The Green Line By E.C. Diskin

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

· Paperback: 332 pages and Kindle
· Publisher: Wells Street Press (May 12, 2013)

There is tension from the beginning of “The Green Line” when young, beautiful, lawyer Abby Donovan makes the mistake of boarding the Green Line instead of the Brown Line and ends up at midnight in the poorest, most crime-ridden part of Chicago.

Much like Sherman McCoy in “Bonfire of the Vanities” who misses his turn on the thruway and gets lost in the South Bronx, Abby finds herself in trouble after finding a dead hooker and gets help from an unlikely source. She runs the gauntlet of corrupt police and prosecutor, an undercover cop, drug dealers and a highly successful property forfeiture scheme.

Carrying heavy guilt, Abby does the best she can against the forces arrayed against her.
Even though the book by Ms E.C. Diskin is the author’s first book, I could barely put the book down and learned enough about forfeiture laws to make my blood boil. This book was started in 2004. Let’s hope the sequel is out soon.
