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.

Synopsis:

Detective Alex Cross tells an ancestor's story in this astonishing account of one man's bold pursuit of justice in the face of racism and violence. Unlike any story Patterson has ever told before, this work still offers the astounding breakneck speed of any Alex Cross novel to date.

I really liked this book. I enjoy Patterson books in general, but this one, I feel, is one of his better works. Patterson and Dilallo keep you on the edge of your seat with events and fully involved in the characters. They point out the human frailties of fear and feeling of safety in packs, ego and the use of any means (or any one) to better ones self image, greed and discrimination and all the other things the human animal clearly shows as normal traits. The most dangerous animal walks on two feet. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself, and this book manages to shed a little light in that direction.
