Reviews about A Certain Justice (Adam Dalgliesh Mystery Series #10) (7):
This is a wonderful look at modern English society. Here, PD James's focus on the legal system surrounding murder and grievous harm. The rituals of the Inns of Court, and of barristers preparing their wigs and gowns are used to reveal underlying weaknesses of the legal system.

The judgment of the court, guilty or innocent are two absolute to describe human behavior. The legal system rarely has the means of determining who is innocent or guilty. The court determines only if the evidence is adequate to prove guilt. innocence is on a procedural basis.

As usual, PD James has provided a wonderful sample of British elocution to discuss the problem of murder. The setting in Inns of Court provides a wonderful setting for considering the problems of guilt and innocence.

P.D. James is the only mystery writer whose books I have to read with a dictionary at hand. She's an excellent writer with a great command of the language. I googled her and was surprised to learn that she never went to university -- her father didn't believe in education for girls. I wonder how she learned to write like someone with much more formal education than she actually had?

This is one of the strongest books in her Dalgleish series. The characters are fully imagined. The victim is such a jerk to everyone that it's interesting to figure out which person loathed her enough to do away with her. There's a developed sub-plot, something not often found in mysteries. Although most of the characters are disagreeable and/or somewhat off their rockers, I got interested in them.

The setting is quite detailed and seems realistic, not just verbal wallpaper.

I do wish Dalgleish had just a tiny little bit of a sense of humor. His relentless grimness and sadness in story after story get to be too much -- or too little, depending on how you look at it.
Different is not always good but Ms. James delivers another riveting mystery taking the reader deep into the life of the eventual victim. I enjoyed the story but admit to some anxiety concerning the arrival of AD and his team of detectives. I was ready for his cool temperament to assuage the chaotic personalities of the Court.
This is an excellent and well written book. Characters are introduced long before Adam Daigleish, and I wondered when the mystery going to begin. P.D. James is very good at getting the reader into the setting, and the vocabulary is challenging. There definitely is an opportunity to enrich the reader's intellect. I love the mysteries that are real mysteries but teach you something as well. Please try it. You will be glad you did.
Living in England in the 80's, I happened on a tele drama series, "Cover Her Face", with the soulful, bright and intuitive Inspector Adam Dalgliesh and I had to find not only that book but every book P.D. James wrote and has written since. This book as all her mysteries does not disappoint. She was a true mystery lover's author. So if you are looking for rich characters, flawless descriptive narrations and the surprising twist and turns that all good detective novels should engage read the book and you too will be wanting more and judging other writers of the detective mysteries by this standard.
This story kept my attention. Her characters are well-drawn, with several of them being possible suspects. There are a number of unsavory scenes, but if you've read P.D. James in the past this won't come as a surprise.
She has been one of my favorite mystery writers for decades, but I have to say the ending of this book was unsatisfying. I liked the entire story up to the resolution, so I gave it four stars for the plot and subtracted one because of the ending.
Something a little different in mystery novels... This was really engrossing. The reader spends a lot of time getting to know the first victim. By the time she got killed (about 1/3 of the way into the story), I was more than ready for it to happen. In fact, I have seldom loathed a fictional character more. And surprise, it turns out there were LOTS of fictional characters who loathed her, too, so there were suspects thick on the ground. This wasn't the case in the subsequent crimes that occured.

Characterization is James' strength, not just physical descriptions but motivations, personality and character. Like this inattentive father: "When the children were at home, Harold got on well with them both. He had never found it difficult to get on well with strangers."

She spends a lot of time on physical descriptions of people and of places. Some reviewers complain of this but it didn't bother me. The story takes place almost completely in London, and it's grounded in that city's geography-- the tube stations, the neighborhoods (she calls them villages) the landmarks, the churches. It all adds to feeling that the people, places, and events were real.

The time is also real. This is set before cell phones were prevalent (I read the book in 2015, and this jumped out at me), and it might be a different story line with new technology.

As to the ending, well, it depends on what your requirements are. I would define the ideal mystery ending as the detective solves the crime, the cops arrest the murderer (or in some cases, he's killed in the chase), and murderer's identity is not the obvious suspect. In this case, I would say we get two out of three.
I have read a lot of her books. She always has a great mystery story and I like the main character Adam Dalgiesh. The one problem with her writing is that it takes awhile for the set up of all the people that would have a reason to kill the murdered person. Additionally, she is uses a lot of words in her descriptions. If you are not familiar with English terms, that differ from ours, you might have a little trouble. However, usually the you could figure out from the sentence itself, i.e. lift (elevator), flat (apartment), etc. - there are a number of these in her stories.
