View Description“A small town. A big secret. In December 1957, the wife of a Florida citrus baron is raped in her home while her husband is away. She claims a ‘husky Negro’ did it, and the sheriff, the infamous racist Willis McCall, does not hesitate to round up a herd of suspects. But within days, McCall turns his sights on Jesse Daniels, a gentle, mentally impaired white nineteen-year-old. Soon Jesse is railroaded up to the state hospital for the insane, and locked away without trial. Crusading journalist Mabel Norris Reese cannot stop fretting over the case and its baffling outcome. Who is protecting whom, or what? She pursues the story for years, chasing down leads, hitting dead ends, winning unlikely allies. Bit by bit, the unspeakable truths behind a conspiracy that shocked a community into silence come to the surface. Beneath a Ruthless Sun tells a powerful page-turning story rooted in the fears that rippled through the South as integration began to take hold, sparking a surge of virulent racism that savaged the vulnerable, debased the powerful, and roils our own times still.”–Dust jacket.

View Description“Many children, from the time they are old enough to be attracted to a siren and flashing lights, dream of becoming a police officer. As a retired police officer herself, Alley Evola looks at the daily ins and outs of the job of a police officer. Through recruitment, life at the academy, patrol, and eventually promotion, she provides a helpful understanding of what you can really expect. She also looks at current issues, including race and gender, and how these have shaped certain expectations from the public that a police officer needs to be prepared for when working in this field. When you’re young and dreaming, you don’t think about the process it will take to become a police officer. The many challenges and issues you will face in the field are not evident until after the police academy. [This book] is for everyone who secretly wishes they were a police officer or is pursuing their dream in the hope of transforming it into reality.”–Back cover.
