Summary

An artifact is stolen from the King Tut exhibit, setting in motion a string of bizarre murders that baffle the Kansas City Police Department.

A local author simultaneously releases his novel, The Curse of the Pharaohs, attributing the deaths to an ancient prophesy, "Death shall come on swift wings to him who disturbs the peace of the King."

Are the deaths the result of an ancient curse or modern day mayhem?

Follow the clues with Walt and decide for yourself!

Indiana Jones comes to Kansas City

I enjoyed this book and thought it was another excellent instalment to the Walt Williams series. Once again the author has you questioning right and wrong and has you chuckling in the next breath. In this book Walt and Ox are working two cases and I loved the unexpected twist the main case took. I didn't see that coming, good job they have such great friends, even if one or two are really bad at telling jokes. I liked the unusual case of the main story.
Walt and Ox are the first responders to a death at an apartment building. On arriving they discover it is a bit more complicated than just a death and Walt recognizes the man from an Egyptian exhibit that he had his friends had just attended, one that recently had a theft from. Coincidence? Walt doesn't think so. But could it really be a curse? As the bodies start to fall the dynamic due think not. At the same time the pair get loaned out to the drug squad to make a bust but when it proves to be an elderly couple Walt attends there court hearing, in the hopes that the jury will do the right thing. Things in the missing gems case takes an unexpected turn and the whole gang must rally together to get to the bottom of the curse before it claims another victim.
George Kuch is still a great choice for this series and I hope he keeps reading the books because nobody else will seem right as Walt Williams.

Bang, you're dead. An eye for an eye.

When a statue of Anubis is stolen from an exhibition of Egyptian artefacts, and the death toll rises, it begins to look as if the myth of the Pharaoh's curse might have some truth after all. And right in the middle of the happenings? Why, Walt and Ox, of course.

Another fun story, with a serious side, about the aging policemen, his friends and his partner, again ably interpreted by the excellent George Kuch who breathes life into all of the characters as he becomes Walt. Always a very good read.and recommended.

Justice Prevails!

This is my favorite book to date by Robert Thornhill! I have been fascinated with King Tut since I saw the real treasure displayed in Chicago in the 1970's. I also thought it was incredibly thought provoking how he brought up the issue of medical marijuana and how its legal in some states while not in others. The benefits of it for certain conditions versus the side effects of big pharmaceutical drugs. How both things were intwined into one awesome book was amazing. This book was so well done with its humor, suspense, mystery, current issues, and desire for lady justice to prevail. George Kuch continue to perform the characters with distinguishable voices and adds so much to how he says things. Other facets I love about this series of books is the consistency of characters, glimpses into previous books, the narration, and the laugh out loud humor. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I can't wait to listen to the next adventure of Walt. Ox, Judy, Mary, and crew.

Curse or greed?

The subject of medical marijuana was presented with a great pros and cons debate. I love how Thornhill presents controversial subjects and we must come to our own conclusions.

Felt at home with our usual cast of characters. They have become friends.

George Kuch IS Walt Williams!

Lady Justice and the Pharaoh’s Curse

Walt and Ox sure get themselves in a pickle in this book, but luckily they are able to think on their feet and get through it somewhat unscathed. I am loving this series!

Lady Justice and the Pharaoh’s Curse

Is it the curse surrounding King Tut’s stolen treasure, or just plain greed that sets the series of events in motion. Either way, Walt and his crew are in for an interesting adventure.

The Lady Justice series is one of my favorites... fantastic stories written by Robert Thornhill and narrated by George Kuch.

Another great book in the Lady Justice Series!

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. Another great book in the Lady Justice Series! I've not come across a book in this series that I didn't like. This one involved an ancient Egyptian curse. Only Walt and Ox could get mixed up in something like that. There were lots of twists and turns as well as an ending I never expected. Can't wait to see what's next for these two and the gang of misfits.

Excellent read!

law-enforcement, greed, suspense, mystery, myths-legends, murder, friendship, humor -----
Retired from real estate, Walt has been a police officer in St Louis for five years now partnered with his friend Ox. The traveling exhibit of King Tut's replicated grave goods is on display and one of their band of friends received enough free tickets for them all to go. Later things go downhill because a large artifact is stolen and the body count just keeps rising. There are other notable cases and even courtroom drama, not to mention someone setting them up for a murder rap! Twisty, thought provoking, and peppered with situational and verbal humor. Another good read!

another good one!

I really did like most of the story. There was one part that felt like it might get to kinda a lecture on the authors opinion, like the end of the last book, but it was wrapped up without feeling like an unsolicited "political" view lecture. I do enjoy the stories more when we're not told exactly who did it from the very beginning but not much was taken away from this story from that.

Another great story

What can I say I love this series! A interesting set of characters. A little bit of social issues current to today and a large does of comedy. I enjoyed this as a audiobook. George Kuch does a really wonderful job of bringing this series to life.
