    Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite

    “Lady Justice and the Cruise Ship Murders” by Robert Thornhill is Episode #11 of the 'Lady Justice series', an ongoing collection of comedy/mystery stories spawned in the creative mind of the author. In this story Walt, a Kansas City Police Department creator and member of Citizens Retired Action Patrol (C.R.A.P.), and his wife Maggie join Walt’s patrol partner Ox and his new bride Judy both of whom are also police officers, on an Alaskan Cruise intended to be Ox and Judy’s official honeymoon. The four friends greatly anticipated this opportunity to get away together for some peace and quiet, and enjoy an experience none had ever had before . . . a cruise. They did have an experience none of them had ever had before, but the cruise was merely a small part of it. Peace and quiet never entered the equation at all.

    The title of this story gives a great big clue about what to expect in this adventure. Somebody aboard ship murdered two people and tossed their bodies overboard. Much to their surprise, the people they murdered had just changed rooms with the people they intended to murder, so the perpetrators still had two people to kill. This story is laugh-out-loud funny in many places, while still being a somewhat serious murder mystery. In addition, much actual history of the Alaskan gold rush was woven into this tale, lending a great deal of historic accuracy to the entire story. Robert Thornhill has found and filled a niche in the world of fiction that quite obviously had not been discovered prior to the day his wife told him he should write a book. His talent for creating real people, serious crimes, and humorous situations in a cogent story is a national treasure. I heartily recommend this tale to everybody with a sense of humor who also enjoys a well-told tale.

    Nail Biting Mystery!!!

    This is the first time I've read a book by this author, Robert Thornhill, and I must say I will probably be reading more of his writing. This was a fun cozy mystery about four friends. Ox and Judy are off to Alaska on a honeymoon cruise and invite Walt and Maggie to tag along. Their vacation is anything but relaxing and all fun and games. First thing that happens they meet another couple on vacation, Amy and Mark Steward. From that point on their vacation plans are soon shipwrecked by the murder of two fellow passengers.

    The murders appear to be linked to a century-old legend involving a cache of gold stolen from a prospector and buried by two thieves. There were hair-raising attempts of someone trying to put an end to their lives.
    Their seven day cruise is spent hunting for the gold and eluding the modern day thieves intent on possessing it at any cost.

    Another nail-biting mystery that will have you on the edge of your seat one minute and then I found myself laughing out loud the next. I really enjoyed this book, and awarded it 4****
