Razorblade Tears: A Novel

We rated this book:


The loss of a loved one is a hard pill to swallow, even more when it’s unexpected. Ike Randolph and Buddy Lee Jenkins are united in grief, having lost their sons to murder. Their sons, Isiah and Derek, were married and had an adopted daughter together. Yet, Buddy Lee and Ike’s intolerance of their Sons led to them not even knowing each other until after the funeral. Ike and Buddy Lee go their separate ways, wracked with guilt over what they said and what more they should’ve done when their sons were alive.

The investigation of their sons’ deaths moves slowly, and Buddy Lee approaches Ike with a plan to investigate on their own. Both men have a past they left behind, but their desire to avenge their sons leads them to take the law into their own hands. The deaths were not random, and the path to answers will be long and winding.

Razorblade Tears is an impressive new entry from S.A. Cosby, which combines mystery, action, and emotional drama in one walloping gut punch. The plot progresses swiftly and never diminishes until the conclusion. The core of this wonderful book lay in its humanity of the protagonists and their desire to get justice.
