 978-0-9780267-6-9

 Novel., 352 pages

  $24.95 IP $18.00

A promising career of a young physician is cut short by an enigmatic gift of healing. He rebels against his destiny, until a will greater than his own takes over and, unwittingly, he learns how to overcome death itself.
 

 I bought Mr. Law's book One Just Man and have just finished reading every single word. This book is a jewel.... I own my own company called Exploring the Sprit . . . (and) would like to carry & sell a good number of Mr. Law's books.

Kathleen Y. Rattigan, Exploring Your Spirit

I highly recommend having Stan Law read aloud. It boosts sales by creating a rapport with potential customers.

 Chapter One (exerpt)

 THE INTERVIEW

 

The time is six o'clock in the morning.

It is quite normal for Dr. Peter Thornton to arrive at the Montreal General Hospital well before the appointed time. Today is no exception. Dr. Thornton does not expect a mere five hours of sleep to have an adverse effect on his perform-ance. Performance. That's how he thinks of the Rounds. The dreary morning tour of the Wards with the usual contin-gent of residents and interns. An ignorant lot.

"Good morning Dr. Thornton." The tone is coquettish. Half way between a greeting and a giggle. Dr. Thornton turns his head.

A regular set of white teeth smile at him. The grin seems incongruously awake below the still sleepy eyelids. A spotless white tunic accentuates the girl's hourglass figure while a crisp white cap is fighting a loosing battle in an at-tempt to regiment the nurse's abundant blond hair. Dr. Thornton tries not to show that he finds the greeting a mite annoying. People shouldn't smile this early in the morning. Not even student nurses. Then he remembers the pixie face. Actually, not so much her face as the soft, resilient body in a darkened linen closet. Last week? Possibly.

 Chapter 24(excerpt)

 Rome

 

A limousine with SI insignia takes the foursome to the SI hotel. There, an elevator with the SI monogram sand-blasted on its glass walls, lifts them in respectful silence to the suite reserved for the SI VIPs.

"I'll wager that you and I are the only non-members of the Solidarity who ever put their foot inside this building, let alone this suite," Peter comments when, for the first time in three days, they find themselves alone.

Ruth and Peter are given a three-room apartment with a western exposure. If the view is not intentional, then, par-ticularly in Peter's eyes, it is prophetic. The hotel soars twenty stories over the east bank of the Tiber, at the corner of Via di Monte Brianzo and just off Lungo Tevere Manzo. There is one aspect that makes this location unique in all of Rome. Thus, unique in the world. It is the only site which, looking West, points directly over the Piazza Pia and along the full length of the Via della Conciliazione.
