#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.

A thought provoking story
I had read prior comments that suggested this was propaganda for alternative lifestyles.
That’s not what this is at all, it is a story of
fathers’ love and (ultimate) acceptance of their children.
The only thing that kept it from a 5 is the narration. There are black and white characters and I found it difficult to follow who was “speaking” Perhaps a bit more exaggerated approach would help(?)
So very good
One of the best stories I’ve heard!
How has this not been made into a movie yet. Will definitely read again.
Absolutely loved everything about this one! The narrator is incredible!
