I really liked the story and the back ground info on the house. My only complaint would be how convenient ever thing was. It seemed like every time something was found in the house, Walt knew a guy. The narrator, George Kuch, wouldn't be my favorite. He just seemed tired of all of it- the characters and the interactions.

    I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. So.... the main character doesn't appear for the first 15% of the novel and the rest of it is literally an episode of Homes Under The Hammer with a bit of murder and ghosts along the way. If we're going by Homes Under The Hammer standard, Walt completely sucks at renovating his own home as many of the people on the programme have build and renovated homes for the cost of Walt's down-payment of $50,000.

Everything felt super convenient because every problem that popped up, Walt would know somebody who could fix the problem. All in all, this didn't actually feel like a Walt Whitman novel and I found it to be a disappointment.

    I like all the Lady Justice books. They're lightweight for sure, but written with humor and an interesting cast of regulars solving the mysteries. I like all the Lady Justice books. They're lightweight for sure, but written with humor and an interesting cast of regulars solving the mysteries.

    Another great book in the Lady Justice series. I haven’t read all of them so know I missed a little bit of the main characters backgrounds, but that doesn’t affect the story at all. All the tragedies that happened in this mansion is unreal (in a good way). The curse of this mansion definitely dealt a lot of pain and suffering. I loved the way the ending came out as well. Very good book that is a must listen.

    Maggie talk Walt into buying a run down mansion so they can restore it to it's former glory and than flip it for a profit. What a money pit filled with ghosts and hidden secrets.

    It’s that time of year for ghosts and goblins so it’s no surprise that Robert Thornhill has discovered a spooky old house and woven a possible scenario of its history for his latest mystery/comedy in the Lady Justice series. Number 33, “Lady Justice and the Mystery Mansion” prefaces his story with an alleged curse upon the cliffs of the Missouri River by the Osage tribe’s medicine man, Ka’-wa-sab-be, upon the forced march from Missouri to Oklahoma in 1825.

Number 33, “Lady Justice and the Mystery Mansion” prefaces his story with an alleged curse upon the cliffs of the Missouri River by the Osage tribe’s medicine man, Ka’-wa-sab-be, upon the forced march from Missouri to Oklahoma in 1825. From there, we learn all the previous owners from the time the mansion on Gladstone Avenue was built in 1903, until the present when Walt’s wife, Maggie, decided to buy and restore it, had tragedies that ended in many deaths. During the renovation, they encounter restless spirits, a corpse and bloody knife. But all is not totally sad, because through these discoveries, justice is served at last. This book is fast-paced, logically knit together, and satisfying in the conclusion…the mark of excellent craftsmanship on the part of the author. Thumbs up, Bob!!

    Between the wife with a vision to restore a once impressive mansion and a reluctant husband who knows just who to call, long ago wrongs are righted and surprises happen. Another excellent read from the annals of Lady Justice! George Kuch continues to be the very best as narrator.

    Lady Justice #33 This was a great story. It has been a dream of mine to have a grand historical home to rehab. After reading this book, even though it ended well, I'm not so sure that I would want to deal with possible hauntings or curses. Lady Justice #33 This was a great story.

With a great theme; curses, spirits and mystery I was engrossed from the first page. Added bonus the beautiful photos which really helped capture the moment bringing me into Walt & Maggie's world. Overall I was very satisfied with Lady Justice and the Mystery Mansion and feel those who love a great mystery, with a "ghostly" touch will enjoy as well. (A) Definite five-star read.

A slightly different story this time in Robert Thornhill's excellent Lady Justice series, as related by retired realtor, turned elderly cop, now private eye, Walt Williams. Walt and his wife, Maggie, buy an old and derelict mansion which Maggie wants to restore to it's formed magnificence. Not Walt's choice, but Maggie is so excited by it, he cannot resist despite his reservation that it will simply be a money pit. His friends all tend to agree. But as work progresses, and Maggie researches the house's history, he finds he has purchased more than he expected. Written with all of the humour, anticipation, thoughtful ideas and the marvellous set of supporting characters present in previous Lady Justice books, this is another delightful tale. And again, George Kutch is Walt, himself, intimately relating the story, warts and all, to the listeners, as well as voicing the other characters. As ever, a great performance. Another stand alone book, number 33 in the series. A pleasure and a joy. Recommended.

    As always with any Book by Robert Thornhill, you know that it will be fast moving, entertaining, full of action and mystery and some humor, and this book was no exception. I love the characters and storyline, which usually reflects what is going on in the world or in the Authors life. A fun read, and I can't wait to see what will happen next with our motley crew.

    Lady Justice and the Mystery Mansion is another great short story by Robert Thornhill.

    I want to thank the author for the gift of this book. Another great book with Walt and Maggie in it. Sometimes restoration of a mansion is not always a good idea when you have ghost running around and a curse. In the restoration project they find some dark hidden secrets. A must read for a fun mystery

    Haunted Mansion restored Fast easy read. Several typos distracted from the story. Elderly couple buys an old decrepit mansion, intent on restoring it’s faded beauty and making a profit. As they have the old place refurbished, many mysteries surface. Nothing scary. YA friendly.

But they had no clue what they were letting themselves in for. As Maggie works on making a scrap book of the mansions chequered past, Walt is left to deal with the workers who refuse to enter because of the strange goings on. Walt has no idea he will be playing a part in helping a ghost move on to the other side, getting an innocent man out of jail and finding stole money as well as getting an ancient curse removed. George Kuch still manages to pull off an excellent example of why he is still the only voice for Walt Williams and his friends.
