Alex Cross's Trial Chapter 40

By James Patterson and Richard DiLallo

Chapter 40

  • Over the next couple of weeks, Ben keeps investigating the lynchings.
  • He figures he has to keep up his cover story, so he also interviews a few candidates for federal judgeships.
  • A couple weeks later, he gets a haircut and runs into Elizabeth outside the barbershop.
  • She's very flirtatious with him, and he worries it could lead to something.
  • When he asks her why she wasn't at L.J. Stringer's dinner party the other night, Elizabeth fesses up. Her hubby, Richard, is too important for that kind of stuff, and L.J. Stringer wouldn't have wanted them there.
  • Everyone thinks Richard will be the next governor since he's already a senator now, and as it turns out, L.J. Stringer is a little jealous (well, at least according to Elizabeth).
  • She doesn't want to leave Eudora, but she knows her husband would love the governor's seat.
  • Ben walks her to the store and she kisses him on the cheek.
