The Professor by Robert Bailey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading The Professor. I always enjoyed John Grisham, so diving into a Court Room style book series, sounded fun and interesting.
I liked Tom McMurtrie (The Professor) instantly. He is a very real character, facing real issues and dealing with getting knocked down and trying to find his way back up. While Rick Drake is just starting to find his way in life. Their own personal history, clouds their professional lives yet, it has brought them together to take on the greed of one man.
The female characters in this weren’t two dimensional, though I would’ve loved to see Dawn take on Tyler, but maybe in the next book. He beautifully showed symmetry, while contrasting how the two star witnesses to the case handled themselves under pressure, and what they were willing to do for their kids.
I’m looking forward to the next book (already downloaded on my Kindle). Especially as it’s about Bo – who out of all the side characters was the one I wanted to get to know.
