The year is 1906, and America is
segregated. Hatred and discrimination plague the streets, the classroom, and
the courts. But in Washington DC, 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. So when President
Roosevelt, who Ben served under 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 he 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’ Trial is unlike any story
Patterson has ever told, but offers the astounding action and breakneck speed
of any Alex Cross novel.
