law-enforcement, seniors, situational-humor, verbal-humor, ------------------- 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!

This was a very interesting book and fun to read. I was glad to have a more light hearted read because Walt can be quite interesting. He is an older cop that gets in the most unusual situations with Lady Justice. His friends, partner and colleagues are all quite interesting and always getting into the most trouble. Walt is always trying to uphold the law and get the bad guys put away. He is very well developed as a character and I enjoyed all the situations he got into.

Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite Lady Justice and the Lottery by Robert Thornhill is another exciting episode in Thornhill’s Lady Justice series. Once again, Maggie, Willy, Mary, and the Professor join forces with Walt to help two elderly gentlemen, Morty and Earl, who just won the largest lottery jackpot of all time. Overcome with grandiose plans to turn back the clock to “the good old days” with their new-found riches, the duo encounters trouble at every turn. After receiving a phone call from a distant and unknown relative, with a “ground floor” opportunity for investment, the two gentlemen begin to believe their attorney’s warnings. Then, while Morty is announcing his plans to build a new baseball park, Earl is kidnapped, along with Maggie. Due to Maggie’s quick thinking, Walt and Ox are able to rescue them. But then Earl gets caught up in another scam, requiring even more – and more dangerous – help from Walt. Lady Justice and the Lottery is a fun read, once again showcasing the talents of Robert Thornhill. The many little factoids Thornhill inserts throughout this book provide surprising edutainment. I learned something about Elvis Presley that I will carry with me to my dying day. I generally am amazed at the historical knowledge of Thornhill, evident in those same factoids. Thornhill obviously does his homework before writing his stories. He has the uncanny ability to weave those factoids into the fictional plot of his mysteries, while maintaining an air of humor throughout his stories. In short, Thornhill is something of a genius at crafting a good, entertaining mystery, guaranteed to make you laugh. I’ve read quite a few of his books, and there hasn’t been a lemon in any of them. Lady Justice and the Lottery is a story everybody can enjoy, and one I strongly recommend to all readers.

Another awesome book in the Lady Justice series. This is number 14. Walt and the gang have done it again.Walt and Ox get involved in some Star Trek adventures and than get involved with the two old dudes who win the lottery. Morty and Earl. So many twists and turns and never a dull moment. Full of mystery. It has you guessing what will happen next. Also very funny. I do hope they make the Lady Justice series into a TV series or a movie. Thanks Mr. Thornhill for another amazing book!
