Review by: Amy Taylor on Aug. 11, 2014 :
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!

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.

Review by: Jo Steinman on June 28, 2012 :
Having read One Just Man in four days, I couldn’t wait to buy Elohim - Masters and Minions, and, just to make sure I wouldn’t miss it, I bought straightaway Winston’s Kingdom. Now I have the complete Trilogy and loving it!

Seriously, I really do love them. First the One Just Man, and now I’m halfway through the Elohim, which takes Peter Thornton into the field of genetics, artificial intelligence and nanotechnology. But to appreciate him, you must read One Just Man first. It creates a unique man that can than take you along into realms you’ve never imagined. I simply can’t imagine what Law will do in Winston’s Kingdom!

Review by: Barbara Woolfe on June 11, 2012 :
I couldn’t put the book down. The story swept me along, without letting up. Mystery, emotions, suspense, and most of all Stan Law’s forte: his passion for visionary metaphysics; not to the exclusion of physical life, but expanding it to a fascinating reality.

But what really got me going was that the moment I finished One Just Man, Elohim—Masters and Minions, and Winston’s Kingdom of the Winston Trilogy were already waiting for me. I didn’t miss a single day, but continued reading. You just can’t beat that!

Review by: Patrick Johnson on June 06, 2012 :
Accolades on Amazon.com made me buy this book. That was six months ago. Reading One Just Man led me to buy Elohim and Winston’s Kingdom. The whole Winston Trilogy is a splendid read. Originality, action, suspense, deep thought, romance, did I forget something?
Oh, yes. If you like visionary fiction and metaphysics than this Trilogy is a must read!
Keep them coming, Mr. Law. Please!

Review by: Sylvester Drake on June 05, 2012 :
There are few novels that satisfied my need of action, a modicum of suspense, romance and above all else, which had something to say. This one has it all. The paradox of a highly trained physician who cannot use his expert knowledge due to his hands possessing more healing power and any science could equip him with is explored in a masterly fashion. And then, there is more, much more than just the physical aspect of man.

This is a spellbinding book which all, who feel that we are more than just a bag of water, should read.

Review by: Hanna K. Loda on Feb. 11, 2011 :
Faith healing goes back a long way, but what happens when the deliverer of such healing does not believe in it himself? This book tackles this problem together with such other complexities, as to make this novel an international spiritual thriller. Law involves you in his characters, making them unforgettable. If you read one of his books, you read them all.

Review by: Bohdan Czytelnik on Feb. 10, 2011 :
A fascinating journey of personal growth and enlightenment. A brilliant and powerful story with strong and complex character development. Law travels between the finite and the infinite with the ease of a seasoned sailor. A metaphysical jewel. Wonderful.

Review by: Adam Kerry on Feb. 10, 2011 :
Edgar Cayce, Ze Arrigo, Bruno Groening, and now Peter Thornton. The first three were men of flesh and blood. Yet… are they all imaginary? Or is there a Power that works through people with or without their acquiescence for the benefit of others. This is what this book examines. The depth of author’s perception and the attributes of human consciousness he postulates are astonishing. It is a first class read.

Review by: Anetta Bach on Feb. 06, 2011 :
There is no doubt in my mind that Stan Law is a master of the inner realm. Perhaps the master. Once he dives into the spiritual complexities of human nature, he has none equal.

The evolution of Peter Thornton’s psyche is as gripping as is the story itself; his personal Armageddon is a joy to read. I love his writing.

Review by: Marlon (Marvin) D. Clark on Feb. 06, 2011 :
A physician tries to reconcile his hard-acquired medical knowledge with an enigmatic gift of healing. We all know from past experience that such ‘gifts’ are rejected and condemned by the professional establishment. His medical career is in ruins. What follows are 300 spellbinding pages. Fantastic development!
