Shadowkiller ends the trilogy involving the family of Allison Taylor, now Allison MacKenna. Allison met her husband Mack when she lived in Manhattan and her apartment was across the hall from Mack and his wife. Mack’s wife was killed in the 9-11 tragedy and Allison’s friend was murdered in their apartment building.
Allison and Mack eventually married and moved to the suburbs but they found that life was not to be smooth for the couple and their family. Someone is stalking the family and at times even Allison suspects the person causing the problems might be Mack. Eventually the truth is found out but not before even the children have a very close call.
Life has gone back to normal for the family and Allison has even agreed to make a trip to the Midwest to visit her brother and his wife. Allison’s father left when she was young and her mother killed herself with liquor and drugs. It is a very large step for Allison to agree to travel back to the Midwest.
But the MacKenna family aren’t alone on the trip. Mack’s wife, who was thought to have died in the 9-11 tragedy, is alive and determined to have a show-down with Allison. The connection between the two women is finally revealed in this exciting conclusion. With the intervention of Detective Rocko Manzillo, who has knowledge of the MacKenna’s background, Allison might just get out alive.
