Product description

Review

"Taut, page-turning, and smart, "The Professor" is a legal thriller that will keep readers up late as the twists and turns keep coming. Set in Alabama, it also includes that state's greatest icon, one Coach Bear Bryant. In fact, the Bear gets things going with the energy of an Alabama kickoff to Auburn. Robert Bailey knows his state and he knows his law. He also knows how to write characters that are real, sympathetic, and surprising. If he keeps writing novels this good, he's got quite a literary career before him."
- Homer Hickam, author of Rocket Boys/October Sky, New York Times Number 1 bestseller.
"The Professor is that rare combination of thrills, chills and heart. Gripping from the first page to the last."
-Winston Groom, author of "Forrest Gump"
"Robert Bailey is a thriller writer to reckon with. His debut novel has a tight and twisty plot, vivid characters, and a pleasantly down-home sensibility that will remind some readers of adventures in Grisham-land. Luckily, Robert Bailey is an original, and his skill as a writer makes the Alabama setting all his own. The Professor marks the beginning of a very promising career."
- Mark Childress, author of "Georgia Bottoms" and "Crazy in Alabama
"
Move over, John Grisham. There's a new kid in town, and he's come well armed with a book that grips readers from the first page until the last and leaves them wanting more. "The Professor," a legal thriller by Robert Bailey, will have readers asking, "John who?"
-Loretta Gillepsie, The Decatur Daily
