All the Sinners Bleed

by S.A. Cosby is a riveting tale of a small town on the verge of being blown apart by secrets and violence. After years of experience working for the FBI, Titus Crown became the first Black sheriff of Charon County, Virginia. In Crown’s small hometown, his first year as sheriff is marred by a school shooting that’s made even more horrific by the implication that the crimes may be part of a chain of abuses leveled against Black children in the community. And then, as the investigation dredges up more crimes and terrible secrets, evidence of a serial killer emerges, whose killings are creepily steeped in religious iconography. In a small town haunted by its history, Crown can trust no one.
