I generally like the Payne and Jones books. I don't think they're written very well, but the plot is usually good enough to redeem them. However, this book is just plain sick. I read the first several chapters, and was finally so grossed out that I quit. It's about blacks turning the tables on whites and visiting all the cruelty they received at white people's hands on them. That's not a bad premise, but the sadism described is more like a sick fantasy than something instructive.

The reversal of roles of slave and master really caught my attention and Kuzneski made it work, and work well. This was my first intro to his work and I have since read two more of the Payne and Jones
books, both well written, and more fully develop Payne and Jones.

This first novel by Chris Kuzneski seemed a little confusing yet contrived at first, but soon had my full attention as I got deeper into it, wondering how the main characters & the hostages were going to survive & escape from their captors. It had an ingenious plot for an early novel by Kuzneski.

Kuzneski writes good thrillers and this book is his first example of his talent. However, the choice of subject, slavery, racism, and white slavery, are very sensitive subjects that I believe he used in an insensitive manner. While his intention to bring these subjects to the readers' attention may have been noble it was lost in the excessive violence portrayed.

Not my favorite of Kuzneski's books, but OK. Since it was his first, he gets some slack here.
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.

Quite simply one of the most unique and well-written thrillers I have read in years. Chris Kuzneski's debut novel, THE PLANTATION, grabs you by the throat in the first chapter and never lets up.

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!

I began reading this at the behest of one of my other favorite authors, Boyd Morrison. I entered this experience with no expectations, and I was pleasantly surprised. Kuzneskki has skills. Entertaining, fun, and a unique plot line. I will definitely read more from Kuzneski soon.

I have to start off by saying that I loved THE PLANTATION.
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.
