Alex Cross's Trial Chapter 3

By James Patterson and Richard DiLallo

Chapter 3

  • After the recess, the lawyers are supposed to give their closing arguments.
  • Carter Ames goes first; Ben notes that he's very skilled when it comes to playing the jury.
  • Even though he babbles on about "the Kingdom of Truth" and "facts," he doesn't say much aside from the fact that they must convict Gracie.
  • The evidence? She claims Lydia had it coming and that's as good as a confession in Carter's eyes, plus Gracie told the jury that Lydia yelled at her that day, so Gracie had motive.
  • We know that wouldn't hold up in Law and Order, but Ben worries that Carter has won the jury over somehow.
  • Now it's his turn for closing argument.
