Private detective Lucas Rook returns in "Hands of Vengeance, still haunted by the murder of his twin brother. Facing business setbacks as his commercial client goes bankrupt and a drug-dealing dentist kills himself at the breakfast table, the former homicide detective takes an assignment to investigate workplace violations in The Bottle House, an upstate New York factory. This routine case soon becomes a confrontation with domestic terrorists who are insanely committed to taking revenge on the United States for the influx of immigrants and for 9-11. The Brothers of the Half Moon are committed to mass murder with a chemical, "Palms of Christ", 6,000 times more deadly than cyanide and completely undetectable. As the terrorists' poisoned-death threat spreads, Rook finds himself in a brutal fight in the Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown. There also is a confrontation with the mysterious Web Clark, a specialist from the government front Pendle Institute, which views the terrorists as a reprise of the anthrax fiasco.
