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.

Narration distracts from the story

Is there anything you would change about this book?

If you can get past the narration, which is very silly and borderline racist when voicing certain characters, the story itself is actually pretty smart and interesting.


What did you like best about this story?

Smartly written. Since the author is an actual lawyer the legal part of the story was convincing.


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

Literally anyone.


Could you see The Green Line being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Perhaps Anna Kendrick as Abby, Shemar Moore as Marcus.

I couldn't listen to this...

Would you try another book from E. C. Diskin and/or Jeff Cummings?

Yes...my 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.
