It has been a difficult year for Lewiston attorney Billy Cole. Personal family loss and a battle with alcohol have brought him to the edge of ruin. All seems hopeless.
And then events take over on Lisbon Street, the main drag in a decaying downtown in central Maine, where Billy's law office and the local courthouse are located. A client is charged with murder. A beautiful woman from London comes into his life. And he takes on a custody case involving an Argentine boy that, in the end, offers hope for recovery and redemption.
Lisbon Street is one lawyer's story about real life in the poverty-ridden neighborhoods of an old New England mill town. It is a compelling legal drama of life during a year when everything on Lisbon Street -- and in the world -- has changed forever.
