Pensions, retirement planning and investment strategies. As more baby boomers approach retirement, the financial and logistical sides of retirement become increasingly important. Aside from the economic worries, retirement is supposed to be about the freedom, leisure and fun earned through hard work and commitment. Breathing some much needed fun and excitement into the idea of retirement, Bill Noel releases “The Marsh: A Folly Beach Mystery”(published by iUniverse), the newest novel in his murder mystery series.

In “Cities That Will Help You Stay Active In Retirement,” a recent article on, William P. Barrett suggests walking, biking and volunteering as ways to stay active and healthy in retirement. Never does he mention investigating a murder as part of a great retirement activity. Yet, Chris Landrum, Noel’s protagonist in “The Marsh,” does just that when his friend is murdered and an acquaintance is named as the prime suspect.

With the help of an eclectic cast of characters – including an aging hippy who owns a surf shop, a washed-up country music singer, and the attractive and charming waitress Chris sparks a relationship with – Noel’s amateur detective takes a break from his idyllic, island-life retirement to uncover the secrets in this exciting murder mystery.

“The Marsh,” a novel sure to appeal to fans of mystery stories as well as the aging baby boomer generation, has been selected for inclusion in the iUniverse Star program, which recognizes excellence in writing and commercial success.
