LADY JUSTICE AND THE PHARAOH'S CURSE
By
Robert Thornhill

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.

Being from KC and living on Maui, I am so glad to find Robert's books. I have now read all of them and this one was just as fantastic as the others. Mr. Thornhill brings me back home in each book he writes as i know exactly all the places he mentions. And Lady Justice gets Leid was great as living on Maui he took me to place I know of as well! Even if you are not from Kansas City or live on Maui The Lady Justice Series is one to not pass up. Robert can keep you engrossed in mystery and rolling on the floor from laughter! You will love all the characters in his books. Keep on with the Lady Justice Series. And after reading this one, I've got Egypt on my bucket List!

Another great addition to the Lady Justice series. There was some Egyptian history on the curse of King Tut's tomb with pictures from an exhibit. Good mystery and suspense!
The author also touched on the issue of medical marijuana which I found interesting.
I always enjoy reading Mr. Thornhill's Lady Justice books.

I love all the Lady Justice series. They have humor, older heroes and quirky characters that never fail to entertain. There are lots of references to old TV shows, old jokes, cliches and funny mistakes by stupid criminals. It's a fast read, a fun plot and perfect for a light-hearted summer read. Once you get to know the people, you'll be hooked. I hope this ends up as a TV series. More fun than a barrel of cobras. FIve stars.

An Egyptian curse in Kansas City? Only the imagination of Bob Thornhill could come up with this one. Mummies, hookers and our ever loving band of frolicsome characters take Walt and Ox on a sinister who-done-it adventure ride.

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.

Lady Justice and the Pharaoh's Curse by Robert Thornill

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!)

A soft easy read. Want to read a good mystery with bits if humor? This is a good book to relax with if the answer is yes.
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.

The creative storyline: a man with an uncle who created a duplicate of tutenkamen's Anubis statue and filled it with jewels... And then there is the group of Walt and friends: Ox and Judy, Mary, dad and Rebecca, wife Maggie, oh, don't forget Kevin and Victoria...and that's just the beginning. This is the real story, how families are made from the most diverse group of people through shared experiences and adventures. Each chapter reads almost like the writer has started a new story, but don't worry, just like the diverse group of friends, the various threads are brought together, one by one, to create a simply satisfying tale. Enjoy!
