Ike and Buddy Lee - a black man and a white man - team up to solve the murders of their married sons, exacting vengeance along the way. This bloody Southern thriller has already made every Best of the Summer list, and S A Cosby has garnered more well-deserved acclaim already in his young career than some of the biggest mystery names out there. Enjoy. This book is absolutely not to be missed!
Cosby's book from last year gave us a taste of the incredible writing, pacing and thrills that he can deliver, and if you haven't already read it, you'll be looking for it as soon as you finish Razorblade Tears.
Exploring the intricacies and crimes of rural America, while writing with some beautiful turns of phrase is something we found with David Joy's books a few years ago. If you find yourself liking "rural noir", make sure to pick up a book by Joy.
