Like Mandingo and Drum, Master of Falconhurst shatters the genteel image of the Old South and lays bare the savage truth about slavery and slave-breeding...about plantations like Falconhurst where the cash crop was black flesh, where human beings were stripped bare in the marketplace and sold like cattle.

The Southern gothic carnage-ridden plantation porn crack that is the Falconhurst saga continues on the fast track to Crazytown in this last of the Onstott-penned installments.
