Law professor publishes a legal thriller where the hero is a Trusts & Estates lawyer

Cooper_JeffJeffrey A. Cooper, Professor of Law and Associate Dean for Research and Faculty Development at Quinnipiac University School of Law, has just published his novel entitled After the Fact in which a T&E attorney is the hero. How exciting is that?! I can't wait to read it! Here is the teaser:

When Jack Collins leaves a small Connecticut law practice to join one of the nation’s most prestigious firms, he trades a nondescript office for one in a gleaming New York City skyscraper. He basks in the pride of working with people far more glamorous than those he left behind, including a famous boss, an alluring coworker, and a well-known client, Abigail Walker, the wealthy widow of a senator.

Jack thinks he’s on the path to glory, but he’s really a victim of deceit, a pawn in a game he doesn’t even know he’s playing. His new boss harbors deep secrets, his seductive coworker is not the person he thinks she is, and his new law firm is at the very center of a blackmail plot involving the widow Walker.

Blinded by the allure of wealth and power, Jack doesn’t see the danger around him. Time is running out for him to figure out the truth before he loses everything: his career, his marriage, and maybe even his life.
