Alex Cross's Trial Chapter 2

By James Patterson and Richard DiLallo

Chapter 2

  • Judge Warren asks everybody to get back to business.
  • The opposing attorney, Carter Ames, continues questioning Gracie.
  • He claims she admitted to murdering Lydia, right there on the stand. Don't believe him? Just ask the court stenographer.
  • Naturally, the stenographer reads her testimony back and has Gracie saying Lydia had it coming—she was mean, bossy, and threatened to fire Gracie the day before her murder.
  • At this, Ben objects; that's not what she meant, and they know it.
  • No one really cares, though. Carter Ames might be twisting Gracie's words, but the Judge doesn't care one bit.
  • He calls a two-hour recess so everyone can grab some grub.
