POSTPONED Thierry Sagnier, DOPE, release event

Stay tuned for a new date for this event!


Join us at One More Page for the release of DOPE, book two in the Colin Marsh Trilogy, with Thierry Sagnier.

In the summer of 2016, many addicts are dying in the Washington, D.C. area. Their obituaries advertise a major change in the addiction community.


They die quietly, as most addicts do. Among them are a right-wing radio personality, a local politician who overdosed in a hotel suite with a 14-year-old prostitute, and Willie B., a celebrated local street musician. There is no obvious connection among these deaths.


Colin Marsh, ex-reporter, has attended more funerals than he can count, but the loss of Willie B. nags at him. Why so many addict deaths? Why Willie B. who was a smart user? Having worked together to defeat a major drug dealer in Thirst, Colin Marsh and Mamadou Dioh team up again in Dope to combat an even greater threat—a plot to distribute poisoned drugs in the Washington area targeting untold thousands of users. 


“Sagnier builds characters as solid, gritty, and as broken as a D.C. street, with prose that lights up like monuments on a starry night.” — Michael J. Sullivan, best-selling author of The Riyria Revelations
