Allison Leotta Kills

Allison Leotta’s newest thriller, A Good Killing, asks the question:

How far would you go to save your sister?

As the eldest sibling in my family, I must admit this grabbed my attention. AGoodKilling-cvr-thumbHow many times did my mother say it was my job to watch over my brother? Even now, I worry about him and know there is little I wouldn’t do to protect him.

Allison perfectly captures the deep bonds and complicated relationship between siblings. Her heroine, Anna Curtis, balances a job as a Federal prosecutor, a romance gone wrong, and a sister in jeopardy who might not be as innocent as she might like. The result? A fascinating page turner and possibly Leotta’s best book yet.

Allison is a master at keeping the thriller thrilling while bringing out the softer side of her characters. Best of all, she uses her own experiences as a former Federal prosecutor to make sure the details are correct. If you’re like me, and inaccuracy drives you nuts, you’ll adore the exceptional factual authenticity of Allison Leotta’s books.

To learn a little bit more about Allison’s books, here is an interview I did with her a while back. In it, she discusses her series and how she came to write it. I hope you’ll enjoy watching.

  1. Hey, Allison! Thanks for joining us today. A Good Killing sounds like another winner. 🙂

  2. Welcome Allison!
    What a creep-tastic title! A GOOD KILLING…and the question ‘how far would you go to save your sister?’ WOW! Makes me pause…glad Diana didn’t make that a ‘Question of the Day!’

    This sounds like an intriguing read and I look forward to curling up with it soon.

  3. Welcome to Kiss and Thrill, Allison. I moderated your RWA workshop with Abby Zidle a few years ago. Loved it! You have a unique background and perspective that really enriches your stories.

  4. Hi Allison! Coincidentally–before I knew you’d be Diana’s guest today–I read your debut novel LAW OF ATTRACTION over the weekend. I really enjoyed it–especially the details I’m sure your career in the prosecutor’s office brought to the story. Can’t wait to try the next two! Thanks for coming by!

  5. Diana, thanks so much for this wonderful article– and all your support!!

  6. I absolutely love your video interviews, Diana. And this one is one of my favorites! I have a Good Killing on my TBR list, but am waiting to read it at the pool this weekend. 🙂

  7. Welcome back, Allison! Your new release sounds fantastic! I love legal thrillers so this is going on top of the TBR pile.

  8. Thanks for joining us Allsion! I’m adding A Good Killing to my TBR pile. And Diana, what a great interview as always. Allison, I’m looking forward to your workshop at CraftFest on mistakes that kill your book. In fact I’m the volunteer for that workshop. Can’t wait to find out how to avoid those killer mistakes. I’m certain I’ve made them all.

Thrill us with your wit...
