Listen Up! An Audio Interview with Featured Author Allison Leotta
April 18, 2016
by Larry Matthews
New York Times best-selling author Allison Leotta has been called the “female John Grishman.” (She half-jokingly says she would prefer that Grisham be called the “male Allison Leotta.”) And if that’s not praise enough, her writing also has been called “as real as it gets” by USA Today.
Allison is a former federal prosecutor in Washington, D.C., where she headed the sex crimes unit. Her thrillers are based on her experiences prosecuting terrible crimes committed against women and children. She also is a contributor to the Huffington Post, where she reality-checks TV crime dramas like “Law & Order: SVU.”
“The Last Good Girl,” which is the latest in Allison’s series, focuses on a topic straight out of today’s headlines: campus rape. A young woman disappears. She had an acquaintance whose fraternity was known as “the rape factory.”
GBF committee member Larry Matthews recently spoke to Allison.
