Blake Crochet, his wife, Jenna, and son, Adam are taken prisoner in their own home–forced to go about their everyday routines as if psychopaths weren’t watching their every…single…move at ALL times. The violence was quite brutal at points, but what was even worse was the mental and emotional abuse present.
The characterization in this novel was fantastic! I felt I “knew” each individual in the story, and was easily transported along with them in their horrifying ordeal. I’ll even admit to getting actual shivers a time or two. Even the more far-fetched scenes here were believable after reading the chilling things the captors were capable of.
Be prepared to finish this novel in one or two sittings, as it was nearly impossible to find a point in the story to “disengage” from the characters’ plight. Even when not reading, I found myself constantly thinking back to their situation.
And yes, I did get up to double check the locks more than a few times . . .
An emotionally brutal read from beginning to end–I’m really looking forward to what this author comes up with in the future.
Twisted characters tormenting their victims mentally, physically and emotionally; this one is not for the squeamish. Housebroken was very well-written. The characters had depth. The story-line was interesting, to the point of me not wanting to stop reading, even when I needed to get other things done. As I read it, I continually put myself in the main characters, Blake Crotchet, place. What would I have done if put into that situation? Would I have acted differently? How far can I be pushed? To me, that makes for a good book.
Deep topics from a deep author. Very well done.

I got this free through the Kindle Scout program after having been selected for publication. Recommended for horror fans.
I would describe the story as being perfect for someone who can't handle the sunny optimism of A Song of Ice and Fire!
One star minus cause bad editing of the book. Lot of typos and some times it was impossible to understand the meaning of some phrases for me as foreigner.
As the novel ramps up, the twists and turns come with the relentless fury of a Bruce Lee attack. The Behrg writes in a highly stylistic fashion that finds metaphors in the smallest of life's detail. He also does a bang-up job of satirizing the world of the affluent dot.commers that habituate Southern California. This psychological thriller is filled with enough violence and gore to fill three books, and contains elements of horror that would make Stephen King cringe. This author writes with confidence and pizzaz, possessing an astute knowledge of the terrain he obviously enjoys scorching. He is a great new author to watch.
