The Plot :
The first book of the Lady Justice Series by Robert Thornhill, Lady Justice Takes A C.R.A.P. City Retiree Action Patrol, is a humorous mystery about Walt Williams, a crime fighting senior citizen.
At the ripe old age of 65, Walt is having a difficult time dealing with retirement. What does he do to cope with it? He decides to become a cop, something he had always dreamed of. But soon he realizes chasing dreams is not all that easy but it sure is a fun ride. After working really hard for it Walt manages to join to police force. Not everyone is happy about it but he manages to get in. Now he has to prove himself right and all the naysayers wrong.
Without too much help from his ageing limbs to chase around the bad guys, Walt has to rely on his wit and wisdom to bring the perps of Kansas city to justice. It’s a bumpy but often hilarious ride to see Walt and his partner, Ox, find very unorthodox ways of bringing criminals to justice. And they have plenty of help from their senior friends. We meet the sixty-five-year-old Willie, the former con man who has given up his shady ways to be Walt’s friend and sidekick, and Mary, the seventy-five-year-old apartment manager with a thirty-six-inch baseball bat, amazing words of wisdom from eighty-five-year-old Professor and Maggie, Walt’s sweetheart.
The book is a fast read with small byte size chapters full of action, adventure and humour. Walt and his senior set try and solve cases ranging from shop lifters, havoc creators, senior muggers to Rapists and counterfeit notes by the mob. The characters are endearing and the plot lines are simple. The book is full of witty jokes and I loved it. A quick read, I would surely recommend for a couple of laughs with mystery.
