Alex Cross's Trial Chapter 103

By James Patterson and Richard DiLallo

Chapter 103

  • Getting dressed on a big day is always tough, especially for Jonah when the cards are stacked against him.
  • He decides on a blue suit, white shirt, and red tie—it makes him look patriotic.
  • Opening arguments are today, and he wants his to be memorable.
  • And memorable, it is: Jonah tells the details of the crime, but makes sure to leave out who is Black and who is white.
  • He talks about how men went looking for trouble to teach a kid a lesson, found it, and murdered two people.
  • He purposely doesn't mention race until the very end when he tells the jurors that race has nothing to do with this trial.
  • One juror is so moved that he claps, upsetting the judge.
