Summary

Two septuagenarians win the lottery's biggest prize, dragging Walt and Ox into the most bizarre cases of their career.

The two "oldies" are determined to use their new-found wealth to re-create the past but instead propel Walt into the future where he must use drones and Star Trek phasers to balance the scales of justice.

When an extortion plot turns into kidnapping, Walt must boldly go where no cop has gone before to save himself and the millionaire.

Come along for another hilarious ride with the world's oldest and most lovable cop!

No amount of money can turn back the clock.

A superlative series. Walt Williams, the 69 years old cop, is his usual chatty self, telling tales about, and speculating on the wider consequences of, his exploits with the police as well as things said and done by friends. This time it's drugs, and personal liberty as well as meeting two old men who have just become super rich - and want to change the world.
As always, George Kuch's reading perfectly captures the character of Walt, warm, thoughtful, occasionally conflicted, very humerous, an excellent teller of tales. And his voicings of the other protagonists is also well performed.
A perfect pairing of story and narrator.
Excellent.

Everyone needs a super hero

I enjoyed this book. I like the fact that with each book the author gets you thinking about the subject even after the story has finished. In this book Walt and Ox tackles a number of cases with there usual good luck, charm and sometimes bluster all of it very entertaining.
Walt and Ox are traveling to outer space were no man has been before, we'll okay going undercover at a star trek convention when a number of valuable items are stolen from the tv series. Walt is in his element, Ox not so much. At the same time two men win the jackpot by picking the winning lottery tickets and have great big ideas of how to spend the money. Unfortunately this brings lots of con men to Kansas city in the hopes of parting them from the money. When one of the schemes goes wrong and Walt rescues one of the men he steps into motion something that might change his and his friends lives forever because everybody needs a super hero or a tv show.
George Kuch is once again a good choice for the reader as he does an excellent job with all the characters and sets the comic scenes up well with his delivery.

Lady Justice and winners

I absolutely love this series. Love all the characters especially Walt, Ox and extended family. This book is about Earl and Morty winning a huge lottery and their troubles following. It has serious moments and laugh out loud ones. Enjoyed the reference with Star Track and colon cleansing. Great narration as usual. Highly recommend this series who enjoy fun mysteries and need break from the dark. It shows your only old as you think. THANK YOU!!!!

Lady Justice and the Lottery. Book 14

A friend of Walt's and his friend win the lottery. Walt and Ox begin a new adventure in kidnapping for money. My favorite part is Walt using a Star Trek Phaser to catch a bad guy. This is a must in anyone's audible collection! Hilarious!

George Kuch uses voices that are believable and, in most cases, lovable.

Lady Justice and the Lottery

What would you do if you won the lottery? Two people in this book did and tried to do some really nice things with the money. Unfortunately when you win the lottery you have more dangers than you did before and in this book one of the possibilities is shown. Walt, Ox and the police are they to save the day once again and get put in a precarious position. Luckily this is Walt, so all ends well again. Loving this series so far!

Be careful what you wish for...

I just can’t get enough of Walt! He and Ox seem to have the knack for drawing the weird cases, but thanks to Walt’s life experiences, they somehow manage to muddle through.

This book makes references to prior cases, so while it’s not necessary, I’d recommend reading the books in order.

I’m thoroughly enjoying this series by Robert Thornhill. Keep ‘em coming!

George Kuch, once again, delivers a fantastic performance. I look forward to his next narration.

GREAT READ

Lady Justice and The Lottery is my fourteenth 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 Vet. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

So many zany stunts

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. Wow, Walt & Ox had so many zany stunts in this one! I laughed so hard I nearly wet myself.

I was slightly disappointed with George Kuch's performance. The volume and tone of voice kept changing. Almost as though it had been edited to add in extra bits. I don't know what was going on but it distracted me a bit from the story.

Walt is a Star Trek fan!!!

law-enforcement, seniors, situational-humor, verbal-humor, audiobook -------------------
The good guys of the SLPD are back! A different pair of retired guys win the lottery and engage a cousin who is a good lawyer to help them to avoid the pitfalls that other lottery winners have faced. There are a lot of other lessons to be learned, and Walt and Ox are right in the middle of the stickiest ones. We also learn a little about the use of drones, and even a little visit by Captain Kirk/William Shatner. Be ready for lots of laughs!
George Kuch is the voice of Walt and crew, and continues to do a fantastic job.

I love this series

Walt Williams is the McGuyver of the police department with some of his antics to save people or stop the criminals. He an Ox get themselves in trouble with their wives which is hilarious. I wasn't quite onboard with a show of Walt and Ox. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
