The innocent man wrongly accused: it's a story idea strong enough that Alfred Hitchcock made many of his movies based on it. In John Lescroart's "A Certain Justice", we get a different take on this theme; although this is well-traveled ground, Lescroart is creative enough to add a couple new things and make an entertaining page-turner.

I loved this book and so did my husband. Could not guess the ending! Beseiged Glitsky faces a riot-plagued San Francisco following a racial hanging. Politics interfere and only his genius prevails.

Lescroart is one of my favorite authors and I don't know how I missed this one! A great story about bigotry causing San Francisco to have riots and fires and looting. The center of the story is Abe Glitsky (San Francisco police lieutenant) who just doesn't believe that the photo in the papers proves a man's guilt. Because he insists on investigating "by the book", he makes waves that reach Washington, D.C. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and about halfway through it, I couldn't stop until I was done. :)

A nail-biter from start to finish. Some of Lescroart's best characters are in great form here, including Wes Farrell as he tries to regain his faith in the justice system by helping an innocent man.
