Avenging Allison won a first prize in the 2018 Florida Writers Association Literary Awards competition.
Terror comes in on little cat feet.
In a museum in southern Illinois, an exhibit of erotic art opens. Some people are furious.
Meanwhile, in the Shawnee National Forest, south of the town, a 10-year-old boy believes he sees a man falling in the sky. Nothing better to do on a Saturday, a reporter—a man named Morrison—goes looking.
None of this seems connected.
Then, somebody blows up the art museum.
Dead in the rubble is Morrison's lover.
"Collateral damage" say the police.
Then, Morrison's daughter Allison is hit by a car.
Sparks from a bonfire of hate, greed, lust, and fury light up the sky in this second Morrison mystery by Tom Bender.
