Helpful Score: 1
This is not Lescroat's first novel but his first novel centering on police inspector Abe Glitsky. The book is a little stilted, the author spends too much time away from the main plot. After reading the book, the actual plot takes up only a fraction of a 400+ page novel. It was also missing the witticism of his other works, at least until Dismas Hardy shows up late in the novel. If you are a Lescroat fan, you will still enjoy reading "A Certain Justice". If you are new to the author, start with a different one.

I'm not much for mysteries & thrillers. Handed to me by a friend who knew I grew up in The City, he wanted to know if the places mentioned in the book were fact or fiction. I started skimming thru the book only to find myself reading it. The names of the streets & districts are real. As I read I found myself walking on the streets & through the neighborhoods, remembering how things were. It's been a while. Hard for me to visualize the things that happened in the book happening int The City by the Bay, but it makes for a good read. I've recommended it to all my friends & relatives who still live in The City & in the Bay Area.

This is a gripping story. It is ideologically scary.
