Alex Cross's Trial Chapter 23

By James Patterson and Richard DiLallo

Chapter 23

  • As Ben walks up the steps to his childhood home, we get some backstory about his dad.
  • He's known as the most honest judge in town, but he's also super conservative.
  • This wouldn't be a problem, except Ben's political views swing the other way—Ben is more progressive, and his dad won't ever let him forget it or stop mocking him.
  • Six years ago when Ben came back for his mom's funeral, his dad threw around insults about being progressive and helping the poor like it was a bad thing.
  • Since then the only communication they've had is during Christmas each year when Ben's dad sends a card. That's it.
