A Certain Justice

     P. D. James. A Certain Justice (1997) A murder in Chambers, office politics and rivalries, past evils and desires for present revenges, quite ordinary desires for security and love, and children loved too much or not loved enough make up this typically complex mix of character study and police procedural. One murder is solved, the one that prompted it will never be prosecuted because there will never be enough evidence to warrant laying a charge. In this late Adam Dalgleish P D James allows herself room to meditate on the nature of evil, and our inability to achieve more than a limited justice. I'm a fan, so I rate this ****
