Summary
It's present day and slavery exists in four southern states, called The Hard Four. Victor is a young black man working for the government as a bounty hunter tracking down runaway slaves. His latest case, locating a slave named Jackdaw, unwittingly forces Victor into the middle of a conspiracy between his own government and the Hard Four. It is in the middle of this dangerous mission that Victor slowly begins to remember his own horrible past--and then must decide how to act out his future.
Critique
A thought-provoking and original novel that is suspenseful and well-written.
