Author Robert Bailey is a Davidson College graduate who works as a civil defense trial lawyer in his hometown of Huntsville, Alabama. He is the author the McMurtie and Drake Investigation series.
In the latest installment of the series, The Last Trial, former law professor Tom McMurtrie tackles his greatest challenge when his old nemesis, Jack Willistone, is found dead on the banks of the Black Warrior River. Willistone had his share of enemies, but all evidence points to a forgotten, broken woman as the killer. At the urging of the suspect’s desperate fourteen-year-old daughter, McMurtrie agrees to take the case.
But as seasoned as McMurtrie is, even he isn’t prepared for how personal and dangerous this case is going to get. Soon loyalties will be tested and the boundaries of law will be broken as McMurtrie fights to save his legacy—and his client’s life—before the truth is buried forever in the muddy waters of the Black Warrior.
