Ciudad Juarez, MX: A flash of light. An opened cantina doorway. One tiny hand holding desperately to the frame, clinging to the smallest hope of avoiding a now certain fate...
Only sixteen weeks into his military career, US Army PFC Zeb Dalton finds himself in the border town turned warzone on a dare, slumped across a sticky bartop in the city's notorious Cantina Rosa. Youthful bravado fades as Dalton witnesses an act so inhumane it stirs long-suppressed parts of his soul, helping him set aside his own failings to come to the aid of innocents.
Ramon Vazquez keeps the barrister's sign lit over the doorway of his dilapidated law office but the man hasn't concerned himself with issues of true justice in decades. Called on by an unknown, presumptuous young American soldier, will he cast aside deep layers of disillusionment to make a difference again in his troubled city?
Great back story read for When Totems Fall! Stewart develops Zeb Dalton's character and confronts a very real issue that pervades our society that has been hidden and ignored for far too long.
Loved the action, the message, the characters! Favorite book from Stewart so far. Couldn't put it down.
