SHADOW HOUSE follows two men who share a terrible secret that, through a quirk of fate, saved one, but damned the other. These seemingly unconnected lives begin interweaving between five-year-old PJ McAvoy, in 1920’s Massachusetts, and present-day family man, Aaron, when he purchases an antique toolbox. Through Aaron’s “visions” into PJ’s past—from the childhood injury that precipitates his paranormal ability—through WWII combat years, every tragedy befalling PJ, or act of mayhem inflicted, PJ holds Aaron responsible, even though Aaron hasn’t been born for fifty years. To save Aaron's wife, kids, and the spiritual teenage girl ally from PJ’s vendetta, Aaron must learn the secret that binds them and how to master his innate paranormal abilities. PJ’s plans, however, go beyond mere revenge, where his own death is not an obstacle, and Aaron’s demise will be but a footnote.
