#1 New York Times bestselling author

A Black father. A white father. Two murdered sons. A quest for vengeance.

Ike Randolph has been out of jail for fifteen years, with not so much as a speeding ticket in all that time. But a Black man with cops at the door knows to be afraid.

The last thing he expects to hear is that his son Isiah has been murdered, along with Isiah’s white husband, Derek. Ike had never fully accepted his son but is devastated by his loss.

Derek’s father Buddy Lee was almost as ashamed of Derek for being gay as Derek was ashamed his father was a criminal. Buddy Lee still has contacts in the underworld, though, and he wants to know who killed his boy.

Ike and Buddy Lee, two ex-cons with little else in common other than a criminal past and a love for their dead sons, band together in their desperate desire for revenge. In their quest to do better for their sons in death than they did in life, hardened men Ike and Buddy Lee will confront their own prejudices about their sons and each other, as they rain down vengeance upon those who hurt their boys.

Provocative and fast-paced, S. A. Cosby's Razorblade Tears is a story of bloody retribution, heartfelt change - and maybe even redemption.

Action packed book. Definitely different than my usual reads but overall enjoyed it while I was listening to it. Many characters with small parts so sometimes I noticed the narrator's voice didn't vary too much which made me go back and listen again to make sure I was listening to the right character. Not sorry I listened to it at all!

Hard to listen to the daily violence in the characters lives. Think reading the book might have been preferable

Such a great book! This book is full of suspense and action yet keeps you laughing with lines like he squeezed me so hard I thought my nuts would burst. There is talk of a movie based on this book. If done right, this movie would definitely be a blockbuster! Must read!!!
