Razorblade Tears – A captivating, meaningful novel
Razorblade Tears is a vivid and heart-pounding ride into the lives of two fathers, Ike Randolph and Buddy Lee, who have suffered unspeakable losses: Their sons -married to each other-have been brutally murdered. In the midst of their devastation, they join forces to learn who committed the horrific crimes. Both fathers have a history of being on the wrong side of the law—but as they set out on a blood-soaked journey of revenge, they’re forced to examine their own prejudices before they can pursue justice for their boys.
I loved everything about this brilliant, unforgettable book. The plot moves at a breakneck pace, the characters jump right off the page, and the setting evokes the lushness of rural Virginia. But it’s the heart and soul of Razorblade Tears that moved me the most. This is a crime noir novel that not only entertains but carries a profound and affecting message about life in modern America.
Hang on tight for this action-packed, adrenaline-filled tale that dives into the minds of two fathers as they confront their feelings and anger in a story of violence and vengeance.
“In this tale of crime and punishment, fatherhood is a significant theme. When Buddy loses his son to murder, his natural instinct is to seek revenge. Ike’s greater understanding of fatherhood comes from letting go when his son is gay. What makes the story compelling is that both fathers are looking for the same thing. They seek justice for their sons through vigilante justice but each also wants to know why this happened. They discover how much they have in common when they join forces to take matters into their own hands and find the killer.”
“Harrison’s suspenseful tale asks us to consider what would we do if our children were murdered? We might decide, as Buddy does, to seek revenge with a vengeance…or, like Ike, we might find that it’s more important to rise above our own pain and seek justice by appealing to law enforcement…a difficult decision for a parent. The story takes some surprising turns and Harrison’s characters come alive through his vivid descriptions of places, cars, and people.”
“A great premise for a story and an excellent read! Razorblade Tears is becoming a favorite author of mine – I’ve read all his books and loved them all…Highly recommended!”
