A battle-worn lawyer fights for a young man’s life in this criminally enthralling legal thriller.

Teen pop star Brittany Crutcher is found dead in small-town Tennessee. For attorney Bocephus Haynes, it’s just another night in Pulaski. Bo swore off criminal work after his last case, but the beloved singer’s murder demands answers.

The prime suspect is local high school football hero and the victim’s boyfriend, Odell Champagne. However, this fallen athlete is one of Bo’s son’s best friends. Bo knows this young man and does not believe him capable of the crime.

But as Bo follows the evidence, he learns that the victim made decisions in her last hours that would give powerful forces motive to harm her.

Excellent!

I have been waiting for this book to be released for months. I started my first legal mystery & suspense thriller with Robert Bailey’s previous books “The McMurtrie and Drake” series. He has since become my
favorite author in this genre! I have fallen in love with many of the characters including of course the renowned attorney and totally human ex football legend Bocephus Haynes & his friend & ex-client, Helen aka “The General.”Known as the toughest district attorney the county has ever seen, unfortunately she feels broken a adrift do to choices and situations in her life and past. I cannot wait for the next book in the series! The narrator Eric G. Dove does an excellent job also!

LOVE Robert Bailey’s Thrillers!

What a treat INDEED to enjoy well-written thrillers with strong character development and plot lines, believable twists, surprising denouements, healthy doses of creative profanity 🥰👏 but NO Blasphemy- sadly Rare treats among current thriller writers.

Loved the story

Great story but I guessed the perpetrator long before the end. Still, the tale was told in an interesting and entertaining way and I like the characters.

A excellent performance of The Wrong Side

I highly recommend this Audible book performed by Eric G. Dove. He has captured all the emotions, the ups & downs, of the drama surrounding a legal case involving the murder of a much loved young woman with a promising career and her football star boyfriend. But, it is so much more. If you not read Robert Bailey's previous book, you are in for a surprise as attorney Bocephus Haynes enters the case - on the side of the defendant.

I was hooked but …

I found the ending so disappointing. It was abrupt and anti climactic. Not enough attention had been put on the actual perpetrator. I love a story with good red herrings that lead you to the wrong conclusion and lots of possible bad-guys. But the ending ruined that for me.

Best yet

Bailey’s books are so entertaining for lawyers because his characters actually know what the law is and what actually happens in courtrooms. There is not a practicing trial lawyer alive who has not dealt with the twin brothers of sisters of Bailey’s clients, cops. opposing counsel or judges.

Not bad, not great

I have listened to the rest of the stories in this series, but even so there is a lot of reliance on previous knowledge of people and plots which were referred to a lot! It was an ok sequel, not great, or gripping.

Outstanding as ever

What a great listen. Yet again Robert Bailey has delivered with 'The wrong side.' You just want to be transported into the story to meet the characters he so vividly portrays. This is phenomenal and there is no way until the very end you will guess who has done what, when, where and to whom! My only advice is listen to all of Robert Bailey's books starting with, The Professor, then you will learn where the character Bocephus comes from and how the past influences to present.

I sincerely hope we don't have to wait long for another book!
