by Ronn Thompson
What forces can be so powerful, what circumstances so defining that a man who had once so willingly dedicated his life to improving the human condition now seeks to isolate himself from the very society that he had once sworn to serve and protect?
In Murrells Inlet, author Ronn Thompson introduces us to Gale Thornton, a medically retired and recently divorced ex cop who quietly exists with his semi-domesticated house cat in their bungalow nestled beside a South Carolina salt marsh. His exit from marriage and police work has left him with little desire to involve himself in the everyday affairs of the human race. He seems content to allow his pension and a lucrative legal settlement to finance his escape from past and present.
Enter Elise Donavan, a talented and beautiful investigative reporter from Charleston whose close friend has inadvertently stumbled upon the murder of a high school senior aboard the cruise ship Empress of the Seas, and now finds her own life in danger. Murrells Inlet takes the reader on one man's journey from behind the walls of self-imposed solitude and into the arms of the special woman who leads him back.
