An autobiographical drama in which an innocent man paid his reputation and nearly his life for almost twenty years, Deadly Roses by Marvin Marable is a shocking tale of what happens when officials follow the wrong leads and guilty men have the means to cover their tracks and flee the country. Set between Atlanta and Palm Beach, the author's life was sent into turmoil soon after his divorce. Two weeks after his divorce was finalized, his ex-wife's best friend was murdered. While there wasn't compelling evidence to indict or arrest Marable in the deadly 1987 slaying, he was intensely scrutinized as a suspect. The aftermath of the extensive investigation, involving the FBI, the U.S. Attorney's Office, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, and the Atlanta Police, changed his life as well as his sense of security and justice. Unable to refute statements made against him upon the advice of counsel, Marable struggled for two decades until he ultimately became a witness for the prosecution.
