I was writing up my list of favorite books this year and came across Blacktop Wasteland by S.A. Cosby but I remember reading Razorblade Tears by the same guy and thinking it was better. So where is my review? I have no idea. I checked my drafts, I checked my mail (where I often put drafts) and it just isn’t here.
by S.A. Cosby
Rating: A+ / literary thriller
So – I read this book in about August, shortly after it was released. I loved it. It gets an A++.
It’s about the rural south and two middle-aged men, one black one white, both with prison backgrounds who have to come to grips with the fact that their adult sons were lovers before they were murdered. And both fathers want vengeance, but have to get over their private rage to do it. It’s a thriller.
