Sly Fox has everything including some sizzling hot sex, an OMG moment for this reader! I mean she's a JudgeLOL
If you haven't read it you need to add it to your must read book list. I can't wait for the next in the series of Sly Fox! Seriously, I'm waiting....
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.
Reviews Of Unusual Size!
This book is a semi-autobiographical novel introducing Dani Fox a vivacious and ambitious female district attorney, who actually is Jeanine Pirro's alter-ego. As a result, Pirro's real life experiences are played out in the story and the reader is given insight into what really actually happens behind the scenes in the courts.
Dani Fox, who starts out a little naïve and makes some mistakes, is eventually given some solid advice and assistance from a senior homicide detective who becomes her "pseudo-partner" as Dani Fox takes on the system to see that justice prevails. However, not without controversy, which brings added suspense and drama to the reader. As a murder cop I loved the dynamics and intrigue, which involved the duplicity of the FBI as well as what happens behind the scenes in the courts with some of the legal schemes and trickery of the opposition. The final trial scene is one of the best I have read in many novels. I highly recommend this book.
The theme, wherein the protagonist, as a freshly minted attorney, decides to elbow her way into the old boys domain, and at the same time do something measureable about the heretofore essentailly unrepentant, and unpenalized wife beaters in her county, was a fine place to start. But after "starting" the story never really got up a head of steam. Rather it trudged along, getting from one point to the next, all the while giving off little to no energy. The words were there, but there was no edge. It didn't read exactly like a police report, but it didn't read like a drama either. And what is fiction without a little drama? A little "decoration"...some "color" or at least something more than "just the facts." Of course I am not suggesting letting a story get out of control to the extent that it turns into melodrama either. There are plenty of those kinds of stories available...and they are most always awful. But there is a fine line, and fear not, "Sly Fox" never came close to it. Even though the story had a beginning, middle, and end, it never really got out of low gear. A theme that didn't have to be at all boring, ended up being just that...boring.
Ms. Pirro, I'm hoping unintentionally, dragged out just about every shop-worn sub-plot that's ever been incorporated into a piece of legal fiction. I wont't list them, because
it's not fair to give away the plot. but I have to comment on what has been referred to as a "hot" sex scene. Maybe some readers thought of it that way, but I felt it fell flat. Sex always sells, and I have no issues with using it as a device to wake up the reader.Read more ›

I really didn't expect to like this book, as I had only seen Judge Pirro on Fox news. However, it was very well written with humor thrown in. Worth reading!Published 1 month ago by Gloria P.

The story is very interesting, but the writing is only fair (but I'll give her a break - it's her first book), and the sex is gratuitous and doesn't add a thing. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Luvstaread
