Book description…

The Best and Worst of Human Nature. A police officer involved in a controversial event is reassigned to a quiet district to avoid attention, but he encounters a ghost who leads him on a high-speed chase. A newspaper article leads a Marine down a complex path of memory toward a deserter who saved his life. A man desperate to prove the existence of God goes searching for a ghost…and finds something he couldn’t imagine. A boy on the brink of adolescence is attracted to an eccentric neighbor and struggles to make sense of a scene he accidentally sees. In these stories and more, author Ed Moroney illuminates the shadows of the soul and channels the brilliant light that shines from the human heart. From lonely policemen to brutal men in battle, from the poignant immediacy of small-town life to the insignificance of one person in a crowd, from transcendence to degradation, these beautifully observed tales teach, inspire, surprise, and entertain.
