Description

A BLACK FATHER. A WHITE FATHER. TWO MURDERED SONS. A QUEST FOR VENGEANCE. *SUNDAY TIMES THRILLER OF THE MONTH*’Superb…Cuts right to the heart of the most important questions of our times.’ MICHAEL CONNELLY’The very definition of a white-knuckle ride’ IAN RANKINIke Randolph left jail fifteen years ago, with not so much as a speeding ticket since.

But a Black man with cops at the door knows to be afraid. Ike is devastated to learn his son Isiah has been murdered, along with Isiah’s white husband, Derek.

Though he never fully accepted his son, Ike is broken by his death. Derek’s father Buddy Lee was as ashamed of Derek being gay as Derek was of his father’s criminal past.

But Buddy Lee – with seedy contacts deep in the underworld – needs to know who killed his only child. Desperate to do better by them in death than they did in life, two hardened ex-cons must confront their own prejudices about their sons – and each other – as they rain down vengeance upon those who hurt their boys. A provocative revenge thriller and an achingly tender story of redemption, this novel is a ferocious portrait of grief; for those loved and lost, and for mistakes than can never truly be undone. ‘Every once in a while a writer comes along with an incredible voice…add S.

A. Cosby to that list.’ STEVE CAVANAGH’Utterly brilliant….Beautiful, violent, operatic, relevant, poignant, gripping & important.

This book is a mirror. It shows us our world as it is. Masterful’ WILL DEANPraise for S. A. Cosby:’Sensationally good’ LEE CHILD’I loved BLACKTOP WASTELAND’ STEPHEN KING’Stunning.

A. Cosby is a welcome, refreshing new voice in crime literature.’ DENNIS LEHANE
