"Here's to the crazy ones ..."
Once again, George Kuch is Walt Williams, the 68 years old Kansas City cop, as he recounts his latest adventures in pursuit of Lady Justice. He's taken on all sorts of heavyweight oponents in the past but none come bigger than this one - the working system of the United States itself.
With Mr.Kuch voicing the indefatigable Walt, and Robert Thornhill writing the script, this is another fabulous stand alone addition to the series. Not as many jokes this time but still the wonderful characters, great writing and some very interesting ideas about the state of the nation and what needs,to be put right. And someone, of force, is out to get him. Marvelous listening, highly recommended

What did you like best about this story?
The 9th installment of the lady Justice series , another controversial subject, Politics.
Walt Williams is called on a top secret special mission , to protect an independent candidate for presidency, Ben Foster. He is not the average politician, he was once the Mayor of a Small city in Montana. What he stands for is not the typical political views, he stands for the people.

The Lady Justice series finally available in audio
The first half of this 26 book Lady Justice series is now available in audio and others are coming. Lady Justice and the Candidate is Book 9 in the series. Let's start with the narration by George Kuch; it is quite simply perfect. The plot/story is about a presidential candidate from Montana who without partisan backing makes huge waves in the election. Our 69 year old protagonist/hero is named Walt Williams and he is from Kansas City. He is the body and voice double for the candidate so his job is to go out into the crowds after the candidate speaks to shake hands and kiss babies. He is needed because it is too dangerous for the candidate because of death threats. The novel has a huge surprise ending.
Walt Williams is the protagonist of all 26 books in the series. At age 67 he joined the Kansas City police force as part of their new C.R.A.P. (City Retiree Action Patrol) program. Walt also got married for the first time at age 67 and his wife Maggie is a real estate salesman his age who also has never been married before.
The author of this series is Robert Thornhill. He started writing books seven years ago at age 67. He is a two finger typist who has never taken a writing course, so the process is slow. Nevertheless, during the last seven tears he has written 26 novels in this series as well as several children's books and a cookbook (37 books total published to date). Thornhill's wife Peg is listed as illustrator on some of the books. He has a masters degree in psychology but his working career was a real estate broker. Thornhill's oddball characters are vivid and likable. The novels in this series are usually considered humor, but I prefer to refer to them as mystery comedy genre. There is humor, but there are also mystery and valuable fife lessons.
The audio novels in the Lady Justice series are mostly about 5 hours in length.
