Review & Giveaway: “Alex Cross’s TRIAL” by James Patterson and Richard DiLallo – click here to ENTER @ Luxury Read

Alex Cross’s TRIAL was pretty amazing. Even though this is considered the 15th book in the Alex Cross series, it only fits because Cross “wrote” this book about his relative (Great ^4th Grandfather?) who was pushing for civil rights in 1905. Other than the name Cross on a couple characters and the ‘Foreword’ by Alex Cross, this is a book on one man’s fight to stop racial hatred. I’ve recently been reading several of the Cross novels and I have to say that TRIAL is a cut above the rest. The plot has far fewer and smaller holes than normal and it really makes you feel like you’re in Mississippi in the hot explosive summer of 1905.
Ben Corbett, a lawyer in Washington D.C., is white and willing to honestly defend the poor colored folk. He even does quite a bit of Pro bono work. This of course does not make him a rich lawyer by any means, and his wife is getting a little tired of all his long hours and small financial returns.
