4.0 out of 5 stars Dated, but still excellent 17 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a fine piece of dramatic work. It is certainly a little outdated, and areas of it are very melodramatic. But on the whole, it succeeds due to interesting characters and a plot dealing with issues that are not often approached in the theater. Dr. Cook is the only doctor in a small town, and he has been using his power to "remove" unpleasant or harmful members of the community. When his surrogate son Jimmy arrives on the scene, the two engage in a battle of morals. The facinating part of this play is that there is nothing clear cut about it. Levin manages to argue both sides of the issue convincingly and engagingly. Take a look if you are interested in an intriguing if little known play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story 26 Mar 2010
By LisaMC - Published on Amazon.com
I have not read this book, but I saw the TV movie starring Bing Crosby in one of his last roles back in the 70s. It's a chilling story about how we can rationalize ourselves into doing morally repugnant things. As far as I can tell, the movie has never been released on any type of home media, but if it were, it and the book would make good companion pieces.

This play is a great peice of work and was written very well. It is a good idea to use for projects and has an old felling to it. I rate this book [four stars]. If you never wead this book before i suggest you do, "it's a story most ages can enjoy". :)
