Lady Justice and the Vet by Robert Thornhill – FREE Nov. 7-11, 2013

Men have been fighting and slaughtering one another since the beginning of time.

Brave men and women leave their homes, friends and families and travel thousands of miles to foreign lands to fight for liberty and justice.

Soon they find that the realities of war are far removed from the recruiter’s hype.

Many die on the field of battle; many more return home with wounds both physical and psychological.

For those that make the ultimate sacrifice, the war is over, but for those that survive, it is far from over.

Those who have served bravely and risked their lives deserve the opportunity to return to their homes, find jobs, have children and enjoy the life of freedom for which they fought.

Too often, it just doesn’t happen.

Ben Singleton, a Marine veteran, had returned from a tour of duty in Afghanistan and was having difficulty adjusting to civilian life.

Fate, coincidence, or something else thrust him right into the heart of some of Walt and Ox’s most difficult cases.

Our heroes find themselves knee-deep in trouble as they go undercover in a nursing home to smoke out practitioners of Medicaid fraud, meanwhile, Islamic terrorists with ties to the Taliban are plotting to attack one of Kansas City’s most cherished institutions.

Join Walt and his band of senior sidekicks on another emotional roller coaster ride that will have you shedding tears of laughter one minute and sorrow the next.

REVIEWS

“Trauma is hell on earth. Trauma resolved is a gift from the gods.”   ―Peter A. Levine

Each generation of soldiers bring a hidden host of demons back with them from the battlefield. We call them “shell shocked,” “anti-social,” “scarred.” We keep them at arms’ length, never wanting to make direct contact but are ever watchful from the corners of our eyes, always vigilant of the crazy that may break loose around us.

A dear friend of mine went from the rice paddies of Viet Nam straight to the psychiatric ward of a V. A. hospital. Thirty years later, he still felt exposed and vulnerable standing in line to order a fast food burger. Crowds sent him into a cold sweat. He always sat with his back against a wall, ever vigilant, ever wary. Sadly, his experience is not the exception.

Robert Thornhill brings us face to face with these demons. We see through his words the true price paid for the freedoms we take for granted. For it is our service members and, perhaps more painfully, their families, who live this hell on earth. It is their call to duty, their sacrifices that have left scars on our public psyche. Scars that will never truly heal. Scars that will cost us dearly both monetarily and psychologically for years to come.

One of the most timely and well written Lady Justice novels to date, “Lady Justice and The Vet” gives you a brief glimpse into PTSD and the realities of war, yet hasn’t lost the sense of humor that Walt and his merry band of characters brings into every Lady Justice adventure. References to Old Man Feeney stopping up the toilets are as familiar and (oddly) comforting to Lady Justice fans as are the Kansas City land marks sprinkled throughout the story.

Thank you, Robert, for reminding us that heroes and demons are made in every battle, even after the fighting has ended.

*****

LADY JUSTICE AND THE VET is a thought-provoking tale that will dig deep into the hearts of many people across the globe.

Whether we like it or not, we are all somehow affected by war. The battles are inevitable as told in this story which focuses on PTSD. Soldiers are not the only ones who fall victim to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The family and friends of our freedom fighters feel the pain often, too.

The author gingerly approaches this sensitive topic with ease, yet the readers will find it to be raw and very, very real. Emotions and interests will be piqued, and some may even find themselves shedding a tear or two as we traverse into the minds and memories of the numerous brave veterans spotlighted throughout.

This is a phenomenally well-told story of just several of the many men and women who continue to suffer from this often ignored mental ailment.

Remember to thank a vet today.
