Synopsis: Brian J. Gail has written another heart pounding, page turner of a novel for Catholics who are straining to hear their Church's voice in what Pope John Paul II called the final confrontation between the Church and the anti Church, the Gospel and the anti Gospel. Motherless takes the reader on a riveting behind-the-scenes journey around the globe to the boardrooms and laboratories where the architects of The Life Sciences Revolution are preparing Mankind's Final Solution ... and into the confessionals and chanceries where the Church's response is being challenged. Father John Sweeney, pastor of a small catholic parish on Philadelphia's storied Main Line, is drawn into an apocalyptic vortex through the lives of parishioners Maggie Kealey, Michael Burns and Joe Delgado. Without warning they are ushered through the back door of the Revolution where they discover human embryos being created in laboratories and frozen in cryogenic freezers for a global black market. It is, however, when the Revolution's ultimate destination is revealed to one of the three that Fr. Sweeney is faced with his greatest test as a pastor guiding a soul to the Christian accountability to truth even in the face of potentially deadly consequences. In Motherless, best selling catholic author Brian J. Gail has created another spellbinding narrative that explores the ever more slippery slope of Man's technology and its existential threat to family and church. As in Fatherless, Gail's transcendent storytelling, scintillating dialogue and richly interwoven sub plots will leave readers breathless and hungry for more.
"Brian Gail's riveting and prophetic follow-up to 'Fatherless' is an explosive read. 'Motherless' is ripped from today's headlines. It demands that readers face the 'brave new world' that's upon us"
- Tim Drake, National Catholic Register
"Motherless has all the elements of another Catholic bestseller. It weaves together an intelligent analysis of current events, stories of real characters who confront familiar challenges, clever yet profound dialogue, and many layers of spiritual and human drama. No matter their state in life, readers will be offered the chance to think about, and pray about, our contemporary world in a whole new way."
-Genevieve Pollock, Assistant Editor, ZENIT News Agency
...Motherless is alive with vivid characters, wonderful dialogue and real issues. From start to finish you can t put it down...
- +Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Denver
Fiction has long served as a powerful medium for social criticism and for issuing warnings rooted in a profound concern for fundamental justice and moral truth. Are contemporary fiction writers up to the task? In Motherless, Brian J. Gail proves that he certainly is.
- Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence Princeton University
...Brian J. Gail s Motherless depicts the true essence of human embryonic stem cell experimentation and ingeniously intertwines science with a fiction thriller to expose it. Embryonic stem cell research is not about treating our loved ones who suffer from disease. It is ultimately about human cloning. The sheer boldness of Motherless frightens me...
- Dr. Theresa Deisher, Managing Partner, AVM Biotechnology
Brian J. Gail has masterfully and with startling accuracy told the story of our culture. Motherless is both heartbreaking and hilarious but most of all it powerfully exposes the cultural and spiritual battles my generation faces today... I couldn t put it down.

About the Author: Brian J. Gail was a schoolboy baseball phenom recruited by Division One universities and scouted by Major League baseball teams; he suffered a disabling shoulder injury early in his college career and was sent to the Philadelphia Phillies team doctor whose efforts to help him regain his exceptional pitching velocity were unsuccessful. Fueled by a white hot competitive fire and magnetic rhetorical gifts he rocketed to the top of the Madison Avenue advertising world in his mid 30's only to see his career derailed by a great moral business dilemma and a direct challenge to his Catholic faith. A gifted entrepreneur and CEO, he provided strategic marketing counsel to elite Fortune 500 corporations and directed a variety of non-profit boards focused on assisting the underprivileged in Philadelphia. Today, Brian J. Gail is a critically acclaimed author, a Knight of the Immaculate, a co-founder of three catholic classical academies, a patent holder, and a highly sought after speaker on matters of faith and family.
