Lady Justice and the Vet by Robert Thornhill is a poignant, faithfully accurate story, which could have been taken from today's headlines. Mr. Thornhill, with each new episode of the Lady Justice series, continues to surpass himself. Within the pages of Lady Justice and the Vet, Robert Thornhill has presented a better, more realistic dissertation on the plight of ALL combat veterans, to whom we as a nation owe our all, than any I have seen anywhere else. Thornhill has brilliantly used a fictional comedic mystery story to force us to remove the blinders and take a peek at reality. Lady Justice and the Vet should be required reading for every politician.
Lady Justice and the Vet takes aim at the atrocious mistreatment of our veterans who require far more and far better access to both physical and psychological restoration. It focuses on the high unemployment rate, the nightmares, the disabilities, and the lack of respect. Mr. Thornhill has an uncanny talent for bringing our attention to a serious problem while also entertaining and amusing us. Robert Thornhill's house will one day be a National Monument. Okay, maybe that's a little over the top, but he is a very good storyteller, and a very good writer. I anticipate with great relish each new release in his Lady Justice series. His writing is superlative, and his ability to inform and amuse, almost in the same sentence, makes him a consummate storyteller. However, don't take my word for it; buy one of his Lady Justice stories - it doesn't really matter which one - and see for yourself.

It also showed that veterans (of any age) can be useful in society even with life-altering injuries. Even though this book was somewhat somber in tone, it was still enjoyable. Walt and the gang had plenty of adventures.
This book also had audio problems with George Kuch's performance. I'm not sure what is going on but his voice would change tone in mid-sentence, would suddenly get louder and then resume normal volume level, and the character's voice would also change mid-sentence. It was very distracting. I hope whatever is causing these issues will be resolved. I love George Kuch's performances and hate that there are audio problems preventing his performances from being perfect.
We flash forward to the present time for this Vet who is now having nightmares and flashbacks each time he hears loud noises such as thunder or a gunshot. These sounds flash him back to another time that he wants to forget but he cannot. He is thrown into different scenarios that put him into the path of the main character, Walt Williams and his partner, Ox.
Walt tries to help this man and others for he is suffering from flashbacks himself of an incident in his line of work as a policeman (jumping off a building) that continues to torment him at night. There are other things happening as Walt is trying to heal himself - terrorists are plotting to kill Americans and one of these terrorists is an American who is a disgruntled Vet.
In each of these books Walt’s life is on the line as he tries to right the wrong in this world. Lady Justice isn’t always on the right side.
The author continues to write stories that deal with current subjects and tough issues and intersperses some of his contagious humor into each story. I know that when I pick up one of these quick-reads that I will be entertained and informed of what is plaguing our world. I highly recommend all books in the Lady Justice Series.
The one thing that really glared at me was how one of the terrorists was recruited last, but ended up making the plans and running the operation.
I received this book as a free git from the author. The writing was light and easy to get into. I am dyslexic and a slow reader, but was able to read the entire thing in one day while watching tv and with a multitude of distractions.

This audio book came out just in time for Veteran's Day. The subject of PTSD that traumatize returning vets or as in Walt's case a traumatic event are brought to the public's eye. A very good accounting.
Walt and his senior crew are joined by vets in taking out terrorists, and other bullies.
Thank You to our vets!
The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. George Kuch gives an excellent performance!!!
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
