If you looked at the cover of "Forty Acres", you might think it's a historical novel. You would be wrong. "Forty Acres" is actually a modern unputdownable thriller about a brilliant young black lawyer who's invited on a white water rafting trip by a secret society of wealthy black men at the top of their professions. What he's expecting is a wild ride on the river; what he gets is a wild ride involving an evil that had gone to history. No, this isn't a remake of "Deliverance", but it's a great adventure for fans of John Grisham and James Patterson. You'll never look at the reparations issue the same way again.

"Befriended by some of America's most successful and wealthy black men, a talented African-American lawyer working out of a Queens storefront accepts their invitation to a weekend getaway only to learn that they are part of a secret organisation that would promote white slavery."
