It makes sense that people will read this series close. It’s interesting, even exotic in a way. There’s undeniably something romantic to the idea that Lincoln’s big enough to have its very own “ghetto.” The place where you don’t go after dark for fear of being robbed or shot. The place where everything is so very different, there’s no way the “normal Lincolnites” can blend in or feel safe.
There’s only one problem: We don’t have that place here.
