Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite

Lady Justice and the Spy by Robert Thornhill is, not surprisingly, another excellent addition to the author’s Lady Justice series of comedy/mystery tales. As events and circumstances converge on our favorite senior sleuth, Walt Williams, and his friends, we find ourselves once more in the thick of the action. We get to tag along as Walt and his cadre of cronies follow a convoluted trail of clues. From killer clowns to rogue assassins who don’t exist (wink, wink), our intrepid investigators are up to the task as they match wits with criminal elements who always seem to have one more trick up their sleeves. Fortunately for Lady Justice, Walt still has a few tricks up his sleeve, too.

Lady Justice and the Spy takes on a couple of social issues which should be of concern to everybody on the planet. Beginning with a vengeful nerd nursing a 20-year grudge from high school, the story transitions smoothly to the planned termination of a government assassin who doesn’t really exist. Along the way, we are privy to a wide range of ancillary information which may or may not be factual. Thornhill does not attempt to sway your opinion; he merely suggests you do your own research and draw your own conclusions. From a global weather conspiracy to a major industry’s inconceivably avaricious plan to assure a perpetual consumer base, Lady Justice takes on almost more than she can handle in this episode. I urge readers who may not be familiar with the Lady Justice series to grab a copy of Lady Justice and the Spy, and prepare to enjoy an engaging story. Established Lady Justice fans won’t require further urging!
