Noble Vision

Noble Vision

An innovative doctor discovers a vital cure.
A desperate patient needs it.
A crushing state health system won't allow it.

Tightly plotted, elegantly written, vibrantly romantic, and ardently pro-liberty, this timely novel makes the ideal read for all lovers of fiction and freedom.

David Lang spent years training to be a neurosurgeon, yet bureaucrats who never went to medical school 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 irks the regulators of New York's health system, CareFree, who reprimand and fine him—and threaten more serious consequences if he doesn't reform.

What happens when the state intrudes on our most precious gifts—our minds, our imagination, our creativity, and our free choice?

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 it requires CareFree's approval. Wracked with budget overruns and politically motivated priorities, the powerful agency rejects the new technique.

As he wades through the red tape, David's frustrations mount. Then one case pushes him over the edge.

Who should decide what treatment a patient receives?

Lovely, strong-willed 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 desperately wants it, but an agency intervenes to decide for her.

A rebel doctor, a beautiful dancer, a growing love, and a crucial battle for personal freedom converge in one explosive case.

Noble Vision is an exciting novel that dramatizes the healthcare crisis with nail-biting suspense and surprising plot twists. You'll experience the thrill of a medical breakthrough, the anguish of a tragic accident, the agony of life-changing decisions made by impersonal officials, and the perils of putting everything on the line to fight for one's work, one's ideals—and ultimately for one's life.

The winner of two national literary awards, Noble Vision is a tightly plotted and sensitively written story, with mounting conflicts and startling twists—pure entertainment. It is also a duel of the conflicting ideologies piercing the heart of medicine today.
