Alex Cross's Trial

By James Patterson

Not what I expected but I really liked it.

It is a look back at the main characters great great grandfather Abraham Cross. Living in south Mississippi in the early 1900s. Roosevelt sends an attorney down to see what is actually the sentiment is on racial relations in the south. It goes through all the injustices and absolute prejudices that have happen at the hands of whites.

It is written in the Patterson style, short quick chapters, as well as sentences. A mystery wrap in the dram of hangings, love and the courtroom. Not bad. Somewhat educational.
