When an extortion plot turns into kidnapping, Walt must boldly go where no cop has gone before to save himself and the millionaire.

K. Hale of Article Write-Up writes, “Septuagenarian heroes, a Star Trek burglar, and that age-old question: What would YOU do if you won the lottery?
“Robert Thornhill’s 'Lady Justice and the Lottery' is the perfect blend of mystery and comedy. It’s a heartwarming tale of the old having to live in a world for the young, with enough witty movie references to please every generation.
“This book will keep you guessing until the end, from what crazy case Walt and Ox will tackle next, to how Earl and Morty will spend their newfound millions, to how the two stories will intertwine.
“Thornhill’s writing weaves a charming, funny, and sometimes heartbreaking tale to remind us that money doesn’t buy happiness, and it can’t bring back the past, but sometimes it just shows you who you truly are.”
