Alex Cross passes the family tale of his great-uncle Abraham along to his own children in a novel he's written - a novel called Trial. When President Theodore Roosevelt asks young lawyer Ben Corbett to return to his hometown to investigate rumours of the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan there, he cannot refuse. Arriving in Eudora, Mississippi, Ben meets Abraham Cross and his beautiful daughter, Moody. Ben enlists their help, and the two Crosses introduce him to the hidden side of Eudora. 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.
