From the New York Times Bestselling author S.A. Cosby comes his latest Southern Noir crime thriller, All the Sinners Bleed. It’s set against the backdrop of a small historically Confederate town in Virginia, the state which the author calls home. When the first Black sheriff, Titus, is elected, he’s not met with the usual Southern hospitality. A serial killer is taking out the town, and an extreme right-wing group is causing trouble. It’s up to Titus to bring justice to his home, but it won’t be easy.
S.A. Cosby’s most well-known books are Blacktop Wasteland and Razorblade Tears. He has received high praise and a landslide of awards for both titles. His crime thrillers are always set in a tight-knit community in the deep south and confront hot-button social issues like race, class, and sex. In an interview with The Guardian, Cosby shares that his belief that the best Southern fiction “takes the hypocrisy of the south, a region that seeks to steep itself in religion and moral rigidity, and melds that with the reality of a multitude of social, sexual and class backgrounds and situations.” His upcoming murder mystery, All the Sinners Bleed, will confront the racial tensions that arose during Donald Trump’s presidency.

About the Book
All the Sinners Bleed
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).
