Overview

A Certain Justice by John Lescroart

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...

This story seemed so real. A crowd of drunks causing a riot and the whole story becomes racial. It's very interesting how the politicians get involved and make decisions to look good and get votes. Some big surprises in the ending. I enjoy the same characters in many of Lescroart's books and his writing style.
