A Solid Legal Thriller Debut

Being a female Assistant District Attorney in New York in 1976 is not easy. Especially if you're like Dani Fox - a young, pretty A.D.A. that just so happens to think that abusing and/or killing your wife is wrong and aims to do something about it!

Being a female Assistant District Attorney in New York in 1976 is not easy. Especially if you're like Dani Fox - a young, pretty A.D.A. that just so happens to think that abusing and/or killing your wife is wrong and aims to do something about it!

Sly Fox, a semi-autobiographical novel from Judge Jeanine Pirro has a very appealing lead in Dani Fox. Ambitious, feisty and a little naive. O'Brien, the semi-reluctant old-dog homicide detective that helps Dani is also a great character, with shades of Harry Bosch.

Occasionally Sly Fox feels a little too autobiographical and the bad guys are sort of one-note. And I wish the setting had been described more vibrantly. I never really felt immersed in the seventies.

Apparently, Pirro is a judge and TV personality of some celebrity, but I had been unaware of her until asked to review the novel. Pirro, aided by author Pete Earley, has written a compelling and surprisingly enjoyable legal thriller. I wish the era had been utilized for more than its attitudes towards domestic violence, but there were enough twists and well-written courtroom showdowns that I look forward to Pirra's next Dani Fox novel.

4/5

Yuck! This is the worst nook book I have ever unfortunately bought. The characters are so poorly developed. Dani Fox is perfect in every way All the male characters are bigoted sexist pigs. They are willing to cut corners to get things done. Before you get the wrong idea, I am a 60+ woman. There is nothing here to hold my interest. Obviously Dani is Ms Piro's idealized version of herself. I honestly don't know if I will be able to force myself through this to the end.

    Fast paced

    A good read! Dani Fox is an admirable female prosecutor who has to prove herself in a 1970's good ol boy network.

    I admire Judge Pirro; however, in this book she casts all her male protagonists as being mysogynistic. Surely her career hasn't found that to be so. Otherwise, the story was light and ok.

    Authentic D.A. background

    The author knows the D.A. setting inside out which adds to the interest.
