A Certain Justice by John Lescroart is a gripping drama and murder mystery based on real life.

      The one exception in ''A Certain Justice'' may be Adam Dalgliesh himself, the poet-detective well known to admirers of the James canon.

Four weeks after she's defended Garry Ashe on a charge of murdering his disreputable aunt&#;in a bravura sequence that provides the most electric opening of any of James's novels&#;his barrister, brilliant, aloof Venetia Aldridge, is found stabbed to death in her chambers with a paper-knife, a barrister's wig on her head and her corpse soaked in fresh blood. Commander Adam Dalgliesh.
