It features Carly Redmund, a Mobile, Alabama, police 
recruit, who’s about to mess up her first crime scene.

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.

While dealing with her own personal demons, Carly must learn to survive in a hostile environment, develop friends fast in a new city, and solve a cold-case murder to bring justice to a grieving mother.


Well of Rage by Lynn Hesse is a riveting police thriller filled with drama and suspense. It carries readers on a fast-paced, intense journey for justice … It will keep you turning pages until the very end.
