Razorblade Tears Synopsis: Ike Randolph has been out of jail for fifteen years, with not so much as a speeding ticket in all that time. But a Black man with cops at the door knows to be afraid.
The last thing he expects to hear is that his son Isiah has been murdered, along with Isiah’s white husband, Derek. Ike had never fully accepted his son but is devastated by his loss.
Derek’s father Buddy Lee was almost as ashamed of Derek for being gay as Derek was ashamed his father was a criminal. Buddy Lee still has contacts in the underworld, though, and he wants to know who killed his boy.
Ike and Buddy Lee, two ex-cons with little else in common other than a criminal past and a love for their dead sons, band together in their desperate desire for revenge. In their quest to do better for their sons in death than they did in life, hardened men Ike and Buddy Lee will confront their own prejudices about their sons and each other, as they rain down vengeance upon those who hurt their boys.
I’m pretty hype for this book. It was between this book and We Are The Brennans. They also had another book that sounded interesting, 56 Days, until I found out that Covid-19 is in it…like I’m sorry but after dealing with this for so long I really don’t want it in my books.
Anyway, I thought this one sounded the most interesting and I would like to know how it turns out and how the characters grow not only themselves but maybe how they grow together. Obviously I want to know who killed the sons and what the motive behind it was…hopefully we actually find out haha.
Anyway, that’s my pick for this month! If you’re interested in joining BOTM just click here.
