I am honored to have as my guest blogger Jeanine Pirro, author of the terrific Dani Fox series of legal thrillers. Who better to write about the law than the woman who lives it? Read on to learn more about the book and how you can win your own copy!
From Jeanine Pirro:
I came into law enforcement at a time when women were nearly invisible--not as victims, there were plenty of those--but as prosecutors, lawyers, investigators, advocates and judges. The year was 1978. Entering the courthouse in Westchester County was like entering an all boys club. As a woman in the District Attorney’s Office and then as the first woman District Attorney I was most often the only woman in the room.
I loved this book! Here's my review, as published in Booklist:
This sequel to Sly Fox (2012) finds prosecutor Dani Fox summoned to work on New Year's Eve 1979. The only woman in the Westchester County district attorney's office, she heads up the newly formed Domestic Violence Unit and fights the entrenched old-boy network on a daily basis. A New Jersey Mafia dons daughter is found tortured and murdered, and Fox and her journalist boyfriend, Will, rush to the crime scene, in Yonkers. As Fox and her investigating officer start digging, they find that the dead woman had been having an affair with her father's most hated enemy, head of another crime family. The FBI has an eyewitness agent who can place the don at the scene of the crime, and political pressure becomes unbearable as Fox's boss demands immediate justice. She isn't comfortable with charging a man based on circumstantial evidence, and as witnesses start disappearing, the pressure really heats up. Pirro joins the ranks of fellow prosecutors Linda Fairstein and Marcia Clark in turning out tautly written legal thrillers, and Pirro's expertise shines on every page.
