Top ten books about justice

"I write novels about justice, a rich and compelling subject because it always involves the great themes - the struggle between right and wrong, good and evil, and love and hate," wrote Lisa Scottoline in 2006 in the prefatory remarks to a list in the Guardian of her top 10 books about justice.

One title on the list:
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie

Dame Agatha's brilliant and innovative mystery - and her first bestseller - celebrates its 80th birthday this year and breaks the rules even as it makes them. For mystery freaks like me, it's the Holy Grail.
Read about all ten titles on Scottoline's list.
