When Martin met Damon after his first big case, he never thought the changes that would be happening to his life. Damon will offer him a friendship with the most powerful black men of the world and an entrance to a secret society.
Will he be ready for all the surprising things they will show him?

Anna sighed. "I just have this feeling that after tonight.... everything will be different".

I was surprised about this book plot, it's not usual to show and explain slavery, but a very interesting way to imagine how the black people can still feel rage about all the inconceivable things all their ancestors had lived.
It's a controversial book; the things they made are terrible, but don't they suffer the same? Do they have the right to still be furious after all these years? I, as a white female, would I ever be able to understand what they have suffered? I am not trying to defend them, the things they make in the book are horrible. But in the past they suffered that from white hands, that was truly real.
After reading this book, I have more questions than answers, the first of them is: How a human being can make so much pain to another?
