Connected by blood
As a lawyer in turn-of-the-century Washington D.C., Ben
Corbett represents the toughest cases. Fighting against
oppression and racism, he risks his family and his life in
the process. When President Roosevelt asks Ben to return to
his home town to investigate rumors of the resurgence of
the Ku Klux Klan there, he cannot refuse.
United by bravery
When he arrives in Eudora, Mississippi, Ben meets the wise
Abraham Cross and his beautiful granddaughter, 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.
