Publisher Description

Written in the fearless voice of Detective Alex Cross, Alex Cross's Trial is a #1 New York Times bestseller of murder, love, and above all, bravery.

From his grandmother, Alex Cross has heard the story of his great uncle Abraham and his struggles for survival in the era of the Ku Klux Klan. Now, Alex passes the family tale along to his own children in a novel he's written-a novel called Trial.

As a lawyer in turn-of-the-century Washington D.C., Ben Corbett represents the toughest cases. Fighting against oppression and racism, he risks his family and his life in the process. When President Roosevelt asks Ben to return to his home town to investigate rumors of the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan there, he cannot refuse.

When he arrives in Eudora, Mississippi, Ben meets the wise Abraham Cross and his beautiful granddaughter, Moody. Ben enlists their help, and the two Crosses introduce him to the hidden side of the idyllic Southern town. Lynchings have become commonplace and residents of the town's black quarter live in constant fear. Ben aims to break the reign of terror-but the truth of who is really behind it could break his heart. Written in the fearless voice of Detective Alex Cross, Alex Cross's Trial is a gripping story of courage in the face of prejudice and terror.

Alex Cross

Alex Cross’s trial is a great book not the typical Alex Cross but not a bad read. Worth the time to read.

Nothing to do with the series

Very disappointed. I’ve read well over 25 of James Pattersons books and never been anything but 5 star pleased. This one however had absolutely nothing to do with the series and should be a stand alone. If it was a stand alone, I’d probably still say I really didn’t enjoy this one. Kind of sad but I guess there had to be a let down someday.

The struggle was real

Many emotions were triggered as I read about the human struggle in the South. As someone who has lived in the South for all of my 67 years I have witnessed prejudice and inhuman behavior. We as a nation need to learn to love and appreciate all people.
