K. Mohana Lakshmi and Dr.B. Thavaseelan

This paper examines transformation mood of the humans from ordinary persona to peculiar behaviour through the queen of crime novelist PD JAMES murderer characters. A Certain Justice is an Adam Dalgliesh novel by P. D. James, published in 1997. A three-episode 1998 TV mini-series was made based upon the novel. The book also explores the psyche of a pathological criminal. As I felt that there's an intertwine between the emotions and behaviour of the people. When we're top in emotions, we received to be conscious. We might also have a intimidation to lose our mood and devote mistake or misbehave. This is quite commonplace behaviour of human beings. Here, we have analysed and suggested few points to convalesce in the belief of Sigmund Freud through his defense mechanism of Repression emotions. I discussed in detail about how the past hidden abusement emotions will dominate the persons to commit crimes and also for a violent behaviour. Finally, I suggested few points to recover from it.
