Far away in Belfast, Lori's half brother, Shaun O'Brien, lies gasping beneath his sister's bullet-riddled body. Kelly's death so angers Shaun that he is ripe pickings for Hugh Devlin, an old school I.R.A. man. Little by little, Shaun learns from terrorism's best and his life runs a path of death and destruction, eventually drawing the attention of anti-terrorist officer Peter Doyle.
Meanwhile, Lori finds some happiness beneath the Florida sun in the company of Bruce and Roy, two rich brothers from Australia who seem determined to enjoy life in all of its facets. Unfortunately, a storm casts their luxury yacht into the world of Vigo Tortosa, a drug dealing entrepreneur who will stop at nothing to keep his illegal operation beneath the eyes of the law. In a cruel twist of fate, Shaun is sent to eliminate Lori and Bruce, but something stops him. Lori's face seems achingly familiar.
Lori and her new husband, Bruce MacDonald, find a new life on his father's Australian cattle ranch and Lori is ecstatic when her brother Michael joins them on the station. Michael, however, feels a higher calling and soon joins the seminary, eventually becoming a Roman Catholic priest. His first assignment: Belfast.
In a swirling vortex of violence, Shaun seeks out Peter Doyle, a man who stands for all he is against. Unfortunately, Shaun is wounded in the crossfire and stumbles into a nearby church, coming face to face with the new Father Michael. Aiding and abetting a known fugitive does not sit well with the local authorities and Father Michael is imprisoned in Maize Prison, one of the most horrific and degrading places on Earth.
Lori plays a dangerous game as she tries to free her brother, Michael, calling upon past favors and playing one dangerous player against another. Can one woman triumph against the odds as the growing web of terror closes around her? Or will Michael, like Christ, allow himself to be nailed upon the cross of power so that others might live? Right Hand Up to God will find the reader frantically turning the pages as a tsunami of excitement and intrigue, desperation and terror race headlong toward the tumultuous conclusion.
The book grabs you from the beginning and won't let you rest. Lori has to raise a newborn, at the age of ten and fight off the drunken bouts and the unfortunate attack on her young body. What happens next is... well; you'll have to buy the book. I don't want to give away the secrets of this suspenseful story. It will hold your attention until the very end.
Your heart beats with the explosions of bullets and the chaos of war, when Shaun O'Brien risks his young life as he constantly faces The Royal Ulster Constabulary of Inspector Pete Doyle.
Lori grows up fast in a world of high society, drugs and death. When she asks for the help of Shaun to save her brother, the climax grows to an explosion of love and loss.
I really enjoyed reading this, and hope you like it too.
