Alex Cross's Trial Chapter 57

By James Patterson and Richard DiLallo

Chapter 57

  • On the carriage ride home, Elizabeth shares that she had a wonderful time, and Ben's all ditto, girl.
  • He really did love every minute of it.
  • Suddenly, Elizabeth gets a little sad. She wishes she could share this with Richard and feel the way about him that she does about Ben.
  • Instead of responding, Ben is silent—he knows he could tell her about his marriage woes, but that wouldn't be right.
  • When they get to her house, she kisses him goodbye, this time on the lips.
  • Even though it's only for a few seconds, that kiss makes Ben see fireworks.
  • She invites him in, and he definitely wants to join her, but he knows he shouldn't, so instead he goes home to Maybelle's and feels lonely.
