Revision of Justice

Revision of Justice - John Morgan Wilson Benjamin Justice series second novel. Approximately a year after the events of Simple Justice, we find Benjamin Justice still the outsider, still struggling with his inner demons. Booze, guilt, self pity, a little depression. Alexandra Templeton, the rookie journalist, now a journalist with a name and some pull, is taping Justice for some help on an article she's writing for a LA magazine about Hollywood's business : the movie. More specifically the writing of movies. This second novel in the series is still a dark, angsty ride. But Justice finds a road to some redemption for his guilt. The plot does use the Hollywood writers paranoia, delusion and big ego nicely, you get some interesting description of life in West Hollywood and a cop that's a lot more than the sum of his dysfunctional parts. I liked it. Looking forward to "Justice at risk" to get here some time this month.
