Audiobook Description:

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 daughter, 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 murder, love, and, above all, bravery.

    This review of the book Alex Cross's Trial, by James Patterson & Richard Dilallo, is by Hans W. & Lindsay.

    With all due respect to Mr. Dilallo, I decided that since James "paid-by-the-chapter" Patterson no longer needs to be the primary author of the Alex Cross books, I no lon... more...

    I needed a little light-hearted break from a couple of intense books I've been reading, and what better than a James Patterson/Alex Cross, right? WRONG!!! It was a good read and kept me up until after 3 a.m., but a light-hearted break it was NOT! Actually, it was a very disturbing book, certainly... more...

    Ok, first off it you are expecting another Alex Cross suspense novel you will be disappointed, because this one isn't. It starts off by telling you that the Cross family has a history of keeping their history alive with oral stories passed down from generation to generation. It the moves into one s... more...

    Another disappointment from Patterson. Although this story starts out as a compelling, though heartwrenching read,the ending once again is slapped together in a rushed and highly implausible finale. The main character gets on a high horse, crusades all around town stirring up the citizens, who have ... more...

    The setting for this book is 1906 in Eudora, Mississippi. The story line does not involve Alex Cross directly, it is presented as the story Alex heard about his great uncle Abraham Cross from his grandmother. As a general rule I enjoy James Patterson novels. The title is an all-out marketing ploy a... more...

    I had some not-so-high expectations for this book, but it failed to meet them. I've read all of the Alex Cross series, except for the latest one (soon to be two). I've found the book series to be getting stale, with unrealistic plots and uninspired writing. So when I saw this book, I wasn't sure ... more...

    I agree with others who said that this is not a novel Alex Cross would write. It is told from the view point of a white lawyer, Ben Corbett. He is sent by President Theodore Roosevelt to Eudora, his own, southern, hometown. There Ben meets a great uncle of Alex (the tie in to the series). He fin... more...

    Alex Cross book #15 in the series

    This novel is not what you would expect in the Alex Cross series. In this addition Alex Cross himself explains that it is now the perfect time to share his favourite stories that Nana Mama frequently recounted about their family history.

    I almost put this one down in favor of the next book when I started reading it. It didn't catch my attention right from the first page, like these books normally do. I like the Cross books because I know the characters and this one has none of the characters in it. Thankfully I persisted and ende... more...

    This was a gripping story about the African American experience in the south at the turn of the century. It was not the whodunit that I was expecting,but it was better for it. I love Patterson's books, and this made me an even bigger fan because of it's honest , hard exposition of the ugly facts of ... more...
