WOW, WOW, WOW!! This is written in classic Patterson prose and his infamous short chapters. The first book of JP's I ever read was one that was totally different than anything else he has ever written ... The Jester ... I was hooked from page one and I then went in a frenzy and just HAD to have and read every book he has ever written. This book, is like that!!

Although is it a part of his Cross series ... it's not typical ... it takes place back in the early 1900's and it is told to you by Alex Cross telling it from Ben Corbett's first person journal account and it features Cross's relatives. It made me tear up a few times while reading it and it was really very graphic when describing some of the lynching scenes ... it's very sad for me to know that these things actually did happened in our country's past. For a white author writing about a very serious time in black history ... I think he did an awesome job relating it and letting you, the reader, feel it.

If you have never read JP before and you pick this one up ... you WILL be hooked. If you have read JP before ... you WILL NOT be disappointed!!
