Publisher's Summary

The first to disappear is a ski instructor in the secluded mountains of Colorado. Hours later, a pregnant woman is abducted from a crowded hospital. Two places, two incidents, a single motive. And so it begins....One by one, in cities across America, people of all ages are taken from their homes, their cars, their lives. But these aren't random kidnappings. They're crimes of passion, planned and researched years in advance with a singular objective in mind: Revenge. Ariane Walker is one of the victims, dragged from her apartment with few clues to follow. The police said there's little they can do for her, but that isn't good enough for her boyfriend, Jonathon Payne. With the help of his best friend, Payne gives chase, hoping a tip about New Orleans somehow pays off. Together, the duo slowly uncovers the mystery of Ariane's abduction and the shocking truth behind the South's most violent secret: The Plantation.

This book was a totally unexpected surprise

What did you love best about The Plantation?

This had a great plot, ditto for story telling, characters etc. after reading some of the not so great reviews I had this in my wish list for about a year and finally decided to give it a try. So sorry I waited so long. This book had everything going for it. I will definitely be purchasing more from this author.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Oh yes! The brutality of the acts carried out by these kidnappers in the name of revenge was horrible. Not too horrible to listen to for entertainment purposes though.

Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Dick Hill is one of my FAVORITE narrators and as always did a fantastic performance!

Incredible Story

This was an awesome book. The author did much research to put it all together. Writing is one thing and research also for accuracy of subject content is totally appreciated. I've read one other book by this author and it was good. This one was awesome. Some parts were hard to emotionally deal with but excellent. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys murder mysteries and thrillers. Dick Hill is also my favorite reader. Should have been an actor. He can change dialects and accents 4 times in a paragraph with ease. I sometimes search by narrators name to see what's new. This one is on audible only a few days and is a very good book. I will read it again sometime for sure.
