This is a pretty hair-raising book. Keeps you on the edge of your seat. It does get to the point you think "Good Grief! What more can happen?"

This book is a nonstop thrill ride from page one! It start with a chase and doesn't let up until the last page. After my Dad and I both read and loved it, I made it one of my staff pick's at work and we can barely keep it on the shelf! We're constantly reordering more copies to keep up with the demand...it's also made Mr. Kuzneski's books sell just as fast. If you enjoy action and adventure, thrill and chills, take a trip to "The Plantation" with Payne and Jones if you dare!

If you ever read Frank Yerby who wrote mostly about the South during the time of plantations and slavery then this one is revenge for those days. Keeps you turning the pages to find out what happens next and something is happening all the time--very good. Be sure to read the 'foreward' before the first chapter and author's note at the end--very interesting.

This book was a very entertaining read. Full of action and suspense and a few good twists. I loved the relationship between Payne and Jones. I'm now looking forward to the rest of the series.

This particular book isn't a "whodunit" type of mystery as the reader finds out quite soon who is running the Plantation and kidnapping their "slaves." However, don't let that turn you away as how Payne and his best friend from his Army days hunt down these horrible kidnappers is really where the story begins. Full of action, this book doesn't disappoint.

At the end of the book is a brief dialog with Chris Kuzneski, the author. He discusses his research and why he uses the descriptive scenes in the interactions with the slave owners and slaves. He states how he has gotten mail from people who complain that the descriptions made them ill and all I could think was, "Really? In what world do you live in...especially in today's society of terrorism, hate crimes, drugs, and gang violence?" Those people who have/are complaining need to go back and hide under the rock they crawled out of because life is messy, ugly, and, well, it's hell on earth. In other words, if you can't stomach a little descriptive violence, why in the world did you choose to read a murder mystery in the first place?!
