Every year the Justice family hosts a one-night haunted house in their home. The people who visit it are amazed by the reality of the horror scenes set up by the family. No one can figure out how they make it so realistic!

Justice is the perfect title for this book. Each "previewer" of the horror show gets what he/she deserves. Sort of like the movie "Seven".

I figured out what was going on about 20% through the book. It's a great read nonetheless.

BEWARE! The book contains graphic, gory content. Not for the weak.

"House of Justice" reads like a rough draft of a junior high creative writing assignment. I wish the author had reread it and cleaned it up before publishing it. It has some promise, but the author just didn't seem to care enough to nurture the story beyond an idea.

The writing is poor. In the first paragraph the house in which the story takes place is described and then we're told that it looks "scary", even though there was nothing in the description that would necessarily be scary. We know that the house needs painting and some of the wood is splintered. It's a bit of a fixer-upper, then, but not frightening. Further we're told that scary looking houses are usually haunted. I'm not sure why this was mentioned, since the house in the story doesn't seem to be haunted. If it is, the author didn't mention anything about ghosts.

The third paragraph is completely pointless. We know that there is an amusement park that is in competition against the House of Justice but they fail to draw the crowds, but we're not really told why.

At any rate, we meet the Justice family, most of whom seem to be named for angels. We're told that they are "odd" and then told that one is a butcher, one is a dentist, one is a beautician and one helps around the house. I'm not sure what is odd about any of that.

So, the story goes on and the Justice family starts torturing people in fairly predictable ways (fat guy likes to eat - make him eat his own flesh - mwah-ha-ha-ha). It's one of those stories in which we're supposed to feel that the victims deserve their punishments due to them being overweight or vein or neglectful of their teeth.

And this is the haunted house. People come in and see real people being tortured. And no one calls the police.

This short story requires readers to use their imagination and their interpretive ability, and the more they do so, the more they will enjoy the story, for this story requires readers to interpret what they are reading. The great Argentinean writer Jorge Borges said: there are two people who write a story, the writer and the reader. With this story, different readers will "compose" the story differently.

The story focuses on a family named Justice (Readers need to decide why Bivona chose this name). One member is a butcher, one a beautician, one a dentist, and the fourth, a girl who helps around the house (why these professions/activities?). They had a remarkable horror show every Halloween that attracted many people, lines went around the block. They also had a pre-Halloween screening that only selected people could attend, but no attendees could be found who could tell what happened during these screenings. We read of four people, corresponding to the four Justices, who were invited to come for pre-screenings, each alone, on four separate occasions. Each was met and dealt with by one member of the Justice family (Are these four of the seven "Deadly Sins," and if so, what did they do wrong? Was what happened appropriate to what they did wrong? Why did the Justices feel they should do what they did? Why did what happened happen on Halloween?)

This short story was written reasonably well and gets quickly into a rather graphic and gory set of scenes. Once a year this special house is opened up to visitors coming to see the haunted house and it's displays.

But all is not as it seems and WHY do those exhibits look so real? That blood is very realistic right? Yeah, it's gory and bloody but it's such a short read that you don't get a lot of it.

I like short stories but felt this one was a little TOO short, even another 20 pages might have added some more depth. Very hard to get a strong story going over a few pages.

It was okay, it was a Kindle freebie so I shall not complain. Read better and read much worse.

Why is it that authors think it is okay to write a short story, then pad their books out with excerpts from their other books? Newsflash: It doesn't make me want to buy your other books, it makes me mad that 40% is story, 60% is advertising.

The House of Justice itself wasn't all that brilliant. I liked the way the family set up their haunted house, and gathered the exhibits for their next one, but the why isn't really explained at all.
