As a tribute to our veterans - Lady Justice and the Vet, the 15th volume in the award-winning Lady Justice series.
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.
Review by Jaime A. Giraldi (Amazon.com)
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. And, 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.
