In a propulsive narrative that culminates in a nationally televised murder case, Trial explores America’s most incendiary flashpoints of race.
A Black eighteen-year-old voting rights worker, Malcolm Hill, is stopped by a white sheriff’s deputy on a dark country road in rural Georgia. His single mother, Allie, America’s leading voting rights advocate, restlessly awaits his return before police inform her that Malcolm has been arrested for murder. In Washington D.C., the rising, young, white congressman Chase Brevard of Massachusetts is watching the morning news with his girlfriend, only to find his life transformed in a single moment by the appearance of Malcolm’s photograph. Suddenly all three are enveloped in a media firestorm that threatens their lives—especially Malcolm’s.
“A death in the dark, a young life on the line. From the backroads of rural Georgia to the halls of Congress, this riveting novel draws on Richard North Patterson’s years as a trial attorney as well as his insider knowledge of Washington DC. Intricate, compelling, and timely, it may be his best book yet.” –Geraldine Brooks, Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction and New York Times bestselling author of Horse
“It is no overstatement to say that To Kill a Mockingbird for the 21st century has arrived. Trial grapples with the biggest issues of race and justice and does so in a meaningful and engrossing way, page after page. You cannot help being moved by this story and it illuminates the biggest issues we face in our nation today.” –James Stavridis, former supreme Allied Commander of NATO and New York Times bestselling novelist
