Glad it didn't cost me anything...it was worth about that much....
K. Brown
Don't start reading this unless you have time to thoroughly digest it, this book needs to be read and savored word by word.
M. Brown
It really gives you something to think about and the more you read, the more it gives you.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Peter Thornton spent many years studying medicine. At the highest point of his career it is discovered that Peter has a gift of healing. A gift that he sees as a curse as it interferes with his life and career. This gift sends him on a moral journey, faced with the questions of why him and the meaning of life. A philosophical gem. Enlightens the readers mind to the potential of the human being and to other possibilities. Reminiscent to the trials of Job and the questioning of David in the book of Psalms. Fascinating characters in a captivating story.

What an absolutely amazing book! I was lucky enough to win a copy of this book and I am so glad that I did because had I not, I would have missed an opportunity to read something incredible. It is inspirational and uplifting. This is a book that needs to be read and digested slowly. Fantastic story, great characters and a book that makes you think!

One Just Man
By
Stan I.S. Law

Dr. Peter Thornton is a final-year resident at Montreal General Hospital in Canada. He is a cynical man and a bit of a rake when it comes to women. His favorite assignations are with compliant nurses in a darkened linen closet where he takes what he wants with the same robotic efficiency he demonstrates on his morning rounds. Dr. Peter has a photographic memory when it comes to scientific facts and uses this gift to provide the best possible care to his patients. His immediate boss the aging, yet active, Resident Chief Dr. Brent is impressed by the young resident's talents and the fact that his patients appear to heal extraordinarily well and exit the hospital quicker than the norm. After the young doctor completes his final exams Dr. Brent recommends him for Membership in the prestigious Royal College of Physicians.
Dr. Thornton's living arrangements are somewhat unorthodox as well. After his brother died he moved in with his sister-in-law Ruth and her two young children. To further complicate the situation a butler appears on scene, recommended by the dead brother, and becomes a dominant figure in the household. Very quickly, the enigmatic Winston Smith makes himself irreplaceable to the whole family. Then, Peter meets the beautiful and exotic Catherine Mondellay, who has a Ph.D. in nuclear physics and is the daughter of a billionaire. He falls madly in love.
But everything is about to change.
Mr. Law, the author, has a firm grasp on the disciplines of both physics and metaphysics as his character Peter Thornton delves into his psyche to find out the reasons for the radical change in his behavior. The reader is led through the mind of the good doctor as he contemplates his situation.

Format: Kindle Edition
Two central motifs that pervade ONE JUST MAN center on dualism and paradox. And so it is appropriate that my review will be somewhat dualistic and paradoxical. That is, I am going to very highly recommend this book, but I will also offer some rather sharp criticism.

The premise is one common in literature: a man who has a Messiah complex, or a man who really is the Messiah, but doesn't know it yet. It's a theme that pops up across all genres: In science fiction there is Michael Morcock's "Behold the Man" and Philip K. Dick's "The Divine Invasion." In New Age literature there's Richard Bach's Don Shimoda. In contemporary literature Chuck Palahnuik's creates Victor Mancini. In classic literature there are many: Camus' Meursault, for example. Of course, Nikos Kazantzakis reimagined Christ himself in his 1953 classic, "The Last Temptation of Christ."

In ONE JUST MAN, then, we have Dr. Peter Thornton, a brilliant, up-and-coming Montreal physician who slowly begins to realize his powers of healing go well beyond medical science. He's a resistant and reluctant messiah, but eventually his "gift' overpowers him. As the novel progresses, he must accept his fate for what he is.

Because the best fiction is based on character author STAN I.S. LAW scores high marks for crafting a viewpoint character in a way that is subtle yet powerful - but it is another character that looms over every moment of the narrative in an even more subtle and powerful way - the family butler Winston Smith.

Imagine if you could a mix of Batman's man Alfred with the legendary Hermes Trismegistus. Or maybe if you combined equal amount John the Baptist, Simon Magus, Erwin Schrödinger and Sir John Gielgud - you would then have the mysterious Winston Smith.

Normally, I wouldn't venture into medical problems. But, well, this is Stan Law. I was right. No sooner has Dr. Peter Thornton completed his final exams to become the youngest Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, when he is swept into the turbulences of international intrigue, taking us with him for the ride.
Luckily for him an exotic daughter of a billionaire is there to hold his hand. If it weren't for Cathy, the sinuous and beautiful maiden who just happens to have a Ph.D. in nuclear physics, Peter would have probably remained a rake determined to corner the most beautiful nurses into the lined cupboard.
It is a wonderful page-turner.
