Razorblade Tears by S.A. Cosby (Flatiron; LJ Best Books, 2021)

Selected by the LibraryReads Advisory Board

"This compelling, violent thriller is another triumph for returning champ Cosby, whose Blacktop Wasteland was an LJ 2020 Best Book. Two men who’ve served time in prison, one Black and one white, find common ground when their married gay sons are murdered. The action-packed crime novel unites the men in vengeance, while confronting race, social class, and homophobia, issues that lead to redemption and understanding. Optioned for film." —Lesa Holstine
