"Well Considered is a suspenseful but deeply moving novel that gripped me throughout. I recommend it." -William Byers Ron Watkins learns that his great-grandfather, Thomas, was murdered by a mob in 1907 in Maryland. He is driven to find proof that Thomas was an innocent victim in order to protect his children's familial and racial pride from those who might assume that Thomas committed some crime that incited the violence. But as Ron searches for information, Jimmy Clay, neo-Nazi owner of a dilapidated general store and oil-and-lube who has ties to the 1907 mob, learns of his activities. Clay becomes convinced that Ron intends to steal his property, and with two cohorts seizes him as he jogs through the woods. Wilma, Ron's wife, futilely searches for him and desperately calls on neighbors for help. What Ron does not know is that the truth he seeks is hidden in the mind of a friend. Set in former tobacco fields in Maryland, Well Considered travels back to a time a century ago and shows how people and events buried deep in the past can still affect us and control our existence. This is a story of racial conflict and reconciliation, suspense, mystery, history, and humor with characters you will not soon forget.
