    I actually loved this deviation from the normal Alex Cross series books The plot was devastating to read about and as a human being seeing that this is how things were handled and discussed about other human beings is shameful and horrendous I think books that talk of this matter are so helpful to humanity It reminds us to be better people My quick and simple overall enlightenin

    This review of the book Alex Cross s Trial, by James Patterson Richard Dilallo, is by Hans W Lindsay With all due respect to Mr Dilallo, I decided that since James paid by the chapter Patterson no longer needs to be the primary author of the Alex Cross books, I no longer need to be the primary reader of the fore mentioned series.Here is what my reader had to say about this book L

    For those of you who are fans of Alex Cross and I am one , this book is a surprise It is not about the Alex Cross we know and love, but about his ancestors.I have mixed feelings about this book it s well written, engaging, and holds you until the end many of the features I look for when choosing a book The characters are memorable.However, the topic the old South 1906 full of hatr

    It took me a very long time to finish reading this novel because of how disturbing it is it really is difficult to get through because of the gruesome detail exercised in regards to, specifically, lynchings, and while it may be true that Patterson s work usually is fairly gruesome, it is a lotdifficult to read something that is based on something that really did happen Every charac

    I ve been meaning to read from the Alex Cross series for awhile now ever since the corresponding movie series came to Netflix , but haven t for reasons So now I have, even though it is a book that is not part of the main timeline.This book takes us back to Alex s ancestor, Abraham, who is not the main character In the early 1900s people of color were free from slavery, but not from

    I have read many, many of James Patterson s books and have enjoyed every one of them However, this book is by far the best book that he has written, and should be read by even those who are not familiar with his books and characters It is a different type of book altogether, and is written from the viewpoint of Alex Cross, his protagonist in so many novels It is also a historical typ

    Not about Alex Cross, just a story of a family member in times of extreme racism.Not for me.

    This book sort of threw me for a loop because it s not about Alex It s about his ancestors Which don t get me wrong, it s not a bad book at all but it s really hard to write out this review.In Alex Cross s Trial, Patterson talks about the old south where Racism is alive and kicking and no one knows what the hell equality means The main character in this book, Ben Corbett, arrives back t

    I really liked this book I enjoy Patterson books in general, but this one, I feel, is one of his better works Patterson and Dilallo keep you on the edge of your seat with events and fully involved in the characters They point out the human frailties of fear and feeling of safety in packs, ego and the use of any means or any one to better ones self image, greed and discrimination and all
