“Once in a while, a thriller comes along that is truly inspired in conception and perfect in execution. Just such a book is Deep as the Marrow, by F. Paul Wilson. The story unfolds with speed and suspense, spurred on by the interactions of the memorable and often likeable characters.” (The Associated Press)

The President of the United States has decided to end the war on drugs.

The left is calling it a right-wing, genocidal plot; the right is calling it a left-wing ploy to destroy the fabric of American society; the drug lords see their empires collapsing; members of his own government fear their budgets being slashed.

Some of them want the President dead.

Caught in the middle is Dr. John Van Duyn. Someone has kidnapped his daughter. If he wants to see her alive again, he must poison one of his patients: the President of the United States.

“Snatches you up, hurls you along at a blistering pace, makes you care about its kinky people—and does it all while staking a position in one of the most embattled issues of our time. You’ll love it; but better still, you ought to love it.” (Dean Ing, New York Times bestselling author)
