Acts of Contrition

(1986)
A novel by

 
 
Library Journal
When reporter Jennifer Brady decides to do an in-depth story on handsome labor leader Tony Marco, she leans toward the positive. The deeper she delves, the more complex the story becomes and the less she trusts Marco: there is Marco and his best friend, cop Pete Moran, whom he betrayed; violence and corruption in the union; a group of plotting union officials; a high society mistress; and a wife who is a nymphomaniac. The book climaxes with a kidnapping, more betrayal, and a bloody shootout. The author's background touches lend solid texture to a fast-moving narrative that is exciting and occasionally moving.
