Alex Cross's Trial Chapter 39

By James Patterson and Richard DiLallo

Chapter 39

  • 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.
