9780451217769: A Certain Justice (Abe Glitsky)

When the angry white mob poured out of the bar on San Francisco's Geary Street and surrounded an innocent black man, Kevin Shea was the only one who tried to stop them. He failed, and now, thanks to a deceptive news photo taken during the melee, he is wanted for the murder himself-and the real culprits have threatened his life if he says a word.

As riots rage and politicians posture, Lieutenant Abe Glitsky finds himself under pressure to bring Shea in at all costs. And as respect for the law crumbles-even among those sworn to uphold it-true justice is the only thing that can prevent the death of another innocent man.

From the Inside Flap:

A 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...

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. San Francisco: An ideal American city, modern and enlightened. Or is it? When an innocent black man is lynched by a group of whites bent on a kind of twisted justice, Kevin Shea is wrongly identified as the mob s ringleader. Riots erupt all over the city, and he goes into hiding. Hunted, hounded, and nearly destroyed for an act he never committed, Shea becomes a lightning rod for the misplaced passions of a community. He could emerge from his self-imposed exile, but he might not survive long enough to clear his name. Abe Glitsky, returning from his appearance in Lescroart s earlier novels, is San Francisco s Chief of Homicide. Half-black and half-Jewish, raising three sons on his own, struggling to work and live by the book, Glitsky is troubled by the powerful and complex emotions raised by this case, and ultimately haunted by its repercussions. His ex-lover Loretta Wager -- now a Senator and out to excoriate Shea -- has an electrifying effect on his struggle to do the right thing.With the storytelling ability that has made him a major bestselling author, John Lescroart has written the thinking man s legal thriller -- richly satisfying, * heart-stopping, ** and a sophisticated, powerful, resonant read.* Kirkus (starred review)** Library Journal (starred review).
