I recently met a new author.
A Ghostly Shade of Pale, a novel by Merle Temple.
A story about Michael – Merle himself, really, as a secret narcotics agent in the 70’s.
A fictional story based on truth – truth of Merle Temple’s real years of fighting the ever-growing drug trade in our state of Mississippi.
Little did our United States government know that it would not be snuffed out with seemingly small efforts on their part but life-sacrificing work on the part of special agents,
…maneuvering through channels toward the ultimate dealer.
Death narrowly escaped him often.
How many of us would put ourselves in harm’s way, in secret, to be slaughtered by our wayward citizens?
…Our remains never to be found by anyone.
Meeting in secret.
Which side are they on?
Questions. Who holds the key – to the truth?
What’s really going on here?
Who is packing heat?
Which one will use it?
A story of intrigue but truth. His work covered areas around my home in South Mississippi and HH’s home in North Mississippi.
…We were oblivious to it.
University students, each at opposing schools. Happy campus life. Avoiding the drug scene (by the grace of God!).
Saved by prayers of others. My grandmother comes to mind.
Her hand-scribbled notes.
God’s Word brings Truth…and light…and clarity. No more pale.
God’s Word drives away darkness and evil.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10)
