SEPARATED BY TIME: 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.

CONNECTED BY BLOOD: As a lawyer in Washington, DC, early in the 1900s, 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 hometown 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 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 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.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
