Murder Among The Magnolias

Forceful female professor is victim of a diabolical murder.

The place is Savannah, Georgia; the time is the present; and the action starts with the revenge-style murder - in her office at SUS (State University at Savannah) - of a firebrand feminist English professor who'd had bitter conflicts with her boss and some of her colleagues and had been either loved or hated by her students.

During his investigation, rookie detective and narrator T.J. Loomis discovers and exposes in telling detail some of the ugly underside of the politics and behavior so prevalent among college faculty in our time.

At the turning point of his investigation Loomis finds himself having to choose between his duty as a police officer, which is to find and see justice done to the killer of a professor he'd hated, and his loyalty to another of his former professors - a gay, stagey southern traditionalist he'd always liked and admired.

About The Author
William Breedlove Martin
I was born in Macon, Georgia, in 1942. My father was a druggist and my mother a housewife until his illness put her to work as a newspaper reporter and eventually as a school teacher. I lived in a number of small towns in middle and south Georgia and played football in high school well enough for Presbyterian College to offer me a scholarship. After spending four years in the U.S. Air Force and one year as a management trainee at a bank, I earned a B.A. and a M.A. in English, the latter at Duke University and the former at Armstrong State College, from which, after teaching English for thirty-one years, I retired in 2006. My wife and I live in Savannah and have two daughters, three grandchildren, and one miniature Dachshund, on all of whom we dote. I have long been a compulsive novelist, ala Antony Trollop, no sooner finishing one novel than beginning another. One of my two novels in print, the one about a big southern family during World War I which was republished in 2013 as IN ANOTHER TIME but was first published in 2008 as TIME IS THE FIRE, had two signings here in Savannah, one at E. Shaver and the other at Barnes & Noble where it sold a then store record, forty-four copies, for a single signing by a local author.
