Giveaway-Alex Cross's Trial by James Patterson and Richard Dilallo

I have five copies of this book to giveaway. Please leave a comment below with your email address to enter. This contest is open to US and Canada only but no PO Box addresses. Winners will be chosen on May 9.

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 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.

James Patterson is one of the bestselling writers of all time, with more than 170 million copies of his books sold worldwide.

His lifelong work to promote books and reading is reflected in his new Web site,, which helps parents, grandparents, teachers, and librarians find the very best children's books for their kids. He lives in Florida.
