Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When distinguished criminal lawyer Venetia Aldridge defends a young man for the brutal murder of his mother, she views the case as simply another opportunity to demonstrate her brilliance in the courtroom. But within weeks of the trial Aldridge is found dead at her desk, a bloodstained barristers wig on her head. And as Commander Adam Dalgliesh of Scotland Yard attempts to make sense of events, the murders continue, inexorably spiraling into fresh complexities of horror.

“Shocking . . . fascinating . . . A Certain Justice sucks the reader in right from the dramatic first line.”

–Los Angeles Times

“This is a P. D. James case to shiver through and revel in–dark page by dark page.”

–Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“Enthralling . . . [P. D. Jamess] stories always captivate.”

–Associated Press

“Taut, suspenseful, and deeply penetrating.”

–Baltimore Sun

“Gripping.”

–The Wall Street Journal

“A compelling tale of pride, deceit, and revenge.”

–St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Synopsis:

In a masterful new Adam Dalgliesh mystery, P.D. James enters the labyrinthine world of the law, forging a deeply compelling human drama from the complex passions that lie behind both murder and justice.
