He thought he saw them.
And it made his stomach turn.
Almost as much as his anger at being unable to act.
Ciudad Juarez, MX.
A flash of light. An opened cantina doorway.
A tiny hand clings to its frame and the slimmest of hopes...
Sixteen weeks into his military career US Army PFC Zeb Dalton finds himself in the notorious Cantina Rosa, all because of a ridiculous barracks dare. Slumped across a sticky bartop, he catches a fading glimpse of pre-teen girls being pulled into the alley.
Hours later Dalton wakes, enraged--equally at what he saw and the rank stupidity that kept him from doing anything about it.
But the sight of a discarded pink tennis shoe beside a reeking dumpster clears his head. With far more heart than experience, the young soldier commits himself to the innocents' release, whatever that may require.
Time is of the essence for five young girls.
Dalton had better get his act together, now.

The story takes place in 1982. It was a couple of years before I was born. People love the 80s, and so it seemed like a good idea to turn back the clock a bit. Cuba after the revolution entered a type of time bubble. The world changes and flows, while that country is stagnant, and never changing. Even now, with the supposed changes, it still feels like the place has not changed one bit. As for the characters, they are not real people with their names changed. That would just be lazy writing if you ask me. Think of it like putting all the ingredients in a pot, and then stirring, and stirring them to form a soup. This book is like a soup. If you like soup, then you will enjoy it. If you do not, then at least you bought my soup, and so I get to eat cheesecake for another day. What is important is that you find this book remotely entertaining. It is a bit shorter than some of my other works, but I putted the same effort as I did in some of my other works. The title was the thing I gave the most thought. I wanted to make it something simple, and unassuming. Eventually, I wiggled it down to just The House. If The House manages to scare you even a little bit, then I may have some hope as a horror writer. If not, I hope it makes you feel a little sometime, even if that feeling is just mild amusement. Now, sit back and enjoy my new book.
