Wishlist Wednesday: The Professor, Robert Bailey

Wishlist Wednesday is a weeklies hosted by Pen to Paper.As I have enough wishes when it comes to books I decided to join this weekly and tell you about them. I am obviously curious about the books on your wishlist too so feel free to leave a message.

Thomas Jackson McMurtrie is a living legend scorned. Forty years ago, he gave up a promising career as a trial lawyer to become a law professor at the University of Alabama at the request of his mentor. Alabama football Coach, Paul "Bear" Bryant. Now Tom is forced into retirement, betrayed by both a powerful colleague and his own failing health.
Meanwhile, the young family of one of his oldest friends is killed in a tragic road collision. Believing his career is over, Tom refers the case to a brilliant, yet beleaguered, former student, who begins to uncover the truth behind the tragedy, buried in a tangled web of arson, bribery and greed.
But as the eve of trial approaches, the young attorney's case begins to unravel. In over his head and at the end of his rope, he realizes there's only one man who can help.

This sounds like a very intense read. People being forced to change their lives due to a lot of reasons. Mystery, intrigue and complicated situations. I am so curious about the motivations Thomas had to give up his career. And I want to know what happened and how the trial ends. I hope it is a good puzzle along book too.

Sounds interesting! I don't usually go for legal thrillers, but this sounds like it has a great mystery to figure out. Enjoy!
