Alex Cross's Trial Chapter 39
Advertisement - Guide continues below
- The next morning, Ben gets some letters in the mail—a note from Elizabeth saying she hopes to see him soon, a dinner invitation from an old pal (L.J. Stringer), and some hate mail.
- He's bummed that he didn't get any letter from his wife and kids. He misses them.
- As he reads the third letter, he wonders whom it's from; there's no name, but a picture inside of a Black man being hanged. Ben's stomach churns just looking at it.
- The note says they know why he's down there—the real reason—and this is what they do to people who help Black people.
- It also warns him to go home now…or else.
