A CERTAIN JUSTICEIn San Francisco 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 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.

Now, as the trial builds to a crescendo, as a good cop tries to pick up the pieces of his shattered life and a D.A. risks her career, the truth about Mark Dooher is about to explode.…
DAMAGE: The Curtlees are a powerful force in San Francisco, unscrupulous billionaires who’ve lined every important pocket in the Bay Area in pursuit of their own ascent. So when the family’s heir, Ro Curtlee, was convicted of ****** and murder a decade ago, the fallout for those who helped to bring him to justice was swift and uncompromising. The jury foreman was fired from his job and blacklisted in his industry. The lead prosecutor’s dreams of becoming district attorney were dashed. And head homicide detective Abe Glitsky was reassigned to the police department’s payroll office. And then Ro Curtlee’s lawyers won him a retrial, and he was released from jail. Within twenty-four hours, a fire destroys the home of the original trial’s star witness, her abused remains discovered in the ruins. When a second fire claims a participant in the case, Abe is convinced: Ro is out for revenge. But with no hard evidence and a media eager to vilify anyone who challenges Ro, can Abe stop the violence before he finds himself in its crosshairs?
