Lady Justice and the Assassin by Robert Thornhill is number 13 in Thornhill’s Lady Justice series of humorous mysteries. Like its predecessors, Lady Justice and the Assassin has a plot ripped from today’s headlines. The several sub-plots are blended perfectly within the main theme, which is a conspiracy to assassinate the President of the United States AND the Vice President, while they both are making public presentations half a continent apart from one another. The pretext for the assassinations could not be more plausible. In fact, I would be VERY surprised if Robert Thornhill has not made himself a focus of federal investigation for detailing so much legitimate-sounding preparation for an assassination attempt. If not for the insertion of several comical sub-plots, one might very well be excused for wondering if this was an actual conspiracy gone awry.
Lady Justice and the Assassin is flawlessly executed. As with its precursors, one cannot help but believe this story could be an actual account of the daily extremes faced by police officers everywhere. Thornhill writes as if his primary reference is his daily police log. It is hard to conceive of anyone actually making up this stuff! It is just too authentic feeling to be pure fiction. Yet, in spite of the severity of the main plot, the story is extraordinarily entertaining and humorous… too much so to NOT be fiction. Thornhill deservedly has been recognized multiple times for his Lady Justice series. Lady Justice and the Assassin seems likely to garner yet another award for this brilliantly talented author. If you are new to this series, and enjoy humor mixed with mystery, I urge you to not wait another minute; buy this book and prepare to become an avid fan of Robert Thornhill.
