PRAISE FOR S. A. COSBY:
The very definition of a white-knuckle ride
Cosby's talents for pungent dialogue and Chandler-esque phrase-making were praised in his previous novel,.. and they're evident again in this pulsating follow-up
It's a rare trick to combine violence with social commentary, but Cosby pulls it off
Raw, powerful and pacey, Razorblade Tears more than fulfils the promise of Cosby's superb debut
Utterly brilliant....Beautiful, violent, operatic, relevant, poignant, gripping & important. Masterful.
One of the most muscular, distinctive, grab-you-by-both-ears voices in American crime fiction.
An excellent, gritty novel about how eventually, all sins must be reckoned with...The action is nonstop and Titus has real depth...Layered. Dark. True.
S. A. Cosby's novels always hit the grand slam of crime fiction; unstoppable momentum, gripping intrigue and deep character with a hard and telling look at culture and society. I hesitate to call All The Sinners Bleed his masterpiece because he has many more books to write and they only get better and better. Cosby no doubt carries the mantle of Faulkner with him as he uses the crime story to show us where we are and how far we still need to go. Sheriff Titus Crown lives in these pages and your heart. He's a character for the ages
Only S.A. Cosby could bring poetry to the darkness. A dark, disturbing and gripping masterpiece that reaches into the depths of your soul.
Cosby's growing body of work represents a muscular take on race relations in America. In All The Sinners Bleed, he again forces the reader to dwell on how prejudice lingers and shapes contemporary society, particularly in America's south. A powerful crime thriller that pulls no punches.
A top-notch tale about the dark side of small towns and racial politics
