Alex Cross's Trial Chapter 12
Advertisement - Guide continues below
- Meg is livid at Ben. How could he just ignore her feelings like this and let some guy named Nate in? Doesn't he hear what she's saying?
- Ben explains that Nate is a friend from his army days, and he knows it must be important if he shows up unannounced like this.
- Nate strolls in as Meg leaves, her feelings hurt.
- And then Nate announces he's here on a mission from the White House.
- Ben is intrigued. (Gee, ya think?) He was feeling a little overwhelmed with the news his wife just dropped, but he's interested in what Nate has to say now.
