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_descriptionKevin Shea is an innocent man caught in a sticky situation that makes him look as though he is a racist murderer. The only person that knows of his innocence is Lieutenant Abe Glitsky who is the head of the city's homicide detail. Unfortunately, Lieutenant Glitsky is distracted when an ex-lover and United States senator shows up, only to put her own spin on the story tearing the city apart. Now Shea must take matters into his own hands to prove his innocence before it's too late.
