The year is 1906, and America is segregated. Hatred and discrimination plague the streets, the classroom, and the courts. But in Washington D.C., Ben Corbett, a smart and courageous lawyer, makes it his mission to confront injustice at every turn. He represents those who nobody else dares defend, merely because of the color of their skin. When President Roosevelt, under whom Ben served in the Spanish-American war, asks Ben to investigate rumors of the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan in his home town in Mississippi, he cannot refuse.
The details of Ben's harrowing story--and his experiences with a remarkable man named Abraham Cross--were passed from generation to generation, until they were finally recounted to Alex Cross by his grandmother, Nana Mama. From the first time hear heard the story, Alex was unable to forget the unimaginable events Ben witnessed in Eudora and pledged to tell it to the world. Alex Cross's Trial is unlike any story Patterson has ever told, but offers the astounding action and breakneck speed of any Alex Cross novel.
Known for helping the 'colors' with their legal needs, lawyer Ben Corbett often takes cases which offer little prestige and often less money. Having served under President Theodore Rosevelt, Ben is called to the White House, where he is given a secret mission by the President. He must travel from his home in Washington D.C. to Eudora, Mississippi, his childhood home, and investigate the rumors of clan risings in the South. What he finds will shock him and the country, threaten his marriage and change his view of the world.
Written in the vocal style of one of James Patterson's most loved characters, Alex Cross, this book takes you back to another time along the steamy Mississippi delta when our country was still two halves trying to be whole. Patterson fans will find Alex Cross' Trial, a must have to add to their collection, making this book one you need to read.
