Ox and Judy are off to Alaska on a honeymoon cruise and invite Walt and Maggie to tag along.
Their peaceful plans are soon shipwrecked by the murder of two fellow passengers.
The murders appear to be linked to a century-old legend involving a cache of gold stolen from a prospector and buried by two thieves.
Their seven day cruise is spent hunting for the gold and eluding the modern day thieves intent on possessing it at any cost.
Another nail-biting mystery that will have you on the edge of your seat one minute and laughing out loud the next.
Avis Jenkins of Article Write-Up writes, "Lady Justice and the Cruise Ship Murders...another home run for Thornhill.
Being a fan of other novels in Robert Thornhill's Lady Justice Series, I was eager to jump into this new offering. Thornhill, in his usual creative manner, has weaved yet another witty murder/mystery. In this work, we find Walt Williams, one of Kansas City's finest, back at it again.
On the heels of the unbelievable capture of a serial rapist, Walt, his wife, his partner (Ox) and Ox's new wife all head on a much deserved adventure (and honeymoon). This time, they move offshore to enjoy an excursion on an Alaskan Cruise line.
On a separate (but simultaneously connected trip) they are joined by attorney, Mark Stewart and his wife. They, too, are embarking on an adventure. A prominent archeological professor, eager to locate the long lost gold of Mark's ancestors, has contacted Mark--believing he has been successful in locating the treasure. Mark, a skeptic by nature, agrees to make the trip regardless of the outcome.
We find Walt and his crew on offshore games of cat and mouse, bait and switch, and the search for lost prospector's gold. Spinning its way through email account hacking, warding off revenge from newly released inmates and salmon bakes--this contribution continues to offer the clever capers we've come to enjoy from Thornhill.
Through wonderfully interlaced complications and unexpected outcomes, Lady Justice and the Cruise Ship Murders easily joins its series predecessors as equally funny and uniquely entertaining.
Kudos, again, to Thornhill on his latest series addition!"
