This past week I spent three days in Philadelphia for the jury selection process for a federal trial—yes, that’s right, three days on jury selection, and we’re still not done! The wheels of justice turn exceedingly slowly (if I may adjust the quote to fit the circumstances).
My trips in and out of Philadelphia via Amtrak did give me an opportunity to do a little fact-checking for my third book, which has a scene that takes place at 30th Street Station. I’ve provided the current draft of that scene below. Take a look and see if you can tell where the error is—and maybe you’ll identify some other errors I’m not aware of! Post your comments here!
3/16/16 I got several good guesses as to the error in the scene, but not the one I was thinking of ... I describe there being a line of cabs outside the station, but not the line of customers that would be waiting for them! If Patrick and Holly ran out of 30th Street Station and jumped in the first cab without a little negotiating with the people in the line they were jumping, it would probably have quite a different outcome. : )
