Abby Donovan's decade-long dream of partnership at her prestigious Chicago law firm is just months from fruition. But it’s all about to change because of one misstep.
One step onto a late-night train headed in the wrong direction. Headed into Chicago’s west side, where gangs and violence and drugs fill the streets. Abby is haunted by what and who she’s seen, and the mysterious death of a kind stranger. Though her work suffers, deadlines are missed, and her promotion hangs in the balance, she’s compelled to investigate with the help of an unlikely new friend. But Abby’s investigation jeopardizes more than her career. Someone is watching and he’s not going to let a nosy lawyer expose his scam.
In this engaging debut, Diskin takes readers on a fast-paced thrill ride through the best and worst of Chicago. From the streets of the west side to the estates of the North Shore, Abby Donovan and the unexpected villians of The Green Line will have you turning pages late into the night as they shine light on a little known, often-used, and widely-abused legal maneuver.
