Publisher's Summary

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. In this engaging debut, E.C. Diskin, a former Chicago attorney, takes us on a fast-paced thrill ride with a believable and flawed heroine. Listeners will relate to her, fear for her, and get a glimpse inside Chicago’s best and worst. From the roughest streets of the west side to the estates of the North Shore, Abby Donovan and the unexpected villains of The Green Line will keep you listening late into the night as they shine light on a little-known, often-used, and widely-abused legal maneuver.

Well Written Book

This was a well crafted legal thriller that swept me along for a very entertaining ride. The pace cranks up in the second half of the book which I read in one final sitting. Like some other reviewers I also have a background in law and could relate to the big law firm scene and the long all consuming hours of work - although, I hasten to add, that's never been my own path in the law. The main character was very nicely drawn with a depth and believably that helped drive the plot and the growing sense of horror the story evoked as her life begins to crumble around her.

Jeff Cummings was very average with the delivery of the story. He tended to over act each character making them sound cartoonish it was very distracting. When he used his own voice the narration was much better.

I couldn't listen to this...

Would you try another book from E. C. Diskin and/or Jeff Cummings? review is purely on the narration of the audiobook.

Would you be willing to try another book from E. C. Diskin? Why or why not?

Yes...see above.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeff Cummings?

Annoying. If the narrators voice doesn't work for me, I just can't listen.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Green Line?

Needs a different narrarator.
