9780099543022: Alex Cross's Trial

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.

From AudioFile:

James Patterson returns to his most popular character, Detective Alex Cross, in this mysterious new thriller, which has Cross relating the tale of his grandfather's struggle for survival against the KKK in the South to his children in the form of a novel. Narrator Dylan Baker is the optimal choice to bring this story to life and never disappoints. His pitch-perfect dialect is a marvel filled with subtleties and nuances that take the story to a whole new level. Baker has the capacity to speak directly to each individual listener while still managing to appeal to his audience as a whole with a tremendous stage presence that will have listeners enthralled for hours.
