Razorblade Tears

"I ain't ashamed of who I am. I'd like to think my boy picked that up from me." ~ 84%

Ike Randolph has been out of jail for 15 years now. He swore to live a model citizen life with not even a speeding ticket since being free. But it's never a good thing when police show up at a Black man's door unexpected. They deliver the news that Ike's son, Isiah, has been murdered alongside his white husband, Derek. Derek's father is suffering and angry. Buddy Lee is a whiskey-drinking redneck with ties to the underworld just itching to get revenge. 

This unlikely pair joins forces to hunt and avenge the people who murdered their gay sons. With nothing in common besides being ex-cons and a fierce love of their dead sons, they band together for bloody revenge and confront their prejudices. This novel takes off with a gunshot bang and doesn't stop with the action suspense until the very end. Damn, it's good!

"Each drop felt like it was slicing his face open like a razorblade." ~ 7%

S.A. Cosby created a scenario that could unfortunately happen to two fathers in real life. The plot was not a stretch, making it quite an emotional read. Can you imagine hurting so deep that tears feel like razors? My heart went out to Ike and Buddy Lee in their quest to avenge their sons' senseless murders and bring justice by any means necessary.

Razorblade Tears would make an awesomesauce movie! I need to see the dangerous dads in action on the big screen. With characters names like Uncle Remus, Mini-Fro, Mr. Get Down, Tangerine, Light-skinned, Buddy Lee Jenkins and Ike Randolph, you can expect a colorful cast. TV/Movie Directors, contact me for suggestions—I know just the perfect actors for these roles and willing to offer my MasterClass screenwriting skills!  

"Yeah, she's a defenseless damsel in goddamn distress." ~ 66%

Never a dull chapter in this new novel either. S.A. Cosby expertly weaved a tale of redemption with memorable scenes. Sometimes a forced alliance doesn't work in fiction. However, it adds an unpredictable element here. This is no good-cop-bad-cop duet. Buddy Lee and Ike are on a mission; may angels help whomever is in their way. Razorblade Tears is fast-paced so clear your plans for a weekend to get lost in its gritty pages. So worth it!

Happy Belated Pub Day, S.A. Cosby! Razorblade Tears is now available.
