So much packed into one amazing book!
The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. Wow, what can I say? There was so much packed into this one book that I'm overwhelmed (but in a good way). There's a hurricane, officer-involved shootings, protests and near riot conditions. I can't wait to start the next book to find out what will happen next!

Way to go Walt
Oh my! A hurricane what! As always Robert Thornhill has caught my attention and kept me entertained. I find when I read one of Roberts books I learn more about what ever topic he has chosen for the story line. In this book I got a first hand look at what a hurricane can be like. Well done again Robert. Also George Kuch does the most amazing job of narrating this series. He is the true voice of Walt Williams. Not to give anything away but the ending of this book leaves the reader wondering where this story will go next in Walt's life

The water we drink. The air that we breathe.
Author Robert Thornhill's gloriously funny series about the elderly cop, Walt Williams, his partner Ox, and his assortment of curious friends, has frequently also raised thought provoking issues. But this book is darker than the earlier stories as he and Ox are involved in a shooting which threatens to bring large scale racial violence to Kansas City. To remove them temporarily from the public eye, the couple, with their wives, are sent on a two weeks, work related, luxury holiday - and straight into violence of another sort: the 2014 hurricane which hits their holiday location within two days of their arrival. There they experience first hand how desperation can affect even the most law abiding men.
Although still retaining the wonderfully lugubrious style and flashes of comedy, Walt here is more world weary, his musings less certain that he can continue to fight for lady justice. As in all of the earlier books, George Kuch is Walt Williams, delivering the first person recounting with impeccable talking-to-the-listener-personally style. He catches all of the nuances, the humour, the fears and small successes perfectly.
A darker story than it's earlier counterparts, this is still a book I highly recommend both for the thrills, the friendships and the subject matter itself. The whole series never disappoints.
