Lady Justice has unwittingly entered a religious war. Who better to fight for her than Walt Williams?
Walt and his sweetie, Maggie, have just returned from a honeymoon that was packed with love, fun, mystery, and danger. Now it's time for them to adjust to living under the same roof - quite the challenge for a couple in their sixties, both of whom have never been married before! Suddenly Maggie's feeding Walt fiber - lots of fiber - taking up almost all the closet space, and even getting rid of Walt's favorite old recliner. But nothing could be better than having Maggie by his side when a great threat arises and Walt is, as usual, smack dab in the middle.
When Walt and his partner, Ox, are patrolling the Gay Pride Parade, a bomb goes off near them. They come out okay, but many are dead or seriously injured. Shortly after, the police squad learns the bombs are homemade by a group of religious fanatics calling themselves God's Avenging Angels. The Avenging Angels believe it's their job to rain fire and brimstone on Kansas City, their Sodom and Gomorrah. The next attacks could be anywhere in the metro, so all cops are needed to comb the city and find the perpetrators. Walt and Ox are on the case, which continues to be explosive.
In this compelling addition to the Lady Justice series, Robert Thornhill brings back all the characters listeners have come to love for more hilarity and higher stakes. You'll laugh, and you'll be on the edge of your seat until the big finish. Don't miss Lady Justice and the Avenging Angels!

""Ready to go treasure hunting?"
Oh, this is such an enjoyable book and it's hard to stop listening once started. But it is also sheer delight taken in smaller bites.
For anyone coming fresh to this treasure of a series, Walt is a retired realtor who turned cop in his mid sixties. He is a great character in every sense of the word and his friends are equally interesting, from Ox, his partner in the force, to the retired con man, not to mention his trouble making 80 something father plus a tennant who is an unrelenting one liner comedian. And now that Walt is back from his Hawaiian honeymoon and adapting to married life with Maggie, his long time love, the book is again so packed with verbal and visual jokes (told in low key, grumpy-old-man way), that it is surprising that there is time left for the crime story. But there is, and this time it is nasty:- facing down a fanatical murderous religious terrorist movement.
I cannot imagine any way of 'reading' this superbly written book better than that of listening to Walt William's personal reminiscences of his adventures both in and out of the police job, recounted through the voice of narrator, George Much. He brings Walt, with his grumbles, aches, pains and hilarious stories fully to life. It's like having a friend telling tales around the table (even if a few comments are a little too private to be heard in this way).
Throughout it all, Kuch's steady, warm voice is the perfect Walt. In conversations, each character is clearly distinguishable but that hardly seems to matter: it is being Walt with all of his ideosyncracies that is important. And Kuch is Walt.
Lady Justice and the Avenging Angels is the fourth book in the series but completely stand alone. Anyone who has already met Walt will know this book will be unmissable. If you haven't started the series yet, don't wait: get this book and look forward to an exciting, fun and thoughtful book peopled with characters you won't forget.
