When he arrives 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.

In a word ... miserable
Generally. I'm not given to writing negative reviews, if I don't like a book ... I figure I've already wasted enough of my time ... but this book has driven me to make an exception. I gave up reading Patterson when his writing started feeling more an exercise in prolific banality than creative genius. I really enjoyed his early work and especially the character, Alex Cross. One more chance I thought ... this is Alex Cross. All I can say is I wish I had my ten bucks back, this was miserable. Patterson cares more about the commercial buck than his writng craft. Too bad he sold himself down such a cheap river.

I hate to leave bad reviews, but it really is that awful. It's a lot like The Magic Treehouse childrens' series, except with extreme violence. Weirdly, the poor narrator reads these harrowing scenes in a chipper, slightly amused voice. There's lot of good audiobooks here, but this is not one of them.
