“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 scores big again with Discretion, her top-notch follow up to Law Of Attraction. Smart and sexy, Discretion showcases Leotta’s rock-solid plotting as well as another star turn for her protagonist, Assistant U.S. Attorney Anna Curtis. If you liked Law Of Attraction—and who didn’t?—you’ll love this one!” —John Lescroart
“Allison Leotta’s Discretion is the best legal thriller I’ve read this year, beautifully crafted and frighteningly real. Leotta knows her stuff cold and will bring you into a world of big money, corruption, high-end prostitution and murder. 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 fresh, fast, and addictive, and Allison Leotta's experience as a federal sex-crimes prosecutor shines through on every page. The result is a realistic legal thriller that's as fun to read as it is fascinating.” —Lisa Scottoline, bestselling author of Come Home
“Allison Leotta is quickly making her place at the table of D.C.’s finest crime and legal thriller novelists. She’s an assured and authentic voice, and a highly entertaining storyteller. Discretion is another winner from this talented writer.” —George Pelecanos
“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
“Assistant U.S. Attorney Anna Curtis and FBI agent Samantha Randazzo are the dynamic duo who energize Discretion, a fast, entertaining thriller that centers on the murder of a high class call girl in the office of a United States Congressman.” —Phillip Margolin, New York Times bestselling author of Capitol Murder
"Allison Leotta is by far one of finest new thriller writers today. Discretion will have you on the edge of your seat turning page after page, chockfull of twists and turns. The best thriller I've read this year." –Andrew Gulli, editor of the Strand Magazine and No Rest For The Dead
“Sex and politics collide in Discretion, an intriguing new thriller from Allison Leotta. Leotta, a federal former prosecutor, writes with authority and authenticity. Imagine one of the best episodes of the TV series Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, but set in Washington, D.C., instead of New York City. Besides the realistic feel of the courtroom machinations, Leotta also takes readers on a journey inside the elite of Washington and the world of escort services.” --Associated Press

African-American Chief Homicide Prosecutor, Jack Bailey, is helped in the investigation not only by the FBI but also by US Attorney Anna Curtis from the DC's sex crime division. Jack and Anna are top operators, but working together could be difficult as they are in the early days of a mixed-race relationship which is not public knowledge.
The political stakes are high and the investigation is immediately hampered by Constitutional legal impediments to searching the Congressman's office. The ramifications to Washington's elite of public knowledge of the clients of the escort service are just as stunning and everyone who might be interviewed about their knowledge of the girl and the service are soon lawyered up to the hilt.
It is always good to find a new author with a new twist on the legal/police procedural genre especially one who knows a lot about the seamy side of power in Washington. Allison Leotta was a federal prosecutor specializing in sex crimes and domestic violence in Washington, DC so brings brings extensive personal experience and background to this story.
Anna Curtis is an interesting character who has featured in an earlier book by Allison Leotta. The last line of the book ensures that we will see her again in Speak of the Devil: A Novel to be released in August 2013.
