Summary

Walt and Maggie purchase a run-down mansion with plans to restore it to its former grandeur, not knowing that every previous owner had suffered a terrible tragedy due to a centuries-old curse.

During the restoration, the mysterious mansion reveals dark secrets that have been hidden away for decades. As restless spirits and hidden corpses are found, Walt and Maggie fear they may become the next victims of the evil curse.

Mystery and intrigue, what more could you want?

I really enjoyed this book it was slightly different to the other books in the series but still just as fun and funny. The book starts with several deaths, murders or mishaps that all happen in one place and then along comes Walt and his band of Merry friends to solve the mysterious goings on. Each little case is nicely wrapped up before going onto the next. Walt's friends make little appearance but are not in the story as much as normal, although Jerry still manages to get in a few jokes and ditties
When Maggie falls in love with a fixer upper mansion Walt knows it is going to be a money pit but to keep his sweetie happy they buy it as an investment. But they had no clue what they were letting themselves in for. As Maggie works on making a scrap book of the mansions chequered past, Walt is left to deal with the workers who refuse to enter because of the strange goings on. Walt has no idea he will be playing a part in helping a ghost move on to the other side, getting an innocent man out of jail and finding stole money as well as getting an ancient curse removed.
George Kuch still manages to pull off an excellent example of why he is still the only voice for Walt Williams and his friends.

Bought this house? What on earth were you thinking

A slightly different story this time in Robert Thornhill's excellent Lady Justice series, as related by retired realtor, turned elderly cop, now private eye, Walt Williams.

Walt and his wife, Maggie, buy an old and derelict mansion which Maggie wants to restore to it's formed magnificence. Not Walt's choice, but Maggie is so excited by it, he cannot resist despite his reservation that it will simply be a money pit. His friends all tend to agree. But as work progresses, and Maggie researches the house's history, he finds he has purchased more than he expected.

Written with all of the humour, anticipation, thoughtful ideas and the marvellous set of supporting characters present in previous Lady Justice books, this is another delightful tale. And again, George Kutch is Walt, himself, intimately relating the story, warts and all, to the listeners, as well as voicing the other characters. As ever, a great performance.

Another stand alone book, number 33 in the series.
A pleasure and a joy. Recommended.

Boring

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

So.... the main character doesn't appear for the first 15% of the novel and the rest of it is literally an episode of Homes Under The Hammer with a bit of murder and ghosts along the way. If we're going by Homes Under The Hammer standard, Walt completely sucks at renovating his own home as many of the people on the programme have build and renovated homes for the cost of Walt's down-payment of $50,000. Everything felt super convenient because every problem that popped up, Walt would know somebody who could fix the problem. All in all, this didn't actually feel like a Walt Whitman novel and I found it to be a disappointment.

Great Quick Read

This was a really fun and quick read. With the book being only 3 hours it was perfect because, I didn't want to put it down and it was short enough that I didn't have to. I love the backdrop that was set and all the details he intertwined added more interest for me through the story.

GREAT READ, GREAT SERIES

Lady Justice and the Mystery Mansion is my thirty-third enjoyable read/listen from author Robert Thornhill. Another entertaining clean read, filled with puns & one-liners although shorter than most at less than three hours. Throughout the book I found myself smiling a lot & at times laughing out loud. 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 Good vs. Evil. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Touched my heart

Yes, the book touched my heart. Not something you'd read in a review about a mystery novel about a haunted mansion. I wasn't too fond of the narrator, I felt like there wasn't too much of a difference between character's voices, but the story line was great which was enough to keep me going . I really liked how the different fatal events were played out at the beginning of the book, introducing you to all the ghosts pasts but he only gave you just enough details to keep you wanting more. As the mansion is being renovated, each story begins to unfold more as clues are being discovered.

I was deeply moved by the baby's story, the bible verse included in there brought tears to my eyes. It was beautiful, perhaps because I'm a mother and lost a baby during pregnancy but I truly enjoyed every detail in the story.

Liked

I love history and this story appealed to me because I have always wanted a Victorian home. While the story itself kept me listening it felt like an awful lot was going on for one story. I received this book at no charge in exchange for an honest review. My only complaint really was they focused so much on the on going past issues (don’t want to spoil anything) that they never really talk about the refurbishment of the house. Kinda bummed about that.

Good quick read

Lady Justice and the Mystery Mansion (Lady Justice #33) was a good quick read by Robert Thornhill. Walkt and Maggie decided to purchase a run down mansion to restore. Unfortunately they found out that every previous owner suffered a terrible tragedy. They discover mysterious secrets during the renovation and fear they may be the next victims. They find a way to free the spirits and lift the curse. I loved listening to George Kuch's narration.

Lady Justice and the Mystery Mansion

Wally and Maggie are at it again. This time it deals with a beautiful house Maggie see and wants to refurbish. Once the house is theirs the work behind. Unfortunately, it seems every time one problem is finished two more take it's place. The first is a ghost who scares the workers. This leads Walt with Maggie's history investigation on the path to righting Weeknd over the course of 100+ years.
George Much if a fantastic narrator who embodies Walt and brings life to reach character.
Fantastic audio and story
