P. D. James's sterling, sensitive Detective Inspector Adam Dalgliesh (Roy Marsden) returns in the queen of crime's latest "murder-in-the-establishment" drama, A Certain Justice.

Commander Adam Dalgliesh (Roy Marsden) is drawn into the inner chambers of the British legal system to investigate the grisly murder of Venetia Aldridge (Penny Downie; The Ice House), an ambitious -- and widely despised -- criminal lawyer. As the list of suspects quickly grows to include several key members of Aldridge's firm, each with an excellent motive for murder, suspicion also falls on Gary Ashe (Ricci Harnett), a murder suspect Venetia recently defended -- successfully -- and who has since taken up with her daughter Octavia (Flora Montgomery; Wuthering Heights). As Dalgliesh probes Venetia's past, a terrible secret about her father emerges and appears to be linked to her death -- as well as to a distinguished member of Chambers.
