I thought this was part of the Alex Cross books, as it turns out it's Alex Cross telling an old family story. This book tell a great story of oppression and racism the way the history books can not. I could not put this book down. A MUST READ!!

I think the title is deceiving. You expect it to be part of the Alex Cross books but it is not. I found it quite boring. Not a mystery which you would expect from the title. Seems as though Patterson is willing to add his name to a book and grab the royalties that his name brings and this author decided to use his famous character's name.
