    Right off the bat this novel plunges us into the midst of the struggles of the fascinating central character Marcy Leone, who faces mulitple issues, ranging from marital and religious to legal and medical. Then Dr. Paul progressively intensifies the dramatic tension with detailed and believable human characters which are fleshed out with extaordinary insight into human nature. Then he brackets the action and interaction with remarkable facts about the Mafia and corruption in corporations and the legal system. And all of this crescendoes in an amazing surprise ending. The overall impact is quite impressive, and results in a book you will want to read from start to finish. An impressive accomplishment; I loved reading every page.

    Wow! This book is a definite must-buy for all psychological thriller lovers. The story speaks for itself, but since Dr. Paul is a new author, I promise you that it is worth reading again and again. My husband and I were both captivated by all the twists and turns in the plot, which ultimately functioned as an intricate clockwork. And I was very moved by the central character, Marcy Leone, and how she managed to overcome so many real and difficult obstacles. Informative and very entertaining at the same time. What more can I say?

    This exciting book is a gem of a novel. Set in contemporary New York City, the action and interaction build upon each other and culminate in a most unexpected double-twist ending. It was marvelous to see Dr. Paul unfolding the intensity of the suspense that drives his colorful but all-too-real characters, including the Mafia. Marcy, the central character, is most engaging. Exceptionally well researched and written, Passion Is The Power displays Dr. Paul's medical talents and psychiatric knowledge of people and their relationships. He explores sexual and eating disorders, and fleshes out the meaning of passion. Accented with facsinating facts, he reveals the intricacies of corporate and legal system corruption, largely unknown to me (and most people, I think). Dr. Paul displays remarkable insight into human nature and culture. He is a gifted writer. Just terrific!
