Separated by time
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.
Connected by blood
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.
United by bravery
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 murder, love, and, above all, bravery.

Oh No!! Followed by Wow, good read!,
I was initially shocked that an Alex Cross book had zero Alex Cross in it. Still it is a Patterson book so I pressed on.
This is about his ancestry, how they were, and where the Cross name began. AND it was done in a very very good read.
So be surprised and enjoy a good read
I Loved It!!
This was a really great read. I love the Alex Cross books and thought hmm I wonder if I'm going to like this one but I was instantly hooked! I had to make myself stop reading because it's such an exciting story that you just have to know what happens next... I would recommend this to all Alex Cross fans!
This novel is a riveting portrayal of life during but one of America's darkest times....the era of the "strangest fruit"
Mr. Cross generates another spellbinding, yet all too real, story of our country's jaded past.
