Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite

Lady Justice and the Organ Traders by Robert Thornhill is not about musical instruments. An organized and sophisticated illegal kidney transplant operation has been active in Kansas City for an unknown period of time. It came to the attention of our old friend, Walt Williams, when one of his tenants was found dead inside a burned-out car. Due to a fortuitously quick response time, the Fire Department was able to extinguish the fire before the body was completely burned up. The Coroner determined that the victim was missing a recently-removed kidney. Shortly thereafter, a body disappeared from the morgue, leading the FBI to get involved in the investigation. Walt and his partner, Ox, are thrust into the forefront of a plan to break up the ring of organ traders, in another exciting, action-packed adventure of the Lady Justice series.

Lady Justice and the Organ Traders is the latest in a long line of superbly written comedic mysteries. Mr. Thornhill circumspectly addresses the subject of buying and selling body parts, presenting both sides of a practice considered immoral by many. As with so many other topics, the distinction between right and wrong is blurred. Ride along with Walt Williams as he witnesses firsthand the good, the bad, and the ugly of organ trading. This story will bring a tear to your eye. Lady Justice and the Organ Traders is a worthy addition to the Lady Justice series. I urge all to read this book, but any book in the series will get you hooked on the escapades of Walt Williams and the City Retiree Action Patrol. What are you waiting for?
