The new installment of the Alex Cross series "Alex Cross's Trial" is another hit for James Patterson. Some may even consider it a recovery from his summer book "Swimsuit." It is filled with a lot of issues of interest, focusing mostly on race in the South. If you think our government is ridiculous now, just imagine what it would be like to live in 1906 (which is the time period this book is written in).
You all should be aware that the title is a bit deceiving. It is not really about Alex Cross, but Abraham Cross, one of his ancestors and also lawyer Ben Corbett. Corbett fights a case for the Cross family. It is quite intriguing.
How ironic that we have a black president when this book comes out. It just goes to show you how we can evolve as a country.
