the gang are at it again and I love how everything comes together. There are references to previous stories, but honestly you’re given everything you need to enjoy the story on its own.

Robert Thornhill has a great ability to tackle serious topics, drug trafficking, bullying, stalking, you name it... while keeping the story light and humorous. I’m entertained, but I’m also left pondering how these topics affect us all.

Keep it up with the fantastic narrations, George Kuch!

FUN READ

Lady Justice and The Class Reunion is my twelfth enjoyable read/listen from author Robert Thornhill. Another entertaining clean read, filled with puns & one-liners, as always dealing with current social topics. 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 & the Class Assassin. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Another great book

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. Another fast read that I couldn't put down. I stayed up way too late listening to this book. As is typical with all of the Lady Justice books, there was plenty of witty one-liners, comedy, and drama to keep you on the edge of your seat. However, this book Walt and Ox had more cases to solve than usual and this time they had help from some concerned senior citizens in addition to Walt's merry band of misfits. There was also a brief trip down memory lane when Walt reprised one of his undercover assignment personas. I keep thinking that Mr. Thornhill won't be able to top the book I just listened to and then I'm pleasantly surprised when he proves me wrong every time. This is one of my all-time favorite series and I can't wait to see what's next!
