It would be a shame to lose this book

I enjoyed this book. It is book two in the series but you not need to have read the previous book to enjoy it, although it does help as it introduces Walt's friendships more thoroughly. I love the side characters especially the feisty Mary but all the characters are fun and will have you laughing at there antics, if not there jokes.
Patrolman Walt's friend is worried about an old girlfriend, who just happens to be a hooked and turns to his good friend for help. Investigating leads to a whole bigger problem and soon leads to mob connection, crooked cops,dead bodies and burnt buildings but it is all in a day's works for a policeman. What isn't in a day's work for most cops is going undercover in guy bar, dressing up as a woman or entering an Elvis impersonator competition but for 65 year old Walt anything goes, now if only cooking a thanksgiving turkey was so simple.
I like the narrator, he has a deep voice but can still pull of ladies voices with easy.

Meh

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I think I missed something in this book because it felt like it should be funny, but it felt flat. I particularly disliked the cooking chapters, which I just found quite boring.

I did really like the characters, who felt real. I also really like how each of these books can be read as standalone novels.

"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.

Book 2

What was one of the most memorable moments of Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes?

Thanks to Audiobookboom I was introduced to a new author. I really enjoyed this audiobook it was full of great one liners and had me laughing . I loved the characters and the fact that it shows that even though they were in the later years of their life they were able to make such a great contribution to their neighborhood

They call them "Dad jokes" where I come from!

law-enforcement, seniors, humor, mystery

The characters are a hoot, the mysteries are contemporary, the reminiscences are illuminating, and the situational humor is guaranteed to have any reader snorting their caffeine beverage! Walt retired from real estate and became a cop. His friends are also retirees of differing ages who wind up helping him. The publisher's blurb is helpful, but doesn't begin to prepare for situations like a bunch of people who never had reason to cook for themselves collaborating on a Thanksgiving dinner, or Walt's friends and lady friend helping him get dolled up in drag for an undercover assignment. With dry wit and humor, the interwoven tales add up to another great read!
George Kuch continues to be the perfect voice for Walt and friends!

Absolutely love Robert Thornhill

Would you consider the audio edition of Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes to be better than the print version?

N/A but I prefer audiobooks. You can do other things while listening. More productive.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Walt the cop is witty, and game for anything to fight crime.

Have you listened to any of George Kuch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

George is great for this character. I've listened to him on other Thornhill audiobooks.
He IS Walt.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I just hate it when the mob strong arms good folks and kills for greed.

Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes

Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes
: Robert Thornhill


I love the adventures of Walter, his friends, and C.R.A.P. The setting in Kansas City is perfect for the story. The listener gets to hear about real estate being snatched up by unscrupulous persons. There are lots of twists and turns and a few surprises. I think my favorite part was the Thanksgiving dinner preparation. I laughed so hard after having finished my own Thanksgiving dinner.The undercover assignments were the best thing since sliced bread!

I look forward to the next book in this series!!!!


The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.George Kuch adds great enthusiasm to the story.

Elvis??

I am so addicted to this series.
Walt is a disaster waiting to happen. If it can go wrong it will. But with his wife Maggie and all his friends they make the local police department sound incompetent.
The things this poor guy goes through in the name of justice is unbelievable.
Sure finding lost tapes of Elvis recordings is plausible but a 65 year old man dressed as Elvis and almost winning a contest. Unbelievable but hilarious.
The narrator George kuch did a fantastic job.
I received this free for an honest review from the author or narrator.

A Great Story

This is the second book in this series and was just as wonderful as book one. I love the concept and storyline as well as the characters. They are a riot! This is an easy to listen to book but if you're looking for serious, in-depth adventures then this book isn't for you. However, if you enjoy lighthearted, heartwarming, comical characters with a storyline that will sweep you away then you really should check out this book and others in this series. They are a joy to listen to. The narration was well done by George Kuch. He really brings the story to life for the listener and now I can't imagine anyone else being Walt! Totally worth your time!!
