Death Dance

Fairstein, Linda
Alex and the crew investigate a murder at the Met.

...slamming into the the fan casing at about a hundred twenty miles an hour. (pg. 88) -- I couldn't believe a body would accelerate that quickly in so short a distance, but I did the math, and it seems to be correct. Huh.


"Looks like about fifty-five volts of electricity ran up the side of the...manhole cover... More than enough to kill you." (pg.92)
"...Usually it's only twenty or thirty volts, enough to give you a good scare..." (pg. 93) -- Hey, it's the amperage, not the voltage!
