This is the story of a group of young professsionals who are also political acitivists in the fictional town of Abe's Turn. The novel is actually broken down into seasons and episodes just like your favorite tv crime dramas,yet it is more than just a crime drama. The one difference; that is immediately obvious; is that the law in Abe's Turn is corrupt, and it is left to those few who have the courage to be the balance; to defend those that are caught in the corrupt system.
The book brings up many debatable topics: Is it ever commendable to use power to bring about an end especially if the results will end up helping the innocent? I am sure that this book will prove to be highly controversial by many, but it also forces you to see the way that too much power can, and will corrupt if not given a conscience.
As this book is only the first half of Season 1 I am looking forward to hearing more about the struggles of Ted, Clyde, Michael, Mira and the other characters from Abe's Turn.
