Can’t Wait Wednesday – ALL THE SINNERS BLEED by S.A. Cosby
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is ALL THE SINNERS BLEED by S.A. Cosby. Cosby’s last two gritty thrillers, Blacktop Wasteland and Razorblade Tears, really blew me away so I’m eager to read more from him. This new book sounds timely and like it has the potential to be another powerful and mind blowing read.
ALL THE SINNERS BLEED by S.A. Cosby
Publication Date: June 6, 2023 by Flatiron Books
Titus Crowne is the first Black sheriff in the history of Charon County. A former FBI agent and security expert, Titus came home to take care of his father and look out for his troubled younger brother. He ran for Sheriff to make a difference, especially in the Black community, which has so often been treated unfairly by the police.
But a year to the day after his election, a school shooting rocks the town. A beloved teacher is killed by a former student, and as Titus attempts to deescalate and get the boy to surrender, his deputies fire a fatal shot.
In the investigation, it becomes clear that the student they shot had been abused by the dead teacher, as well as by unidentified perpetrators. The trail leads to buried bodies—and secrets. While Titus tries to track down a killer hiding in plain sight, while balancing daily duties like protecting Confederate pride marchers, he must face what it means to be a Black man wearing a police uniform in the American South.

I need to give Cosby another try, I wasn’t completely sold on Razorblade Tears. I know, unpopular opinion!
I like the title. Sounds powerful. I hope you get to read it soon.

I loved Razorblade Tears, have Blacktop Wastelands on my tbr and now this one will join it – just the kind of books I enjoy. Have you read any Attica Locke? She writes a series (2 books I think so far) about a morally gray black cop in the south and the challenges he faces. So good! You might enjoy them.
