The grave on the football field is shallow and easy to spot from a distance. It would have been found sooner, had most of the residents in the black half of Birmingham not been downtown, marching, singing, and being arrested alongside Martin Luther King, Jr. Police detective Ben Wellman is among them when he gets the call about the fresh grave.

Under the loosely packed dirt, he finds a young black girl, her innocence taken and her life along with it. His sergeant orders Wellman to investigate, but instructs him not to try too hard. In the summer of 1963, Birmingham is tense enough without a manhunt for the killers of a black child. Wellman digs for the truth in spite of skepticism from the black community and scorn from his fellow officers. What he finds is a secret that men from both sides of town would prefer stayed buried.

    " Summer of '63 in Birmingham. That's the setting for this mystery / "coming of consciousness" novel. If you're old enough to remember that summer, this book will evoke memories; if you're too young, it will give you a strong sense of that summer and some of the events. Highly recommended. "

    " Great novel set in 1963 Birmingham Alabama. If you love history, and the Civl Rights Era, a great read. "
