You want to know|all about me, don't you?

Well, let's see, now.

The first time I was in love|was June, 1975, in Boca Raton.

Her name was Coty Pierce.

She lived there with her parents|and her little sister Karrie...

And I loved her, too.|I loved them both...

and they were in love with me.

They just didn't know it.

No one did.

I lived with them all that June.

I don't understand.

I lived in the attic.|I was watching.

I loved the expression|on their faces when they slept.

And then I decided|to declare myself...

and show them|how much they loved me.

What happened?

What happened?

Coty was honored.

She kissed me back.

And then Karrie.

And finally that night...

I kissed their mother, too.

Just a little pinprick. There.



Kiss me.

That's it.|Now watch and listen.

Good. Knock it back.|Knock it back.

Good, but you gotta remember...

You gotta keep running.|That's it. That's my boy.

Good. Bring it over.|Right hand. Good.

I don't want you to fall on your|face 'cause you missed that jab.

What am I always telling you?

Power comes from leverage|and technique.

You paying attention?

I gotta go, guys...

so you pair off|and hit the heavy bag.

Three rounds each. Go.

How long has she been inside?

I'm on my way.

Their names are|Edmond and Dianne Wainford...

ages 48 and 42.

An item about 7 years.|No prior complaints.

The neighbors|are saying the usual.

They were divorced,|they were married...

they were separated,|they were reconciled...

or in the process of.

His idea or her idea.|No one has a clue.

All I know is that's Edmond,|and Dianne's in the bedroom.

Whose gun?

Stupid f***ing b*tch!

He had|a .38 Smith&Wesson registered.

Look like a .38 to you?

You want a vest?

I don't think I'll need one.


This is Alex Cross, D.C.P.D.|I need to talk to you. OK?

Dianne, I'm gonna open the door.|All right?

I'm gonna open it now.

Hold it, hold it, hold it.

Please. Please, Dianne.

Look, I'm gonna close this door.

I'm gonna move this chair|and block the door.

This way nobody comes in...

and it stays|between me and you, OK?

Could you take the gun|out of your mouth, please?

Look, it's just as effective|if you put it to your temple.

Just makes it easier to talk.

What sort of policeman are you?

I'm a forensic psychologist.

It's a fancy way of saying...

I'm a guy who walks|into a room like that...

and determines|the hows and whys.

Then you don't need|to hear from me.

No, no, I don't,|but I need for you...

to confirm|a couple of things for me.

For instance, did Edmond|often beat you after he drank?

And the turtleneck|you're wearing...

is that to hide bruises?

Do you often have to hide marks|that he put on your body?

he hit me...

and I swore|it was the last time.

I finally get the nerve|to leave that son of a b*tch...

and then he suckers me back.

You know what I think, Dianne?

I think you did|what you had to do.

The thing now is to figure out|how to finish things off.

The right way, Dianne,|the right way.

Look, is it all right|if I come a little closer?


As I see it, we have to get|photographs of your bruises.

I know at least a half a dozen|top-notch lawyers.

They specialize|in battered women's defenses.

The point is, Dianne,|if you pull the trigger...

no one will ever know|the truth.

Can I have it?


Samp. What are you|doing here? Doughnut raid?

Alex, hold on.|Look, uh, May's inside.


- We got a call from Durham.|- Durham?

Naomi's missing. Come on.

What do you mean "missing"?

They called May this afternoon|from the law school.

She called me.|I called them back.
