Publisher's Summary

Law professor Thomas Jackson McMurtrie literally wrote the book on evidence in the state of Alabama. But when a power-hungry colleague uses a recent run-in between McMurtrie and headstrong student Rick Drake to end his career, he is left unsure what to do next.
Meanwhile, a devastating trucking accident in Henshaw, Alabama, leaves a young family dead. Drake, now a fledgling lawyer, takes the case against the freight carrier and soon begins to uncover the truth behind the tragedy that is buried in a tangled web of arson, bribery, and greed. On the eve of the trial and with his case unraveling in the midst of a dangerous cover-up that threatens to silence his star witnesses, Drake realizes that only his estranged mentor, Professor McMurtrie, can help him now.
With everything to lose and only justice to gain, will McMurtrie and Drake overcome bad blood to defeat a ruthless adversary? Can the Professor turn back the clock and recover all that he's lost?

Not Grisham or John Hart - yet oddly absorbing

I use Kindle Unlimited - which is a great way to periodically supplement my Audible addiction when I run out of credits. So, I was able to listen to this through my Kindle Unlimited subscription. This fact made the book enjoyable for me. The narrator is not a favorite, he would fall more under the category of a narrator "work horse." Serviceable, but not my favorite kind of voice.

The story is also just fine. The characters are typical villains or flawed good people - a bit cliché but for some reason (I think due to the Kindle Unlimited deal) I kept listening. I also listened to the sequel which also was a bit cliché.

I gave it four stars because I just was taken up for some reason. Nancy Drew for grown ups. I finished it and if his next book comes through Kindle Unlimited, I will listen to that as well. They are like adult potato chip books. I do not think I would use an Audible credit, however. Take that for what it is worth.

Awful? No, but close.... close.

Forget an editor, did anyone even proof this thing before it went to the printer? For example, a mother thrown free from a wreck is afterword told by doctors that her child hadn't survived. A chapter or so later we're told that the mother... whose moving scene we listened to... also failed to survive the wreck? HUH? That's not a plot problem that's a BLACK HOLE!

Of course if it weren't for those holes there'd be NO surprises in this thing,,, so they do give a listener some sense of the unexpected. Eric Dove does a fine job though in bringing life to this comic book ensemble.

I listened to the end. Why? Now that is the only puzzle about "The Professor".
