Audio Book Review: Lady Justice Takes A. C.R.A.P. by Robert Thornhill

 Walter Williams is a 65 year old retired real estate agent, who may be tired of real estate, but he's not ready to sit in his rocking chair just yet. Unbelievably Walt decides to start a second career as a police officer and against all the odds he succeeds.

As a police officer Walt has loads of adventures, he goes under cover in a strip club, catches a murderer etc. There is lots of humor in this 'cozy' tale, the humor being of the 'men's locker room' type, with lots of references to male and female body parts, love making in old age, you get the picture. Much of it is witty, but a whole lot of it I just found crude. Maybe it's because I was listening to this book on audio, I don't know. There were lots of enjoyable moments, smiley moments and laugh out loud moments too, but much of it was also not to my taste and those moments over shadowed what otherwise would have been an enjoyable witty tale. Aside from my particular taste in humor, I thought the writing was excellent, the characters interesting.

As I said, I listened to this book on audio, and the narrator George Kuch, was a treat. He really captured the character of Walt for me and made him come alive in my mind. He was fabulous.
