In his new novel, Trial, veteran writer Richard North Patterson returns to the legal dramas that have been the hallmark of his long career. This propulsive narrative centers around the most incendiary flashpoints of race: voter suppression, discriminatory law enforcement, the political exploitation of racial anxiety, and the frequent failure of our legal system to provide fair trials for Black defendants. The story culiminates in a nationally televised murder case. This is a gripping, frank and deeply felt novel about the complications of love, family, politics and the law.

Richard North Patterson is the best-selling author of 22 previous novels. He’s also written extensive non-fiction, including Fever Swamp, a narrative of the 2016 Presidential campaign derived from his essays and reporting for the Huffington Post. A former trial lawyer, he was the SEC liaison to the Watergate special prosecutor, and has served on the boards of several Washington advocacy groups.

“For all its timely discussion, Trial is first and foremost a novel of irresistible suspense. This is a barnburner of a book whose huge drama, large characters, and elemental conflicts grab you from page one.” –Scott Turow, bestselling author of Presumed Innocent and Suspect
