Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite

Lady Justice and the Broken Hearts by Robert Thornhill is the latest episode featuring Walt Williams and his gang of renown in Thornhill’s “Lady Justice” mystery/comedy series. Not surprisingly, it is another winning combination of humor and drama, in which our inimitable hero prevails in his ongoing fight ‘for truth, justice and the American way’, if I may borrow a quote from the old Superman television series. In this episode, Thornhill shares with readers a chapter from his own life, making the story a richly poignant one. As always, Walt Williams tackles several issues ripped from today’s headlines, demonstrating the intuitive logic and critical thinking skills that helped make America great. One cannot read these stories without rooting for Walt in all his exploits.

Lady Justice and the Broken Hearts is in a class by itself. This is a story I sincerely believe most people will enjoy reading, regardless of their usual genre preferences. The manner in which Thornhill juxtaposes reality into his fiction is fresh and authentic, blurring the line of distinction between ‘real’ and ‘made up’. The result is a story one can willingly accept as having really taken place as described. Walt, although a fictional creation, is based on a composite of the real-life heroes who stand between John Q. Public and evil intentions all across our land. I believe that is why all Thornhill’s “Lady Justice” stories are so captivating. Lady Justice and the Broken Hearts is suitable for all ages. If you’ve got a reluctant reader you are trying to cure, this book would be an exceptional choice for that purpose. But readers of all ages and interests will enjoy it, too.
