Jack O'Keefe's powerful and many-layered novel, BROTHER SECRET AGENT/THE PLOT TO KILL F.D.R., is a non-stop adventure that begins in the serenity of Dingle Bay and ends in the harsh landscape of Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen. The central character, Mick Slattery, is an orphan left in the care of his Uncle Dan, an unscrupulous, uncompromising I.R.A. member who lives to destroy the British. Raised and guided by his Uncle, Mick matures into a young man capable of handling guns, managing self-defense (boxing) and swimming turbulent waters. Tough, resilient, intelligent, Mick impresses Uncle Dan as a deserving candidate for what may well be a civilization-splattering assignment: the assassination of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his prestigious colleague, Winston Churchill.
Manipulated, deceived and exploited by Uncle Dan, Mick enters the world of Hell's Kitchen as a student at Power Memorial Academy. The I.R.A. Cell in the neighborhood schemes with Uncle Dan to set the stage for the eventual attack on the President and Churchill. The unsuspecting youngster Mick will be deployed as the "hit man."
O'Keefe maintains the tension created by the I.R.A. scheme while following Mick's introduction into the entirely new culture of the United States. With insight and sensitivity, O'Keefe creates in Mick Slattery a young man of conscience, courage and conviction whose own life--like the lives of his new associates--is threatened by the brutal designs of the I.R.A.
The plot thickens and tightens when Mick joins the Christian Brothers Novitiate in Ulster County's Hudson Valley, a choice that brings him even closer to Springwood, Roosevelt's Hudson River Estate.
