Lady Justice and the Sixth Sense by Robert Thornhill is as fresh as the daily news, and far more entertaining. The author has once again crafted a tale that is plausible, amusing and enjoyable, yet capable of spiking your blood pressure a few times. If Mr. Thornhill were writing just for me, personally, I can’t imagine how he could create anything I’d enjoy reading more than the stories in his Lady Justice series. In Lady Justice and the Sixth Sense, young Marty Singer suffers a minor mishap when a dog runs into the path of his bicycle, spilling Marty to the pavement. Helmet notwithstanding, Marty receives a bump on the head that has a rather unexpected result: for no apparent reason he starts seeing images in his head that seem to be a foretaste of events to come. Or, should I say, events that would have come about had lead character Walt Williams not intervened.

At various times throughout Lady Justice and the Sixth Sense, young Marty would make an off-hand comment that meant little to him, but which the adults around him perceived as holding a deeper meaning. The first time this happened, Walt acted on a hunch, with a most serendipitous ending. Thereafter, whenever Marty would “see” something, the grownups paid attention, contacting Walt with the information. Walt and his partner, Kevin, were able to use that information to either solve a problem, prevent a crime, or otherwise ensure that justice was served. Indeed, Marty’s “sixth sense” would have a significant impact on the entire country.

This story is fiction, but there is so much reality woven into all Robert Thornhill’s Lady Justice stories that it’s not hard to believe there is more truth than fiction hiding in the background. I highly recommend that everyone who enjoys mystery, humor, or just a good story, really should pick up any one of the episodes in the series. Lady Justice and the Sixth Sense would be a great one to start with!
