Daily Deals: Sly Fox, The Templeton Twins Have an Idea and The Golden Years
Today Amazon offers Sly Fox: A Dani Fox Novel by Jeanine Pirro just for $1.99
Westchester, New York, 1976–Cocaine abuse is rampant, the county courthouse is a boys’ club, and men are still legally permitted to beat their wives. Enter Dani Fox, the feisty, ambitious twenty-five-year-old assistant district attorney tired of feeling like an outsider and hungry to bring abusers to justice.
Dani confronts emotionally challenging crime scenes and uncooperative colleagues, facing threats to her safety–and even the safety of her pet pig, Wilbur–in order to protect society’s silent victims. Spearheading the country’s first domestic violence unit in a shifting legal landscape, Dani must find allies where she can, especially when she discovers a seemingly simple case has some shocking twists. But who can she trust, and which of her colleagues will she end up battling both in and out of the courtroom?
Drawing from her own past as a dynamic, hard-charging former district attorney, Emmy-winning Judge Jeanine Pirro’s debut 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.
The Templeton Twins Have an Idea: Book One by Jeremy Holmes, Ellis Weiner is the second daily deals from Amazon. The book costs $1.99.
Suppose there were 12-year-old twins, a boy and girl named John and Abigail Templeton. Let’s say John was pragmatic and played the drums, and Abigail was theoretical and solved cryptic crosswords. Now suppose their father was a brilliant, if sometimes confused, inventor. And suppose that another set of twins—adults—named Dean D. Dean and Dan D. Dean, kidnapped the Templeton twins and their ridiculous dog in order to get their father to turn over one of his genius (sort of) inventions. Yes, I said kidnapped. Wouldn’t it be fun to read about that? Oh please. It would so. Luckily for you, this is just the first in a series perfect for boys and girls who are smart, clever, and funny (just like the twins), and enjoy reading adventurous stories (who doesn’t?!).
