A devoted wife and mother and a Harvard-educated scientist working as a biology professor at the University of Alabama–Huntsville, Amy Bishop seemed to have it all. But when she was denied tenure, her whole world came crashing down…and she reacted in a way no one ever could have imagined.
On February 13, 2010, Amy was charged with murder for opening fire in a staff meeting the day before, killing three colleagues and injuring others. How could one woman's fury unleash such destruction? While the campus massacre made national headlines, authorities began a thorough investigation and uncovered another chilling episode in Amy's past.
When she was twenty-one, Amy fatally shot her teenage brother, Seth. His death was ruled an accident—and no charges were pressed. But for many involved in the case, Amy's story didn't add up, and law-enforcement officials suspected it was murder…After the Huntsville rampage, the cold case was reopened and Amy would find herself charged with killing her own brother—murder in the first degree. If Amy had been found guilty twenty-four years earlier, three lives might have been saved.
A Professor's Rage is the chilling true story of an intelligent woman with a secret past ... a past that would burst out in a shocking killing.

A professors rage
The author of this book done a excellent job in her writings of the events that dated back for years. It was very easy to follow along with the events as she did not exclude any persons because of their title or political back ground. I live in the great state of Alabama and this tragedy was touch by all persons living here. Sometimes we are labeled as backwoods hillbillies from persons in other states but as this book portrayed , we are people with southern hospitality. Members of these communities reached out to the professors family and gave selflessly in their time of need also. Her children are innocent. In Alabama we have stiff laws and prefer not to let persons get away with murder, but also do not hold persons guilty by association. This author did and excellent job with this book.
