The year is 1906, and America is segregated. Hatred and discrimination plague the streets, the classroom, and the courts. But in Washington, DC, Ben Corbett, a smart and courageous lawyer, makes it his mission to confront injustice at every turn. He represents those who nobody else dares defend, merely because of the color of their skin. When President Roosevelt, under whom Ben served in the Spanish-American war, asks Ben to investigate rumors of the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan in his home town in Mississippi, he cannot refuse. The details of Ben's harrowing story-and his experiences with a remarkable man named Abraham Cross-were passed from generation to generation, until they were finally recounted to Alex Cross by his grandmother, Nana Mama.

"James Patterson returns to his most popular character, Detective Alex Cross, in this mysterious new thriller, which has Cross relating the tale of his grandfather's struggle for survival against the KKK in the South to his children in the form of a novel. Narrator Dylan Baker is the optimal choice to bring this story to life and never disappoints. His pitch-perfect dialect is a marvel filled with subtleties and nuances that take the story to a whole new level. Baker has the capacity to speak directly to each individual listener while still managing to appeal to his audience as a whole with a tremendous stage presence that will have listeners enthralled for hours.
