Waterstones Says

Weaving themes of race and sexuality into a muscular, violent revenge thriller, the author of Blacktop Wasteland unites two ex-cons - one Black, one white - in an uneasy alliance to hunt down the killers of their sons.

Longlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger 2022

Longlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger 2022

A black father. A white father.
Two Murdered sons. A quest for vengeance.

Ike Randolph left jail fifteen years ago, with not so much as a speeding ticket since. But a Black man with cops at the door knows to be afraid.

Ike is devastated to learn his son Isiah has been murdered, along with Isiah's white husband, Derek. Though he never fully accepted his son, Ike is broken by his death.

Derek's father Buddy Lee was as ashamed of Derek being gay as Derek was of his father's criminal past. But Buddy Lee - with seedy contacts deep in the underworld - needs to know who killed his only child.

Desperate to do better by them in death than they did in life, two hardened ex-cons must confront their own prejudices about their sons - and each other - as they rain down vengeance upon those who hurt their boys.

A provocative revenge thriller and an achingly tender story of redemption, this novel is a ferocious portrait of grief; for those loved and lost, and for mistakes than can never truly be undone.

“Another brilliant read from Crosby”

I thought S.A. Cosby's novel Blacktop Wastelands was brilliant. His latest book, Razorblade Tears releases today - and I have to say it's even better imo.

Ike and Buddy Lee don't have much in common -... More

“Poetically ferocious storytelling”

This is a Southern Gothic revenge thriller of the most outstanding kind: violent, thoughtful, emotionally hard-hitting, and brilliant. Cosby writes with a poetic ferocity, and Razorblade Tears is a modern masterpiece.
