One important issue is that not all escort services are created equal. Indeed, some are blatant prostitution fronts, some offer fantasy shows, and with others it depends entirely on the specific escort that arrives at your location - mine fell into the latter category. No two escorts worked in exactly the same manner - everyone was different - and they were all independent. - Vicky

You will never view escort services in the same way again. This is an account that exposes a hidden world that many have preconceived notions about. There is always another side to the story. There has been a war on adult business in Orlando for thirty years now and that war continues today.

In 1992, Vicky Gallas opened escort services in Orlando, Florida. Two years later she became the focus of an intense criminal investigation that resulted in her arrest in late 2001, subsequent jury trial, and acquittal by the jury in 2003. In this hard-hitting memoir, she reveals how racketeering and organized crime charges were brought against her based on proof so flimsy that agents and prosecutors could not get a court order for a wiretap or to search.

For anyone fascinated with the foibles of the US criminal justice system, the sensational Orlando connection, and what can transpire behind the scenes, this is a must-read book. It is a story that you will never forget.

This is a Second Edition and includes various updates throughout. Most aliases have been omitted.

From the Author:

I truly appreciate the people that have read my books and contacted me since the first was published. I have spent much of the last ten to twenty years fighting off one person or another and one group or another. I have some supporters and some enemies. This is to be expected. While I do not want to give my enemies the upper hand of knowing, I am more concerned with leaving my supporters wondering.

My health is failing. The arrest, case, and trial  knocked at least 10 years off of my life. I will argue for the incorrectly vilified and prosecuted escort business operator until that day arrives as is evident if you read the Accused Madam Blog.

About the Author:

Vicky Gallas owned escort services in Orlando for many years. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Modern Social and Economic History and pursued graduate studies in History. A resident of Cape Canaveral, Florida, the author has acted as consultant to defendants facing criminal prosecution in the 'adult business' industry.
