When psychiatrist Jason Andrews is lured away from Harvard Medical School to spend a year’s sabbatical at the Marsden Clinic near Washington, D.C., he anticipates a quiet year of study of the promising new drug Psychoden. Instead, he discovers a gruesome trail of blackmail, suicide, and murder and a national government in crisis. The Marsden Clinic’s clientele is drawn from the capital’s most powerful insiders, and as more and more of Andrews’ patients fall victim to the mayhem, he begins to doubt himself and all of those around him. His efforts to unravel the mystery land him squarely in the middle of the terrifying plot, ultimately endangering not only his own life, but also that of the woman he loves.

After the vice president commits suicide, a congressman dies under odd circumstances and is also labeled a suicide. Another congressman's house is bombed soon after a phone call claims the bomber is the congressman himself. Only he couldn't have made the call: he's in a suburban inn awaiting a psychiatric examination at D.C.'s high-profile Marsden Clinic. Staff psychiatrist Jason Andrews tries to figure out why his exam subjects are either committing suicide--or being framed as suicides, uncovering plot to use Psychoden, a new truth-telling drug, to blackmail top government officials. Crisp writing blends with a solid grip on psychiatry to render a competent but not compelling thriller.
