Winston Groom, author of Forrest Gump: "The Professor is that rare combination of thrills, chills and heart. Gripping from the first page to the last." Brian Haig (Sean Drummond series): "Legal thrillers shouldn't be this much fun and a new writer shouldn't be this good at crafting a great twisty story. If you enjoy Grisham as much as I do, you're going to love Bob Bailey." William Bernhardt (Ben Kincaid series): "R.N.Bailey is a Southern writer in the great Southern tradition, with a vivid sense of his environment and characters that pop and crackle on the page. This book kept me hooked all the way through." "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.
