NOBLE VISION has multiple times been #1 Kindle Best Seller in Medical Fiction and #1 Best Seller in Political Fiction.
NOBLE VISION is the love story of a beautiful dancer, whose life is shattered by a tragic accident, and a young neurosurgeon determined to save her. The dancer’s only hope is the surgeon’s breakthrough new treatment. But the treatment lacks the required approval of the state-run health system, a bureaucracy wracked with cost overruns and other, politically motivated priorities. If the doctor defies the law and treats her, he’s ruined. If he doesn’t, she is. The doctor must take on the entire system—and the ambitious politician who runs it—to fight for his work, his ideals, and the woman he loves.
Brilliant Manhattan neurosurgeon David Lang spent years training for his profession, yet regulators who never went to medical school second-guess him. Their rule books dictate whom he can treat, what tests he can perform, when he can operate, what he can charge—and it drives him crazy. He repeatedly breaks the rules and follows his own will. This defiance irks the administrators of New York’s health system, CareFree, who reprimand and fine him—and threaten more serious consequences if he doesn’t reform.
David has developed a breakthrough treatment to repair damaged nerves, which promises a long-awaited cure for paralyzing brain and spinal cord injuries. He believes his treatment is safe, but he must first get CareFree’s permission to use it. On the brink of bankruptcy, the powerful agency puts David’s procedure on the back burner. To the surgeon’s despair, it will take years for CareFree to study the new technique and for him to complete the red tape needed for acceptance. If he performs the treatment without the proper authorization, he can lose his license and even face jail.
His frustrations mount. Then one case pushes him over the edge.
Lovely, strong-willed dancer Nicole Hudson rose to Broadway stardom from a wretched childhood only to have her life shattered by a tragic accident. David’s new treatment is her only hope. She knows the risks of the experimental procedure, but she desperately wants to try it. To be effective, it must be done soon. They cannot wait years to go through the approval process of CareFree.
A rebel doctor, a beautiful dancer, a growing romantic attraction, and a dangerous run-in with the law converge in one explosive case.
NOBLE VISION is an exciting novel with nail-biting suspense and plot twists you’ll never see coming. You’ll experience the thrill of a medical breakthrough, the anguish of a tragic accident, the agony of life-changing decisions made outside of one’s control, and the excitement of two people from discordant worlds discovering their own supreme harmony.
Tightly plotted, elegantly written, vibrantly romantic, and keenly controversial, this timely novel makes the ideal thinking-person’s thriller.
