"Forty Acres is an absolutely enthralling thriller, one that also has the capacity to challenge the readers' perceptions of right and wrong. With supreme confidence and a mastery of storytelling, the author asks hard questions, provides no easy answers... But delivers maximum suspense. It's an unforgettable work by an amazing new voice. Easily my favorite of the year."--John Ridley, Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Twelve Years a Slave
