I kept waiting for the connection to Alex Cross. Some characters had the last name of Cross, but I never did figure out why this book was titled Alex Cross's Trial. The book was slow and verbose. I felt like the author was trying to get to certain word count level.
Hmmm. Not sure how to review this without spoiling it. It was OK, but just OK. The author has potential, but this one was just a little off for me. I need to "read" a story that's believable. There are soooo many depressing scenes, too much sexual tension, frustration and flirting. And why would you have a story with a Hal and an Al. I kept having to think which one was the father and which one was the son. I'll stop now, because all my other comments would spoil it. I did enjoy the last hour and half of the book.
Sorry but I purchased this book based on the good reviews. I can't take listening to it anymore. I'm three and a half hours in. The narrator is soooo boring. The subject matter is an interesting one and I'd give it another try, but in print the next time.
It starts out slow, but honestly I would sit in parking lots and in my driveway at home to keep listening. The story captured me and surprised me.
Good but in typical Dan Brown fashion the ending falls flat.
If you like the Dragon Tatoo, you'll love this one. I usually only listen to books during my commute to and from work, but I couldn't stop listening. It is long and verbose (like Dragon Tatoo) but so much better. Put me on the Pre-Order for Hornets Nest.
Jane Spring kept me laughing. It was predictable and fun. SAgreat first listen. It made my commute seem so much shorter.
