S.A Cosby
This is an excellent book
I haven’t read this one

When I was in jail, I read ninety-eight books and Razor blade Tears was the first book of S.A Cosby that I read. I gave his book a five-star review. The story line in his books I have read so far, is easy for me to follow. The reason being is I know most of the places in Virginia he is referring too. I live in the Roanoke, VA area and he lives in Tidewater. I hope to meet him some day.

His books make you think and always involve ex-convicts. In Razorblade tears when the police gave up on the investigation of two gay men, their fathers took over where the police left off. In Blacktop Wasteland, again it involves an ex-convict. I also gave Blacktop Wasteland a five-star rating. This man has a great writing style about him. I recommend both books and the third one sounds interesting as well.

I just found this book by this author. I am going to have to get it either from e-bay or Amazon and read it so I can do a review on this book. If it is anything like his other two books, then I am in for a treat.

I always try to follow good authors whenever I can. This is a good one. But don’t take my word for it, get the books and read them for yourselves. You will be amazed, I was.
