Description
Set in San Francisco, A Certain Justice is about justice denied in a most violent fashion, and the ultimately heroic actions of a so-called common man, Kevin Shea, who becomes involved with the law to the extent that he is hunted, hounded and nearly destroyed for an act he never committed. With him is a young woman, Melanie Sinclair, who also seems at first flush to be almost superficial, ordinary and predictable, but who becomes something much deeper as she joins forces with Kevin Shea in an urban and contemporary version, on one level, of a Thelma and Louise/Bonnie and Clyde, except that this couple is absolutely innocent.
Leading the hunt for the fugitive pair is Abe Glitsky, Dismas Hardy's close friend, now chief of homicide, whose job it is to bring them in dead or alive. Compounding his troubles - and threatening the innocence not only of the accused but of those who would bring them to justice - is the overpowering presence of a key U.S. senator who demands a quick resolution to the matter, and whose ambitions extend beyond the mere fight for truth and justice...

display_descriptionA brutal murder rocks a city.  An innocent man stands accused.  And justice is the next to die.

In a city of tolerance and hope, everything came apart.  One man died  at the hands of another.  The next victim was killed by a mob.  Now fires burn in the night, helicopters throb through the air, and politicians, lawyers and cops vie for the remnants of power...

Somewhere in the once-placid streets of San Francisco, a young man is on the run, charged by the media with a crime he didn't commit, hounded by demagogues, hunted by a desperate police department.  One cop knows that Kevin Shea is innocent of a brutal racial murder.  An ambitious politician will use Shea for her own ends.   And a down-and-out lawyer is all that stands between Kevin Shea and an even more atrocious crime.   For when there's no law left, justice is the only hope...
