Police recruit Carly Redmund, is about to mess up her first crime scene in Mobile, Alabama.

She’s found evidence of a murder — a high school class ring — in the bottom of a well. Her training officer, J.C.  Grey, orders her to hand it over. Then he pockets it.
When a news van pulls in, Carly  learns that bones in the well may be those of Terence, a missing black kid from the 1970s. Grey tells her to keep her mouth shut.
What she doesn’t know is that a white supremacist group is involved.

 It is not surprising that a retired police officer has written this since it is wonderfully realistic …. An unremitting examination of how race plays such an overwhelming role in the life of a small southern city. …You will find “Well of Rage” endlessly fascinating.
