Race riots ... in San Francisco?
I love all of John Lescroart's novels. This one begins with an unlikely premise: race riots in perhaps the most tolerant and diverse city on the planet. Having lived in San Francisco for many years, I would say that such a thing probably would never happen. Yet John Lescroart writes so well that we find ourselves believing the scenario, given the concatenation of circumstances Lescroart postulates. Like all Lescroart's novels, "A Certain Justice" has a complex, intricate plot, involving many well developed characters and entertaining dialogue. Like his literary colleagues Connelly, McBain, Wambaugh, and Ellroy, Lescroart understands police procedure and police banter, lending verisimilitude to his stories. On top of all that, Lescroart also knows the machinations going on in City Hall, and how legal finagling works. With all that insight and talent, it should surprise no one that Lescroart can pull off an unlikely premise like race riots in San Francisco. Then, masterful David Colacci comes along and provides us with a peerless reading of Lescroart's audiobooks. If you love good writing, good narration, and plots that combine police procedure, legal thrills, and human interest, buy this audiobook. I have only one caveat to offer: I recommend reading Lescroart's novels in chronological order; and "Guilt" actually comes before "A Certain Justice," despite the copyright dates. "A Certain Justice" will make more sense if you listen to "Guilt" first.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
This could be a very good book but the monotone, lifeless narrator has made it a story I can not get excited to listen to.
What didn’t you like about David Colacci’s performance?
