“Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.” – William Shakespeare

A teenage girl arrives home—bloody and semi-conscious—from a neighborhood party at the home of the most prominent and affluent attorney in Brookfield.

The girl’s father calls on ex-military, hometown hero, Mac MacKenna, to investigate. One catch—No police until he’s found solid evidence.

As Mac builds his suspect list based on who else attended the party he learns parties at the attorney’s home aren’t so innocent.

The more Mac digs, the less he likes what teenagers do in their free time. He learns rich kids get away with more than their lower-class peers.

If you like fast-paced suspenseful stories with wealthy, powerful people, murder and small town gossip you’ll enjoy Unknown Alliance.

Follow Mac as he checks names off the suspect list until there’s only one name left.

“That which does not kill us makes us stronger.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

Close your eyes and remember when you were a high school senior. Playing sports, hanging out with friends, dances and maybe—if you were lucky—dating. Life was relaxed and carefree, right? Not for young Mac MacKenna.

His father is an alcoholic. His mother is an enabler. His sister is a moody nursing school attendee who, like Mac, hopes to move away from home as soon as possible.

Before Mac can escape his parents’ home, he goes head-to-head with his father in an attempt to make life better for his mother and grandfather.

As high school graduation day and freedom are within reach tragedy strikes Mac’s family. There’s only one person to blame for the unthinkable crime—his father—Mac vows to get to the truth.
