    One Just Man is a brilliant story that guides the reader through

    One Just Man is a brilliant story that guides the reader through a variety of esoteric thought through an entertaining plot and set of characters. Author Stan I.S. Law brings us this unusual and intelligent story of a doctor who discovers he has a gift for healing. While it would seemingly be a wonderful thing Law shows us how a gift such as this could really affect a man and the world around him. 

    Dr. Peter Thornton is a confident well educated man who believes his photographic memory for scientific fact gives him a cutting edge in his profession. Peter once wanted to be a priest but backed out at the last minute. He was devout even keeping his virginity up until the age of 24 when a nurse showed him what he had been missing. Since then Peter has known many nurses in numerous linen closets around the hospital. He has carried guilt over leaving the seminary and has donated large sums of money to the church for retribution. When Peter’s brother passed away he went against his usual judgment and agreed to move in with his sister in law Ruth, her butler and her children to be a role model to his brother’s adopted children. 

    Dr. Peter Thornton is a complex character with an interesting personality that is explored in depth once he realizes that he has a gift for healing. This gift shakes his self image as it becomes something outside of his hard work and intellect. Shaken, he must learn to cope with his gift and what it means. With the help of some inspiring characters Peter will explore the many angles, responsibilities and emotions that have transpired from this gift.

    Law’s ability to inject humor, dynamic scenery, entertaining dialogue and phenomenal energy into his stories captures both the imagination and the heart long after you have finished with the story. His depiction of one man’s quest to understand the special and life changing ability he has is remarkable. For an unforgettable journey through science, faith, spirituality, love, friendship, and enlightenment, I highly recommend it!

    Medical healing takes on a new twist!

    Just started reading a new series by Author Stan I.S. Law. “One Just Man.” Truly this is a unique piece of literature that presents the read with many different levels of understanding. This is definitely a thought-provoking read that, in my own personal case, blew my mind. I have to admit that I found myself putting the book down at times so that I can digest all that my brain was taking in at once. As a whole, this book is absolutely a gem, and one of the best I have had the chance to read from Author Stan I. S. Law. I say as a whole because it can be overwhelming at times. If that is the case, simply put the book down, rest, breath then finish it all the way through. It is worth making it to the end and if you do you will come back for more.

    In all honesty I don’t even know where to start this review, so I will give it a go on the writing style: In a fast paced, thrilling manner this book will sweep you away, (far away) as it is digresses into a unique and original storyline and plot. At first glance the story will seems pretty straight-forward and bland, i.e. a Doctor with healing powers that are not from this world or probably any other for that matter. Nothing crazy up to that point, but then, out of nowhere, everything takes off in daring manner that will place you dead center in a kidnapping, a papal visit, healing manifestations and secret societies that are just a ‘tip of the iceberg’ as to what you will find in this book.

    There is so much going on in this book that it will literally have you gasping for air and leave you in awe as to what will happen next. Even the twists of fate and destiny will get mixed and transverse in a gripping fashion that will have walking along the main character Dr. Peter Thornton.

    I am definitely beginning to see a patter in the works of Author Stan I.S. Law. Everything he writes or that I have read is profound in nature, everything is thoroughly engrossing that will leave you in a daze and leave you wanting more.

    This book is yet again another testament to the greatness found in his writing style that is so different from all that I have read. The book is edited to perfection, as are all of his books. There is excellent use words and vivid descriptiveness is absolutely superb, I will dare to pose one question that I found to be one of the themes I asked myself when reading this book and with that, I shall close my thoughts on book one of the Winston Trilogy: “What would you do if you learned that you can overcome death itself?” If that does not peak your interest I am not sure what else will…

    5 Stars and cant wait to get on to book #2 in the Winston Trilogy.

    Fascinating Book

    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. Thankfully, Cathy is waiting for him and holds his hand through the long night of the soul to follow.
    Great job, Mr. Law, this is an excellent book and very well written. It is not a run of the mill novel you can read in a day but a thoughtful expression of Dr. Peter Thornton’s moral and spiritual dilemma. I would like to learn more about these characters so I guess I have to buy the next book in the Trilogy.
    Mary Firmin, author of Deadly Pleasures.
