books, both well written, and more fully develop Payne and Jones.
I do like his protagonists, Payne and Jones. He does pretty well a recapping their history in each book. Some authors mess up a book doing that.
Seemingly random people are kidnapped throughout the United... States and brought to a small island off of Louisiana to a place known only as the Plantation. This deadly place is run by a group calling themselves the Posse and they proceed to torture, kill and sell into slavery their victims. I figured out the premise long before 'the twist' was revealed but this in no way took away from the enjoyment I had reading the novel. Of course there has to be a hero --- in this case it is millionaire Jonathan Payne and his P.I. friend David Jones. When Jon's girlfriend is one of those kidnapped, he and D.J. head down to New Orleans to follow their only lead. They get the tables turned on them and end up themselves as victims of the Plantation.
However, the Posse does not realize that Payne and Jones are former members of a Special Forces team known as the Maniacs. The two of them enact revenge that makes "Death Wish" look like Sesame Street. A terrific novel --- to give away any more would spoil it. Read this book!
32-year-old Robert Edwards, a ski instructor from Icy River, Colorado, is hunted down like an animal and taken hostage. At Longview Regional Hospital in Longview, Colorado, 33-year-old Tonya Edwards, who is eight months pregnant, walks into an elevator. When the doors shut, a man walks up and sticks a needle in Tonya's neck, puts her in a wheel chair, and rolls her to a waiting van. In Mars, Pennsylvania, Ariane Walker is dragged from her apartment and whisked away. Many disappearances are taking place in different cities. To Jonathon Payne and his best friend David Jones this is personal because Araine Walker is Jon's girlfriend, and they will do any thing to get her back.
The characters are multi-faceted with plenty of soul to them. Jon and David are my personal favorites; the author really lets you feel the close relationship and how special and rare that is these days.
THE PLANTATION takes you to Colorado, Pennsylvania, New Orleans, and Nigeria on a wonderful rough and tumble ride with many twists and turns. I was breathless wanting to read every last word slowly so I wouldn't miss a single thing. When I reached the ending, it was phenomenal, everything was all tied up into a nice tight bow.
This is one of those books that I couldn't stop thinking about or how awesome that it was. Thank goodness that Mr. Kuzneski is working on another Jonathon Payne novel. Three cheers.

I found the story line fascinating; yet a dark reminder of our past - especially if it runs close to fact (which apparently it does).Published 5 months ago by jerry
