Alex Cross’s Trial By James Patterson And Richard DiLallo

September 5, 2009

Listening to audiobooks is one way you can stay current with your favorite authors without spending hours doing nothing but reading. Many books are now available as audiobooks. It does not matter what genre of books you like you are sure to find ones you will enjoy as an audiobook.
The book of Alex Cross’s Trial is available on audiobook. It was written by the popular author James Patterson, who teamed up with Richard DiLallo while writing the book. The book is narrated by Dylan Baker.

Mr. Baker does a superb job of narrated this book. He is able to use different pitches and tones when different characters are speaking. And is even able to add accents into to voices. His speaking is clear and his words are annunciated so that you will not have any trouble understanding each word that he speak. With the different voices that he uses you would almost think that multiple people are reading the book on the audiotape instead of just one.
The quality of the audio is well good. All the words are very clear and you can not hear any other noises in the background, as you can on other audiobooks. The quality is so clear and precise that you feel like you are actually in the courtroom during the character’s trial.
The story is set in a courtroom in the early 1900s. An African American maid is on trial for the murder of her wealthy employer. The employer was white so there are implications of the racial issues that were going on during this time in history. Upon her own admission the accused stated earlier in the day that the employer needed to be killed, which is why the woman is being accused of committing the crime. The woman makes this statement in open court. Her lawyer tries to get the jury to ignore the statements, however the judge makes it very clear that he obviously believes the woman committed the crime.
This is another one of James Patterson’s masterpieces. Right away the reader, or listener, is drawn into the story. Listening to this story on audiotape will make you feel as though you are back in the early 1900s. And it will make you feel as though you are right in the courtroom watching the trial. The characters appear in your imagination as though they are right in the room with you.
