Curses or coincidences? Whichever one, it doesn't ultimately matter when murder after murder pile up under the watch of Officer Walt Williams and his partner, Ox Wilson. What does matter to his boss, Captain Short, is that they stop them and find out who's killing who, and why. Walt thinks back to the curse that almost killed him and his new bride, Maggie, in Hawaii (Lady Justice Gets Lei'd) and knows that dead is dead, no matter the reason! This time, it also almost lands him and Ox in prison for the dastardly deeds, as they are near-perfectly framed by the killers. Will Lady Justice come to their rescue?
When the touring exhibit, "Discovery of King Tut", a recreation of the opening of the tomb of the Egyptian boy King Tutankhamun by Howard Carter in 1922, selected Kansas City, MO's Union Station as its premiere location for North America after touring Europe since 2008, it was widely advertised as being a replica, the original artifacts remaining under glass in a museum in Cairo. However, in Thornhill's story, a relative of the artisan that created the artificial Anubis who guarded the tomb, actually had the dog's cavity filled with rare and precious gems and metals. What follows is the mayhem created from the lust for riches.
Thornhill leads us along a twisting path of murders and deceptions by those who didn't start out innately evil, but who fall victim to sin of greed. When all is done, the reader has to wonder, was it the curse of the pharaoh's tomb extended to modern-day Kansas City, or just the natural playing out of man's struggle to remain honest when faced with so much wealth.Read more ›
The author also touched on the issue of medical marijuana which I found interesting.
I always enjoy reading Mr. Thornhill's Lady Justice books.
Lady Justice and the Pharaoh's Curse is a great get-away read, especially if you're vacationing in Kansas City! That's the best thing about the Lady Justice Series--the locations are real, as are many of the events depicted in these books, making this a fantastic destination series for any book club looking for a fun summer excursion.
An ancient Egyptian artifact (Anubis) is stolen. Soon people end up dead in mysterious ways. Some say that the "Pharaoh's Curse" is the reason behind these murders and won't be lifted until the items are returned to the Pharaoh's tomb. Walt and Ox are on the case. Meanwhile, Walt is at the trial of a suspect who is arrested for growing and using medicinal marijuana.
Another Hit By Robert Thornhill, some fascinating facts of ancient Egypt/Pharaohs and interesting photos added to the delight of this read. Also the controversial subject of legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes really leaves you thinking. Another fantastic installment in the Lady Justice Series.
(* I was lucky to receive and arc copy of this fantastic book!)
I enjoyed this type of book as a way to slow down from high intense blood and gore type so common today. I believe you will too.
