Master of Falconhurst (Falconhurst #3)

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.

In this great new bestseller, Kyle Onstott unfolds the turbulent dram

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.

I call it historical fiction because I don't have any place else to put it, but it's definitely not terribly historical. It's a story of slave times, but with lots of liberties taken with the human relationships. Or so I suspect at least.
