What if your twin sister, whom you loved more than anyone in this world was murdered slowly and brutally? What promise of vengeance might you make in your heart towards the perp who got away with that crime? What homicidal plan of justice might you loose upon him- thought out over nine years of waiting for him to walk down the hall of your TCU? Touch the world of advanced practice, ICU medicine where one overvalued idea can morph into megalomania.

Enter Nick Fuller, a smug and gifted clinician, instructor and informal leader. A self-styled Moses, he is dedicated to this secret pledge of retribution and his profession.

He is flanked by his director who detests his arrogance but respects his high standards. Nick has the flaw of pride. He will not abide those who are stupid when dealing with the sick. He is at the core of a cadre of quality respiratory therapists who teach "the arts" within the story line. His quick teaching reminders are what he calls "Laws." They serve as an undefeatable code of conduct, safe practice, a framework for clinical excellence and an overall explanation for the absurdities of medicine. His mentor, Al brings vast experience as does Fatima, a Muslim whose husband is traveling further into Islam beyond anything that American culture might accept. Naomi Hathaway was trained by Nick. Clinically astute, she is a sweet and pure farm girl. Her ambition is to move into management, her main competitor girl named Zoe who has freckles as big as typewriter keys and a detective's gift for looking at clues. Zoe's mind contains only cogs and gears.

This world medicine exists inside a continuing phenomenon-the explanation for which few might accept-if they were looking. Only one old, dying priest knows that for nearly two centuries monks have been watching over site where this new hospital stands. What answers can be found in the metaphysical blowback that is built into the very foundation of the building where germs, genius and stupidity labor side by side?

Book one of the six part Cincinnati Sinai Series, this fiction work is a wry, insider must read for clinicians as well as all who cope with disease and crave to know the shape of medical reality outside the politely shut door of their hospital room.

Frank Little is a registered respiratory therapist who passed the orals in 1977 and has since as a supervisor and an ICU practitioner at a 700 hospital in the Cincinnati area.


LAW OF THE LUNG is the first of the CINCINNATI SINAI SERIES. These medical fiction thrillers mirror reality showing the zeniths of medicine, the frailty of the human machine and the "code" by which one therapist operates.
In a world not built to last, in that space between diagnosis and demise stands an army ready to give battle to disease, despair, decay, death and a few things even worse.
