"Lazarre-White masterfully portrays people of multiple races, old and young. He also delivers Cosby's reflections on family, grief, and faith with genuine introspection and without distracting from the tense plotlines...This is a gripping, timely tale??beautifully told." ??AudioFile (Earphones Award winner)

The new novel from New York Times bestselling and Los Angeles Times Book Prize-winning author S. A. Cosby, "one of the most muscular, distinctive, grab-you-by-both-ears voices in American crime fiction." ??The Washington Post.
A Black sheriff. A serial killer.
A small town ready to combust.

Titus Crown is the first Black sheriff in the history of Charon County, Virginia. In recent decades, quiet Charon has had only two murders. But after years of working as an FBI agent, Titus knows better than anyone that while his hometown might seem like a land of moonshine, cornbread, and honeysuckle, secrets always fester under the surface.
Then a year to the day after Titus's election, a school teacher is killed by a former student and the student is fatally shot by Titus's deputies. As Titus investigates the shootings, he unearths terrible crimes and a serial killer who has been hiding in plain sight, haunting the dirt lanes and woodland clearings of Charon.
With the killer's possible connections to a local church and the town's harrowing history weighing on him, Titus projects confidence about closing the case while concealing a painful secret from his own past. At the same time, he also has to contend with a far-right group that wants to hold a parade in celebration of the town's Confederate history.
Charon is Titus's home and his heart. But where faith and violence meet, there will be a reckoning.
Powerful and unforgettable, All the Sinners Bleed confirms S. A. Cosby as "one of the most muscular, distinctive, grab-you-by-both-ears voices in American crime fiction" (The Washington Post).
A Macmillan Audio production from Flatiron Books.

Titus Crown leaves his work as an FBI agent under some kind of cloud (details to be revealed late in the book) to return to his rural Virginia hometown, where his elderly father is recuperating from a broken hip. He runs for sheriff and becomes the first Black sheriff of the county.

One morning he is called out to the high school to respond to an armed intruder, a shooting. The victim is a white teacher. The shooter is a young black man. There is a confrontation, the shooter is shot and killed. The subsequent investigation uncovers an unspeakable truth.

This is a very well-written book, incredibly intense, and also violent. The plot was riveting, the characters complex, and the dialog sharp. ( )

Powerful stuff, even if the politics are a little too much in your face. Black County Sheriff in a coastal Virginia town has to deal with not just a serial killer, but Confederate sympathisers. He's a believably flawed character, as are many of the folks portrayed here. The setting is well done and the issues are right off the front page, as they say. Trump voters will not like this, so please gift them with it so they will be miserable for a while. Cosby writes very well, and the audiobook is exceptionally well performed. ( )

Here is a dark and gritty crime novel set in a rural county on the banks of the Chesapeake in Virginia. Titus was with the FBI, but had to leave that job. Returning home to care for his father, he becomes sheriff in a county where the law has previously been unequally applied. He's determined to change that, despite resistance from those who feel threatened by change. A school shooting leads to the gruesome discovery of murdered children buried in a field and Titus is in a race to stop the murderer before he kills again, while simultaneously keeping a lid on the simmering tensions and fears in the county that the murders have fueled.

Cosby is an author who does a lot more than just write an entertaining crime thriller. Here, he sheds light on how tradition and habit have imbedded racism into the fabric of a small town's culture and how hard the pushback is to any sort of move towards equality. His portrayal of the people of this small town is clear-eyed and sharp, without ever descending into stereo-type or caricature. Titus is perhaps a little too perfect and too often right, but he's a complex and interesting character. It feels like we may see more of him in future novels and I would be happy to see what he does next. The crimes at the center of this mystery are particularly grim and while the descriptions are not graphic, they were still hard to read. I read Cosby's first novel and it's clear he becomes better with every book he writes and that he still has a great deal to say. ( )

Well plotted and narrated with some colorful phrases like "panting like they had just finished a puma-assisted mile. ( )

Excellent small town serial killer mystery mixed with commentary on racism and religious fundamentalism from a Black sheriff and many crises of faith. This is so well done and leaves you with plenty to chew on. ( )
