Judge Jeanine Pirro used her career as a lawyer, assistant district attorney, district attorney and judge to breathe life into her first novel, Sly Fox. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down until I was done. Dani Fox is Judge Jeanine's altar ego, she put some of her real life experiences in the story and gave insight into what actually happens behind the scenes in the courts. This isn't just another crime novel. Sly Fox is written from personal hands on experience which brought added suspense and drama to this reader!

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....

Format: Hardcover
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.

Format: Hardcover
Sly Fox by Jeanine Pirro is an undeniable success because the author has interwoven her unparalleled life experiences from being first female district attorney in a major DA's office through her promotion to Bureau Chief to her assignment as the first female county court judge and then elected as the first female District Attorney in Westchester County. As District Attorney, Jeanine Pirro gained considerable visibility, especially in cases regarding domestic abuse, which is the basis for the novel Sly Fox. I have known Jeanine Pirro for over twenty-five years and have had the honor and pleasure of working with her in my capacity as a homicide and forensic consultant. I can state unequivocally that Judge Jeanine Pirro is all about "Truth and Justice" and that's why this novel is a compelling and enjoyable legal thriller.
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.

Given that I've been a big Pirro fan ever since the OJ trial, I am reluctant to criticize her work. But considering I paid a top drawer price, I have to say I was disappointed.

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.
