The People vs. Alex Cross - James Patterson
Alex Cross has never been on the wrong side of the law-until now.
Charged with gunning down followers of his nemesis Gary Soneji in cold
blood, Cross is being turned into the poster child for trigger-happy
cops who think they're above the law. Cross knows it was self-defense.
But will a jury see it that way?
As Cross fights for his professional life and his freedom, his former
partner John Sampson brings him a gruesome, titillating video tied to
the mysterious disappearances of several young girls. Despite his
suspension from the department, Cross can't say no to Sampson. The
illicit investigation leads them to the darkest corners of the Internet,
where murder is just another form of entertainment.
As the prosecution presents its case, and the nation watches, even those
closest to Cross begin to doubt his innocence. If he can't convince his
own family that he didn't pull the trigger with intent to kill, how can
he hope to persuade a jury? But even with everything on the line, Cross
will do whatever it takes to stop a dangerous criminal...even if he
can't save himself.

MY THOUGHTS: This is the last book of the series or is it? I don't think so. I'm sure there will be more. Alex has been charged with 3 first degree murders. As the prosecution keeps pulling out more evidence, even I was doubting Alex's innocence. But once his lawyer got her turn, she really slapped the prosecutor down a notch. While Alex is on trial, he's also helping his best friend and fellow cop with a case of missing girls. These guys are bad, bad, bad. Does Alex and Sampson find the girls? Does Alex win his court case? Read the book and find out. I give this book 5.....
