What was one of the most memorable moments of Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes?
Thanks to Audiobookboom I was introduced to a new author. I really enjoyed this audiobook it was full of great one liners and had me laughing . I loved the characters and the fact that it shows that even though they were in the later years of their life they were able to make such a great contribution to their neighborhood

The characters are a hoot, the mysteries are contemporary, the reminiscences are illuminating, and the situational humor is guaranteed to have any reader snorting their caffeine beverage! Walt retired from real estate and became a cop. His friends are also retirees of differing ages who wind up helping him. The publisher's blurb is helpful, but doesn't begin to prepare for situations like a bunch of people who never had reason to cook for themselves collaborating on a Thanksgiving dinner, or Walt's friends and lady friend helping him get dolled up in drag for an undercover assignment. With dry wit and humor, the interwoven tales add up to another great read!
George Kuch continues to be the perfect voice for Walt and friends!

Would you consider the audio edition of Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes to be better than the print version?
Not having read the print edition I am not really qualified to say. But that's not going to stop me:..
I cannot imagine any way of 'reading' this superbly written book better than that of listening to the 65 years old, newly enlisted cop, Walt William's personal reminiscences of his adventures both in and out of the police job, recounted through the voice of narrator, George Much. He brings Walt, with his grumbles, aches, pains and hilarious stories fully to life. It's like having a friend telling tales around the table (even if a few comments are a little too private to be heard in this way). And some of the situations are really laugh out loud funny, like Thanksgiving dinner, as well as all the dressing up for the undercover jobs he is asked to do.
Throughout it all, Kuch's steady, warm voice is the perfect Walt. In conversations, each character is clearly distinguishable but that hardly seems to matter: it is being Walt with all of his ideosyncracies that is important.
Any additional comments?
Walt is a great character and his friends are equally interesting, from his partner in the force to the retired con man, and the lady realtor to an unrelenting one liner comedian. The book is so packed with verbal and visual jokes (told in low key, grumpy-old-man way), that it is surprising that there is time left for the crime story. But there it is, mixed into the personal life of Walt and his friends.
Oh, this is such an enjoyable book and I am greatly indebted to the right's holder for gifting it to me, via Audiobook Boom. Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes is the second book in the series but completely stand alone. However,. I'm pretty certain that anyone listening to this who hasn't heard book one (Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P.) will immediately put it on their must get list. It's a hoot, too.
Me? I'm going to start on book three, now.
