Super entertaining and twisting story

Williams takes her years of Philly FBI experience and weaves a twisty tale of classic city hall corruption along with personal trauma, emotional challenges and political infighting. Great story.

Great Story From an FBI Insider

Would you listen to Pay to Play again? Why?

Yes. Author knows the inner workings of an investigation, and it is fascinating to see how it really works.

What other book might you compare Pay to Play to and why?

If you like the procedural aspects of Michael Connelly but with a risque edge, you will love Pay to Play.

What does Melissa Reizian Frank bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Superb delivery.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

You are very interested in the main character, and want to race through the book to find out her secret.

Any additional comments?

Author has a fantastic podcast that gives you insight into her writing process, and conducts interviews with retired FBI officers that shows she is a respected former FBI agent who knows the intricate details of how investigations are conducted.
