Meet Dani Fox - an ambitious 25 year old assistant district attorney who wants nothing more than to bring the bad guys (especially abusers!) to justice. She even has a pet pig named Wilbur. (Be still my heart!) Set in Westchester, New York back in 1976, Dani must deal with trying to fight her way through a male dominated world, emotionally challenging crime scenes and uncooperative colleagues while facing threats to both her and Wilbur's safety. Starting the country's first domestic violence unit in a shifting legal landscape, she must find allies where she can, especially when one simple case turns out to be not so simple. Will she trust the right person, and bring justice to those who deserve it?
The author is/was a lawyer, assistant district attorney, district attorney and a judge, so if anyone is qualified to write this kind of book, she certainly is! Dani Fox comes across as almost her other personality, with the storyline woven so well with experiences that have happened to the author. In a field where we don't tend to like people (ahem, lawyers!), Dani's character is definitely likable. I found Sly Fox to be a fast page turner, and I'm hoping we'll get to read more about Dani Fox in future books. If you love legal thrillers, I think you'll definitely enjoy this one too!
