Overview

Mark Noble plans a surprise proposal to his girlfriend during a romantic Caribbean vacation. But before he can pop the question, she disappears, and his father — a world-famous celebrity doctor who seems to have perfected mind-control — is killed in a mysterious fire back home. While searching for his girlfriend, Mark finds himself chased by two dangerous thugs, and the race is on to find out the truth of her disappearance before it’s too late.

Mark’s investigation into his girlfriend’s disappearance and his father’s death uncovers a sinister connection, a mystery he attempts to unravel with the help of his eccentric grandmother and the courageous crew — one a former Navy SEAL — of her luxury yacht. Putting all of their lives at risk, Mark comes up against a rich and powerful foe determined to pry from Mark a secret he doesn’t even know he possesses.

Not since Richard Condon’s The Manchurian Candidate and Dean Koontz’s False Memory have such keen intelligence, shocking twists, and explosive turns graced the thriller genre. Its intensity increasing from the very beginning, A Noble Cause pounds the senses with such uncompromising originality that there is little to do but rush toward its shattering climax.

    Painfully Hard to Read

    This book had such a difficult writing style that it made a James Joyce novel appear simple to read. The author needs to realize that the reader only knows what he has written. Mark Noble is in Antigua and sends his girlfriend Vanessa to a jewelry store to pick up some earrings. Mark had intended to propose to her that day so while she is gone, he readies for the big moment. However she fails to come back. Mark goes to the police who appear useless (the author should realize he is writing about "Antigua" not "Aruba").

    Mark then gets a call from his father, Ian Noble who invented the Noble method of helping addicts cure their addiction through a type of hypnosis. His father tells him he is in danger and to get out. Things seem to happen for no reason such a a guy immediately breaking into Mark's room and then a guy trying to attack Mark at the airport. Then it appears that Marks home in the states burned to the ground with his parents inside.

    Mark calls a guy who works on his grandmother's yacht (Mark works on the same yacht) who is an ex-Navy Seal for help. They take off after the bad guys in a search to located Vanessa. This sounds exciting but because of the writing style it was painful to cull these facts out of the disjointed narrative that is presented. The writing was so bad that I was extemely tempted to move to the last page and just see how it ends and be done with it. Save your money on this.
