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.
