    2. I received this book for free from the author in exchange for a review. All too infrequently does a story come along that is just absolute fun!

(Fun, in case you missed it.)Walt Williams is a fiesty 66-year-old real estate retiree who has decided that being retired isn't all it's cracked up to be. What does he decide to do about it? He decides he wants to become a cop! [...]

    3. The first three books in The Lady Justice series for 99¢ smileazon/gp/product/B0This was such a fun read! Mostly humor with some mystery and lots of crime solving. The cast of characters is terrific. The one liners were pretty funny and of course I ended up reading much of the book aloud to my husband since my laughing was making him curious.On to the next installment of the Lady Justice series!

    4. I really really enjoyed this book! Not only did I laugh out loud quite often but I also softly chuckled my way through the book.This is the first of its kind that I have read. That being a "comedy mystery."The author is so witty and a great storyteller!The main character is Walt, a retired real estate agent who begins a second career at age 65 as a police office in the C.R.A.P. program. (City Retiree Action Patrol). Walt is so funny! I love all his observations!There is a lot of action in this b [...]

    5. I won't attempt a synopsis, but will just say that I loved the book and hope the rest of the series is this good. Good humor, a little racy, but not uncomfortably so. Just down-to-earth funny. The crimes of course are serious matters, but our hero does have a light-hearted way of looking at things. I'd say that this is primarily a guy book, but as a senior-aged woman I enjoyed looking in.

His behemoth partner comes to love him when he actually saves his life! After so many successful cases, the force decides to create a City Retiree Action Patrol, in which [...]

    11. This book was such a cute light read. I didn't have to try to remember who all the characters were or how difficult the plot was. I just had to read it and enjoy it. I could put it down and come back and easily remember where I was. Some novels I have to backtrack to remember characters and plot. This one I just laughed til I cried and loved the crazy people. And I look forward to the next installment to see what trouble they would get into the next time.

    12. Tongue in cheek fun with a moral to the story woven in! What fun I had reading this first installment of this series. Lady Justice isn't blind, and I love that the theme makes it clear that we can't discard a generation of funny and brilliant people, nor blind ourselves to their value because they (we) are aging. I love the spunk of the characters and the witty phrasing throughout!

    13. The first book in the series is an interesting read, but very quick and easy. Fast paced, with very short, funny chapters, and chock-full of puns! A good book for the beach, perhaps? And since it's witty and light-hearted, this book will appeal to nearly everyone. Have some fun, and read this book tonight!Thanks Mr. Thornhill. I'm sending this book to my mom as well. :D

    14. My daughter promised me this would be as funny as the Stephanie Plum series - I wasn't laughing out loud but it was humorous. a good book for guys as they will surely be laughing out loud with all the guy humor. I did enjoy the C.R.A.P. BOOK 1 and will surely read the others. No big story plot but lots of short incidents that occur in the daily routine of the police.

Crime fighting like you never imagined.Brace yourself for some new reasons to roll your eyes around seniors. And mind your manners or they just might whoop you!

    17. Robert Thornhill is an excellent writer of mystery/comedy. This is shown in his first novel Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P City Retiree Action Patrol. Just the title of the senior police action group gives me a chuckle. Walt Williams has retired from his occupation as a realtor, but soon finds out that he is bored and at 66, not too old to continue in some sort of job. He soon finds his niche at the police department as a volunteer with the CPP, Civil Police Patrol. “I vividly recall the day I s [...]

    18. Walter Williams is a 66-year-old retiree. One day he wakes up and realizes that he wants to be a cop and help Lady Justice. The police have a program going on that allows citizens to complete a program and work with the police force. The majority of the book follows Walt's journey through the program, solving capers, and eventually becoming a full-fledged policeman. While it is tagged as a mystery/comedy, it is definitely more comedy than mystery. It was fun getting to know Walt and his senior f [...]

    20. What a great book to start the series! First of all, the title will definitely grab your attention. If you like mysteries, and you like comedy, you will love this book!

It's the story of Walt, a retired realtor, who witnesses a mugging and decides he needs to help out Lady Justice, and do something meaningful with his life. So he becomes a cop.

Thornhill's hero, Walt Williams, is our age, a new retiree aged 66. After having a fast paced career that has come to a dead stop, he wonderswhat to do with the rest of his life.

    22. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.Okay, so I finally listened to book 1 in the Lady Justice series (having listened to four others of the series first) and while you don't need to have read book 1 to understand book 2 (and book two for book three etc) as all of the books are independent, it was nice to finally listen to how Walt began his journey. It was funny and enjoyable and I though that Walt's friends were brilliant. I particular [...]

    23. Imagine for a moment that Barnaby Jones or Ben Matlock become rookie cops, then drop them into an episode of NYPD Blue. Add some Middle School humor coming from the mouths of senior citizens, for example- "I'll have a banana split," he ordered. "Crushed nuts?" she asked. "Naw, just arthritis," he replied. Add a stream of consciousness narrative between crimes relating the joys, pains and sometimes humiliations of aging and you have an idea of this book.This isn't a hard-boiled police procedural [...]

Foiling: thieves, murders and the Russian Mob Walt and his band of old folks rule.I found Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P. a fun and lighthearted read. I laughed many times throughout the book.

    25. I got this book as a free download, and I really liked it. This is the first book of the Lady Justice series, and I found it so refreshing, not only was it full of relatable characters, action and humor, but what I really enjoyed is that all the characters are older and still able to contribute to life. So many times I have read books were it seemed if somebody was 50 years old they are too old to do anything fun and just sit at home to bake or knit. But Walt and his friends are out solving crim [...]

    26. Very fun, easy-reading book. It reads like a sitcom - not a lot of depth and drama, but lots of humor (much of it will be familiar to anyone who regularly gets jokes forwarded to their e-mail) and action. The only issue I had was with the stereotyping present in some of the characters - some of that is too be expected, since the book is intended to be funny and over the top, but some of it was a little too much for me. Other than that, a great quick read, perfect for vacation or a relaxing day a [...]

    27. A very entertaining book, without being weighty or too dramatic. I got this book as a Christmas present (I asked for it after seeing it on the giveaway list), and it was good company for chilly evenings when nothing's on TV. I intend to get the next book for my next break away from school!I found the situations very funny, perhaps a bit unbelievable, but hey, fiction isn't always supposed to be realistic! The characters were all charming and likeable, and the reflections on age and activity wer [...]

    28. This short, entertaining book is about Walt Williams, who is a retired realtor that joins the local police force. This book is a quick and amusing read about the contributions that seniors can make. The book contains short chapters, each of which tells one of Walt's adventures. This book has humor for all ages not just seniors. If you enjoyed "Dog on it: A Chet and Bernie Mystery", you will probably like this book.

    29. This has to be one of the funniest books I have read in a long time. It's just bawdy enough to catch one off guard every once in a while yet it would qualify as a cozy mystery. I was in tears laughing. I will never look at a chicken egg the same way again. Read the book to understand what I'm talking about.

    30. I thought this book was pretty good. It sounds like it was a first attempt, and has since become the start of a series. I found the characters to be charming, and I just coudln't help but laugh at some of the situations. It seemed to be a lot of "situations" packed into a small space, but overall, a good first! I definately plan to read more from this author.
