Rory is born in poverty on a Caribbean island. To give him a chance at a good life, his parents send him to an aunt and uncle in Brooklyn. Rory's dream is to return and rescue his parents from the "hellish island". For sixteen years his dream drives him to excel in everything he does. He returns to the island, but he's too late. Heartbroken, Rory researches Irish history and discovers 50,000 Irish, including his ancestors, were sold into slavery in the seventeenth century and now only 400 are left on the island. They are the Red Legs of Barbados. Seven years later, prominent British citizens in London, New York, and Dublin, are being murdered in daring and horrific fashion. Elite police teams in each city suspect Rory, but their evidence is thin. Will they catch him? Is he seeking more than revenge? Is there any set of circumstances where it's possible to feel empathy for a criminal? Curse of Our Father is not your grandfather's revenge story. It's intriguing, romantic, thought provoking and hauntingly unforgettable.

About the Author

John Michael Gallagher was born and raised in Philadelphia. While he was a senior in High School, he met the love of his life. They married after graduation. The plan was to be a history teacher and track coach. But, like John Lennon said, "Life is what happens while you're making plans." John became a systems officer at the bank, had three children, a mortgage, two cars, made good money and spent every dime. There was no going back. His career in banking, technology and marketing blossomed, as did his family. He was part of the five-person team that created the largest ATM network in the country and launched national credit and debit card processing services. The bank acquired a card processing company in Atlanta and asked John to move to run marketing for the new company. He never became a high school track coach, but he fit in coaching kids in track & field for twenty years. One morning he woke up and realized that until then he'd done what he had to do, and it was now possible to do what he wanted to do. He sold his company and began a career as an author. Experience in finance, sports, and life makes John's writing richer, layered, and more believable. He writes all his work for publication and adaptation
