Overview

Prosecutor Dani Fox finds herself amidst warring crime families in the aftermath of a murdered Mafia capo's daughter.

Drawing from her own past as a dynamic, hard-charging district attorney and judge, Emmy award winner Jeanine Pirro's page-turner is ripped from the headlines, full of gripping details, authentic thrills, and suspenseful realism that can only come from a courtroom litigator who's been in the trenches.

Prosecutor Dani Fox has handled some gruesome homicide cases, but her investigation into the brutal murder of a local Mafia capo's daughter goes from tricky to downright dangerous. Although the victim has ties to the New Jersey Mafia, she was also secretly engaged in an affair with someone from a rival New York crime family. As if squaring off against two powerful crime families weren't enough, Dani suspects that the murder is more than a simple crime of passion, and getting to the bottom of this grisly homicide puts Dani and her long-term boyfriend, Will, in harm's way. Clever Fox has you rooting for Dani in this deadly fight between the ace prosecutor and an elusive and dangerous killer.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Pirro’s wickedly good sequel to 2012’s Sly Fox, which introduced feisty A.D.A. Dani Fox, highlights the political jockeying and rampant sexism of the Westchester County, N.Y., police department in 1980. When the tortured and mutilated body of Isabella Ricci is found in an uninhabited apartment, the case appears open and shut to Fox and her wisecracking but supportive partner, Det. Tommy O’Brien. Ricci was the daughter of a major Mafia family, and a senior member of a rival family was identified entering and leaving the apartment at the time of her death. But what about Ricci’s bitterly estranged husband? And who is the young man who was so relentlessly and aggressively stalking Ricci? Fox must also cope with bitter departmental rivalries and with total hostility between the local police and the FBI. An adroit plot, memorable characters, and some romantic twists make for satisfying reading. Agent: David Vigliano, Vigliano Associates. (July)
Kirkus Reviews
The only female Assistant District Attorney in a men's world may be getting set up as a scapegoat. New Year's Eve 1979. Dani Fox is in New York City with her boyfriend, reporter Will Harris, when she's called to examine the badly mutilated body of a young woman in Westchester County. The superintendent of the building identifies the victim as Vicky and reports that she meets someone who arrives in a limo several times a week and was last visited by someone with a scar on his face. The apartment was rented by the law firm of Gallo & Conti, whose only client is the facially scarred Mafia boss Nicholas Persico, aka The Butcher. Dani's politically savvy boss gives her the case, much to the dismay of a colleague who specializes in the mob but is way too friendly with obnoxious FBI agent Jack Langhorn. Working with Langhorn is charming, ambitious agent Walter Coyle, whose team has been following Persico. Coyle identifies Persico as the man who spent several hours with Vicky, who turns out to have been the daughter of a New Jersey boss whose mob family has been locking horns with Persico over the lucrative refuse business. Everyone is eager to arrest Persico for the murder, but Dani has a gut feeling that he's not the killer. Meantime, Dani's affair with Will is roiled by conflicts involving his reporting on the sensitive case and his jealousy over Coyle, who's romantically pursuing Dani. It will take help from the FBI profiler unit to solve a case in which only her pal Detective O'Brien has Dani's back. The latest from Pirro (Sly Fox, 2012, etc.), a judge and analyst with her own show on the Fox News Channel, showcases her knowledge. The writing may be slightly dry, but she provides lots of local color and insider dope.

Clever Fox is a real page turner. Jeanine Pirro weaves an excellent tale that keeps the reader engaged. I headed to put the book down and go to sleep at night. Jeanine Pirro experience as a judge and prosecutor gives the reader a real good feel for the politics of the District Attorney's Office. I really cared about her characters and was rooting for Miss Fox in the end. I hope Jeanine Pirro continues to write. This is a series I will follow. I can't wait for the next installment.
