Five More Awards for the Lady Justice Mystery/Comedy Series
by BWW News Desk - Nov 28, 2013

The fifteen volume Lady Justice mystery/comedy series by award-winning author, Robert Thornhill, has received five new awards, bringing the total for the series to eleven. "Lady Justice and the Cruise Ship Murders" received a 'Five Star' award from Reader's Favorite and the Pinnacle Book Award from the National Association of Book Entrepreneurs for the 'Best New Mystery Novel' for the summer of 2013. Previous volumes receiving this award were "Lady Justice and the Sting,"" Lady Justice and Dr. Death," "Lady Justice and the Vigilante," "Lady Justice and the Candidate" and "Lady Justice and the Book Club Murders." "Lady Justice and the Assassin" received the 'Honorable Mention' designation from the Great Midwest Book Festival as well as a 'Five Star' award from Reader's Favorite. "Lady Justice and the Vet," the most recent release in the series, was also awarded the 'Five Star' designation from Reader's Favorite. "Lady Justice and the Vet" debuted with a #1 rank in Amazon's 'Cozy Mystery' and 'Humor' categories and rose to #18 in Amazon's 'Top 100.' Lee Ashford of Reader's Favorite writes; ''Lady Justice and the Vet' by Robert Thornhill is a poignant, faithfully accurate story, which could have been taken from today's headlines. Mr. Thornhill, with each new episode of the Lady Justice series, continues to surpass himself. Within the pages of 'Lady Justice and the Vet,' Robert Thornhill has presented a better, more realistic dissertation on the plight of All combat veterans, to whom we as a nation owe our all, than any I have seen anywhere else. Thornhill has brilliantly used a fictional comedic mystery story to force us to remove the blinders and take a peek at reality. 'Lady Justice and the Vet' should be required reading for every politician. ''Lady Justice and the Vet' takes aim at the atrocious mistreatment of our veterans who require far more and far better access to both physical and psychological restoration. It focuses on the high unemployment rate, the nightmares, the disabilities, and the lack of respect. Mr. Thornhill has an uncanny talent for bringing our attention to a serious problem while also entertaining and amusing us. Robert Thornhill's house will one day be a National Monument. Okay, maybe that's a little over the top, but he is a very good storyteller, and a very good writer. I anticipate with great relish each new release in his Lady Justice series. His writing is superlative, and his ability to inform and amuse, almost in the same sentence, makes him a consummate storyteller. However, don't take my word for it; buy one of his Lady Justice stories - it doesn't really matter which one - and see for yourself.' (more...)
