Alex Cross's Trial Chapter 26

By James Patterson and Richard DiLallo

Chapter 26

  • Since Ben is too hot to sleep, he figures he'll start his detective work.
  • He begins by reading old newspapers, like the Jackson Courier from in town, and as he reads, he finds some details about a strangulation and hanging that took place in Eudora.
  • The details are similar to the other newspapers he's read, a.k.a. full of contradictions.
  • One witness talks about the hanging being exciting and gruesome, while the police chief claims there was no hanging. Say what?
  • Even Ben's own dad—Judge Corbett—is quoted in the article saying he knows nothing about a hanging.
  • It's clear there's a cover-up, and Ben wants to get to the bottom of it.
