Discretion Review


Caroline McBride was a little nervous about her appointment with Congressman Emmett Lionel at the Capital in Washington, D.C. After all, itís not often that a high-end hooker is personally invited to the Congressmanís office, especially to conduct business in her line of work.

When a short time later she ends up falling from his third floor balcony, it doesnít take long for investigators to focus their efforts on D.C.ís most prominent and popular politician as the rest of the city to becomes enthralled by the story.

Anna Curtis an Assistant U.S. Attorney is called to the scene of the crime where she finds evidence that the victim was sexually assaulted and it looks like the fall was not an accident. To add to the stress of handling such a high-profile case is that she is currently living with the chief homicide prosecutor, Jack Baily, and wants to keep that arrangement hidden from the public.

When the investigation gets too hot for certain parties to handle, Jack is removed from the case, their relationship becomes strained to the breaking point, and the head of the escort service is murdered. Now, Annaís life is also in danger. Can she stay alive long enough to solve the case?

Discretion is the second novel by Allison Leotta following her debut Law of Attraction which first introduced us to Anna Curtis. Leotta is a former Washington, D.C. sex-crimes prosecutor and Harvard Law Grad who knows her topic well.

Not only that, but she writes in a way that leads the reader into the depth of the story bringing the characters to life and the situations they find themselves in as real as life itself. Itís easy to get emotionally involved with the main characters and feel the trials and struggles they are experiencing.

Discretion is a cautionary tale whereas Leotta makes no bones about what will happen to women who get involved in the escort business and what it can do to their lives. She also understands the politics that keep good people from performing their jobs and allows bad guys and gals to get away with almost anything, including murder.

This powerful novel delves into the mean streets and secret social clubs that allow the rich and powerful to have too strong a hold on those who are not savvy enough to resist the allure. It is also one riveting read!

A special thank you goes to Simon and Schuster for providing a complimentary copy of this book for our review. If you are interested in either book in this series, they are available at Amazon.com.
