law-enforcement, private-investigators, surprises, humor ------- What goes around comes around, whether good or bad, justified or misguided. Walt retired from real estate at 65 and from the force at 70. Now he is second guessing his actions in a whole new way by becoming a private investigator. And he still has a big target on his back from a man who blames him for another's death. Sad to say, but this one is right out of current events yet very well done. And the situational and verbal humor continue to abound!

Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite Lady Justice on the Dark Side by Robert Thornhill is a somewhat bittersweet chapter in the life of Walt Williams, Thornhill’s senior citizen founder of the City Retiree Action Patrol, or C.R.A.P. After five action-filled years as a Kansas City police officer, Walt decides it’s time to hang up his badge, while lying in a hospital bed with a bullet hole in his nether regions. That’s the ‘bitter’. But after a few days of sheer boredom, Walt decides – with more than a little urging from his brother-in-law, Kevin – to become a licensed Private Investigator and open a new business. That’s the ‘sweet’. So Walt may be done entertaining us with his police exploits, but I don’t think we’ve heard the last of him. As for this book, it is excellent. I even jumped up and fist-bumped the air a couple times, to the accompaniment of a resounding, ‘YES!” Walt has reached a point where he is no longer certain about the line between right and wrong or, put another way, between good justice and bad justice. Personally, I think he ultimately arrived at the correct conclusion. Lady Justice on the Dark Side delves into a very real and very incendiary current event, pitting a small segment of society against the police who risk life and limb to keep us safe. Thornhill does an admirable job presenting all sides of the issue. He does not champion a cause based on socio-economic realities, but airs dirty laundry from all factions. Walt and his band of companions are the ideal vehicles by which to expound ‘the rest of the story’ to readers. Very well-written, as are all his books, Lady Justice on the Dark Side is a must-read if ever I saw one. But to truly get the full impact of the value of Walt’s role in all this, one really should start reading this series from the beginning. It is not necessary to read every single book, although that would be best. Readers can start with Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P, then pick and choose whichever tales sound most intriguing, before ending with Lady Justice on the Dark Side. Be sure to read Lady Justice in the Eye of the Storm along the way; it helps set up this one.
