Publishers Weekly
Kuzneski's novel is swiftly paced but so sophomoric and offensive it makes Birth of a Nation look like a plea for racial understanding. An army of militant black men kidnap the white descendants of slave owners and transport them to a secret island compound. There, the girls and women are beaten and raped and the men sadistically tortured before being shipped to Africa to serve as slaves to black families. But the militants make a big mistake and kidnap Jon Payne's love. He and his best bud, David Jones (one of only two token heroic black characters), were part of a bloodthirsty “elite military fighting team.” They enlist their teammates for a take-no-prisoners attack on the island. Though this nonsense doesn't deserve a first-class rendition, that's what it gets from Dick Hill, who delivers it with enough enthusiasm and performance skill to make the irresponsible material seem thrilling enough to be almost acceptable. A Berkley paperback. (July)
author - James Patterson
"THE PLANTATION is a rip-roaring page-turner based on an ingenious idea. No reader will easily forget it."
author - Lee Child
"Excellent! High stakes, fast action, vibrant characters, and a very, very original plot concept. Not to be missed!"
author - Nelson DeMille
"Wear your running shoes when you read THE PLANTATION. This is the most action-packed, swiftly paced, and tightly plotted novel I've read in a long time."
author - James Rollins
"Chris Kuzneski displays a remarkable sense of suspense and action in THE PLANTATION. A riveting ride from start to finish as an ex-Special Forces soldier searches for the kidnappers of his girlfriend, leading to an international manhunt that will leave readers breathless and up much too late. Don't miss it!"
author - Douglas Preston
"THE PLANTATION is a powerful read with a great plot twist. Right from the opening scenes the book takes off, and all I can say is, hang on for the ride."
