Inhaltsangabe: "Imagine one of the best episodes of the TV series "Law and Order: SVU," but set in Washington, DC...Allison Leotta takes readers on a journey inside the elite of Washington and the world of escort services" (Associated Press). When a beautiful young woman plummets to her death from the balcony of the US Capitol, Assistant US Attorney Anna Curtis is summoned to the scene. The victim is one of the city's highest-paid escorts. And the balcony belongs to Washington's sole representative to Congress, the most powerful figure in city politics. For Anna, the high-profile case is an opportunity. But as the political stakes rise, she realizes that a single mistake could end her career. At the same time, her budding romance with the chief homicide prosecutor is at a crossroads. Determined to gain respect in the office, Anna wants to keep their relationship a secret. But the mounting pressure and media attention that come with this case will inevitably expose their relationship--if it doesn't destroy it first. And the further Anna's investigation takes her, the larger the target on her own back. From the secret social clubs where Washington's most powerful men escape from public view to the asphalt "track" where the city's most vulnerable women work the streets, "Discretion "is a gripping exploration of sex, power, and the secrets we all keep.

Rezension: ""Discretion" is a first-rate thriller. Leotta nails the trifecta of fiction: plot, pace and character. Ranks right up there with the wonderful Linda Fairstein." --David Baldacci



"Allison Leotta's "Discretion" is the best legal thriller I've read this year, beautifully crafted and frighteningly real.

If you're a fan of Grisham or Richard North Patterson, you simply have to buy this novel." --Douglas Preston, #1 bestselling co-author of "The Monster of Florence "and" Cold Vengeance

"

""Discretion "is a terrific read. Slick, sexy, and very smart. Allison Leotta is a master at creating tension and then mercilessly tightening it. This is the kind of book I love to read, crafted by a wonderfully imaginative writer, who really knows what she is talking about. Allison Leotta is headed to the top of the heap." --Michael Palmer, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Oath of Office

"

""Discretion" is full of treachery and betrayal, but it's the characters who rule these pages. Allison Leotta expertly ratchets up the suspense and brings to life a fictional world that is cutting-edge current." --Steve Berry



"Fantastic! Smart, gritty, and fast-paced--"Discretion" is everything a great thriller should be. I'm a Leotta fan for life." --Allison Brennan, author of "The Prey
