Présentation de l'éditeur

Alex Cross tells the incredible story - passed down through the generations - of an ancestor's courageous fight for freedom.



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 early-twentieth-century Washington DC, Ben Corbett represents the toughest cases. Fighting against oppression and racism, he risks his family and his life in the process. When President Theodore Roosevelt asks Ben to return to his hometown to investigate rumours of the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan there, he cannot refuse.



Arriving 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.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 BEWARE--Not really an Alex Cross book 29 août 2009
Par T. Anderson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
In typical Patterson style, this book was a very easy and fast read: the chapters are short, the font is large, and the descriptive text is kept to a minimum. That pretty much sums up the good qualities of the book. Patterson should be ashamed of himself titling this book Alex Cross's Trial. This is clearly a marketing ploy to lure in unsuspecting Alex Cross fans. The first two pages are about Alex Cross and he is not mentioned again in the entire 380 pages. The book is really about lynching in the South in the early 1900s. There aren't any twists and turns in the plot to keep the reader riveted and the conclusion is absolutely non-climatic. A real disappointment.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Is James Patterson even writing these books anymore???? 6 septembre 2009
Par jeff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This will be my last James Patterson book, if for no other reason that I'm pissed that a book with "Alex Cross" in the title IS NOT AN ALEX CROSS BOOK. If this isn't false advertising, I don't know what is. As someone who has read almost everything James Patterson has ever written, it's hard for me to believe that Patterson even had a hand in this one, or in the last one (Cross Country) for that matter. I think Patterson has sold out, and is letting just about anyone stick his name on their book. There are too many GOOD authors out there to keep wasting your money on this guy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Racism fuels the fires of the deep south in 1906. 24 août 2009
Par Cla. Cage - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
It is hard to find authors as popular as James Patterson, and his Alex Cross books are at the epicenter. Let's remove the Patterson name for a moment and take an in-depth look at this newest novel. In 1906, race relations are being threatened; The war has just ended; Equality is still a foreign concept -- especially in the south. Theodore Roosevelt (the President of the USA) has placed an urgent call to Ben Corbett - a prestigious lawyer - summoning him to The White House. The President instructs Corbett to seek the aid of Abraham Cross in his home town of Mississippi, and together, investigate the outbreak of burning and lynching of minorities.

When he does arrive, it doesn't take him long to find Cross whom is being escorted by a beautiful young woman, Moody. Moody is Cross' grand daughter and together they show Corbett the true extent of the hate-filled assaults in a once peaceful town. While it does take Ben Corbett a while to accept the truth, he does finally come to realize just how dire the situation is. I'll stop there so I don't spoil the story for anyone whom has yet to read this brilliant novel. There are so many twists-and turns (the biggest being Abraham Cross - the grandfather of Alex) The racial overtones are done incredibly well, and while it is graphic at times, they do serve a greater purpose and keep the novel on track.

Now let's put the Patterson name back, and this good novel becomes great. Patterson is the master of suspense, intrigue, and lifellike characters that change and evolve the story to a level that only a very few authors can replicate. Do I really need to mention this? I mean seriously, if you don't know how good Patterson is...then that cave you live in must be nice and cozy. I'm joking. This latest novel to grace the Patterson name is an exciting thrill ride, that moves along at breakneck speeds and gives the reader a reason to place Patterson back on top of the genre. Well done. Well done, indeed.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 This Is No Alex Cross Book - It Is A Cash Grab 4 septembre 2009
Par K. Cadigan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I honestly think that James Patterson sold the rights to the name "Alex Cross" for use in the title, and had nothing else to do with the book. Alex Cross is in the book for two pages (which is the prologue I believe), and has nothing else to do with it. With another Alex Cross book coming out in a couple of months, this was no doubt just a cash grab.

Regardless of who wrote the book, it's a poor novel. The writing is choppy, the story is weak, and it just does not grab your interest.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Figure it out already! 4 septembre 2009
Par Bowse - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I like most James Patterson novels, but if you haven't noticed, almost every book that he "writes" now says JAMES PATTERSON with "Unknown Author". What that says to me is that he receives books from unpublished/unknown authors and, for a huge payday, slaps his name on them in huge letters so that they immediately become best sellers. Win-Win for both him and the new author. The losers are the dupes who continue to buy them thinking they are written by Patterson. I guess it's fine if you are entertained but I think it is very underhanded.
