Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Setting his first novel in the Midwestern community of New Warsaw, psychologist Peck ( The Road Less Traveled ) focuses on inmates of the Willow Glen nursing home. This small but fascinating world is soon disrupted by the murder of its most famous and charismatic resident, spastic quadriplegic Stephen Solaris, who taps messages with his knuckles on a letter board and is the only non-elderly resident. Ex-New Yorker Lt. Petri, a fresh recruit to the local police force, plunges into an investigation, armed with a fistful of preconceptions about nursing homes and seniors, and is saved from making a false arrest by the fortunate interference of residents Marion Grochowski and Georgia Bates. Petri admits his mistake and broadens his search, finally seeking help from Dr. Kolnietz, Willow Glen therapist. Peck's interest in the metaphysical is well placed in the nursing home setting, where death is an expected visitor. Yet the author's examination of virtue is more searching than his consideration of evil, and some characters experience unconvincing changes of heart. But that should not deter the reader from enjoying a generally intelligent look at human growth. (Sept.)
Library Journal
Set in a Midwestern nursing home, a newly transplanted New York police officer's first homicide involves a young cerebral palsy patient who, while unable to speak or move, has had a great influence on those with whom he has come in contact. Tom Petri faces the odd assortment of Willow Glen's patients and staff while also confronting his own preconceptions, prejudices, and emotional upheaval. The author's expertise in medicine and psychology is evident. Peck is the author of the self-help best seller The Road Less Traveled (LJ 9/15/78) and other titles, but his collection of typically troubled and/or bizarre characters seems at times excessive; in fact, the existence of some appears pointless. Not a necessary acquisition. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 4/15/90.-- Judith A. Gifford, Salve Regina Coll. Lib., Newport, R.I.

    Opportunity if you ignore imperfectations

    This is not a great mystery story. That said, it is a book which can lead to personal insights if you are open and willing to accept a good read that's throught provoking but not worthy of 5 stars.
