For fans of Lisa Scottoline and Law and Order: SVU, former
federal sex-crimes prosecutor Allison Leottaâ€™s novel
explores the intersection of sex and power as Anna Curtis
investigates the murder of one of DCâ€™s highest-paid escorts.
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 cityâ€™s
highest-paid escorts. And the balcony belongs to
Washingtonâ€™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 relationshipâ€”if it doesnâ€™t destroy
it first. And the further Annaâ€™s investigation takes her,
the larger the target on her own back.
From the secret social clubs where Washingtonâ€™s most
powerful men escape from public view to the asphalt â€śtrackâ€ť
where the cityâ€™s most vulnerable women work the streets,
Discretion is a gripping exploration of sex, power, and the
secrets we all keep.
