About the Author

Stanislaw Kapuscinski, (aka Stan I.S. Law) an architect, sculptor and prolific writer, was educated in Poland and England. A refugee from Poland at 13, then at 33, having overcome numerous difficulties, he began his search for the secret of life. Now, he is a successful writer, happily married for 25 years, with an assured future. His special interests cover a broad spectrum of arts, sciences and philosophy. At times he seeks inspiration in the Peruvian Andes, or solitude under sail. His books (articles, short stories, poetry) attest to his particular passion for the scope and the development of Human Potential. He authored more than thirty books, nineteen of them novels. His non-fiction explores Ancient Myths, Biblical Symbolism, Immortality and the mystery of Visualization. Three volumes of Essays (Beyond Religion) investigate the Nature of Being. Generally, if you suspect you are more than flesh and bones, read Stan Law. If you want to be sure, read Stanislaw Kapuscinski.

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.

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.

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!

Prior to his entering medical school, Dr. Peter Thornton, had been studying to be a priest at Sr. Frances of Assisi seminary, but left the day before graduation. Blessed with a photographic memory, in his last year residency at Montreal General Hospital in Montreal, Canada, preparing to take his oral examinations in order to be accredited as a doctor, continually exhausted as a Resident Doctor, he utilized his free time having sex with the young nurses. While attending medical school, he lived with his sister-in-law, Ruth Thornton after his brother Andrew Thornton's death. Ruth had two young children, Moira and Jonathan. After Andrew's death, a large, mysterious older Englishman, named Winston Smith, showed up with a letter from Andrew saying that he was to be accepted into the household as all around servant, adviser, jack-of-all trades and protector. Throughout the story, there is nothing that Winston can't do or no questions that he can't answer. As the story progressed, he appeared in people's dreams and taught them, including the children.

Just before Peter's certification, at a ball, he met a beautiful young woman, Catherine Mondellay, who held a Ph.D. in nuclear physics. They left the ball and made love that first night and then although he thought of her often, they didn't see each other for some time. Dr. John Brent, Chief of Medicine and Resident Director of General Hospital met with Peter and discussed why Peter could treat his patients and cure them 23% faster than other residents. Peter didn't know and then one night when going off shift, a woman whose son was in E.R. and dying begged Peter to just touch him. Peter did seek the child out, could tell by his symptoms he would die and he spontaneously held the child in love and then left. The child recovered.

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.
