Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

In The Green Line, Abby Donovan's decade-long dream of partnership at her prestigious Chicago law firm is just months from fruition. But after a late-night train mishap drops her into a world of drugs, gangs, murder, and corruption, everything changes. 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, E.C. Diskin, a former Chicago attorney, takes us on a fast-paced thrill ride with a believable and flawed heroine. Readers 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 turning pages late into the night in this riveting new thriller while shining light on a little-known, often-used, and widely-abused legal maneuver.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The Green Line 29 juin 2016
Par Patrick McGuire - Publié sur Amazon.com

I originally read this because I am familiar the with the Green Line and all the colored lines of Chicago. I thought it would be an opportunity to read about the action happening in places I have been and know. The beginning is very suspenseful and had lured me in to find out where this going. It is about a young female lawyer in a large firm who accidentally gets on the green line and gets off in the south side of Chicago where a gal or anyone would not want to be on a winter night. She happens onto a murder and drug scene and spends the rest of the story trying elude the killer who thinks she can identify him. Then it turns out she cannot identify him but she pursues the incident because the person who helped her out of the mess is murdered. Then there is the back and forth between e her and the murderer with an undercover cop who appears on the scene. The ending was much too drawn out for my sake as the author seems to be carrying the book on and on for no apparent reason. Until the ending there was plenty of drama while the reader is wondering about the decisions the young gal lawyer is making.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not very compelling. 24 mai 2016
Par Barrett Buss - Publié sur Amazon.com

I wanted to like this book. I live next town over from the author and she had been favorably brought up in a curmudgeonly blog about a bar in Old Town.
What I can say that was good - the plot picks up and the action is not ALWAYS predictable
What I disliked - I felt that 90% of the people who weren't upper class and white were poorly written and mostly cliche. The bad guys (I'll refrain from identifying who they are) were thinly drawn and we don't REALLY get a feel for why the big bad is the way he is. Also, the law firm drama was unconvincing, but I once worked in back-office support for a big law firm so it may come off more real to others.
The West Side of Chicago in particular felt like a privileged suburban white person's take.
I was disappointed.

While most likely classified as a mystery thriller, using civil forfeiture and police corruption as central themes certainly makes this a timely topic.

Overall I liked the book. Well written, easy to read. However, the main character, Donavan, seemed shallow and clueless. Anyone employed as a lawyer would hopefully have more common sense. Her vulnerability was overplayed.

The villain, Callahan, was also too extreme. Most sociopaths are not so obvious.

Will be interesting to see if the author continues this group of characters. Three lawyers and an undercover cop.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Exciting legal thriller... 30 mai 2013

The Green Line is a fast paced, engaging and smart legal thriller. E.C. Diskin gives the legal issues woven through the story their proper due while at the same time writing an exciting and suspenseful story. Kept me up past midnight last night so I could finish it. As an attorney, wife and mother of two, a book has to be pretty great to keep me up past my bedtime.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Suspenseful 22 octobre 2014

The Green Line kept me reading. The main character, Abby Donovan, is very likable and most of her emotions and personality traits are very plausible. While some of the other characters are a stretch, and some of the events are a little too coincidental (most notably the ending), nothing was ridiculous or impossible. However, I don't want to dwell on the negative's because there weren't many. On the other hand there is much to praise in this book. The writing is excellent; the characters are very well drawn; the location seems very realistic, although I am not familiar with Chicago. The story line is, sadly, also plausible. I was glad to read Ms. Diskin's statement at the end of the book that she has no doubt that the majority of police officers are honest and upright. In this book, many of them are not to be trusted. Recently I saw Gone Girl and despite the superb acting, I was not impressed. This book would make as good, if not better, cinema. What I liked best, is that, as I read, there were many red herrings. For me, wondering if particular characters were who they said they were or part of the threat to Abby, was more suspenseful than the action itself. And despite a number of murders and threatening situations, there was very little gore.
