One son vows to take up his father's mantle and give himself over to the Red Hand. The other will dedicate his life to stopping him. When the Red Hand surfaces in England, its schemes threaten to tear the country apart. Here two brothers will have their final showdown, and the Festini legacy will be settled, for good or evil.
