Richard Price - The Whites (2nd Hand Paperback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9781408864593
Every cop has a personal 'White': a criminal who got away with murder - or worse - and was able to slip back into life, leaving the victim's family still seeking justice, the cop plagued by guilt.
Back in the 1990's, when Billy Graves worked in the South Bronx as part of an anti-crime unit known as the Wild Geese, he made headlines by accidentally shooting a ten-year-old boy while stopping an angel-dusted berserker in the street.
Branded as a cowboy, Billy spent years in one dead-end posting after another. Now in his early forties, he is a sergeant in Manhattan Night Watch, a team of detectives that responds to all felonies from Wall Street to Harlem between one a.m. and eight a.m.
Billy's work is mostly routine, but when Night Watch is called to the four a.m. fatal slashing of a man in Penn Station, his investigation moves beyond the usual handoff to the day shift. And when he discovers that the victim was once a suspect in an unsolved murder - a brutal case with connections to the former members of the Wild Geese - the bad old days are back in Billy's life with a vengeance.

"A masterpiece, to stand with such earlier Price classics as Clockers and Lush Life . . . [The Whites has] a compelling plot, yet the real joy of the book lies page by page, line by line, in its brilliant characterizations, rich detail, endless surprises, crackling dialogue, [and] absurdist humor.". - The Washington Post.
"Fasten your seat belt" - Kirkus Reviews.
"Extraordinary. A riveting crime tale thoroughly steeped in gritty cop irony, cop slang, cop attitudes and cop justice. The Whites is especially good at capturing New York City's peculiar brand of violent crime." - Newsday.
" . . . a great American novel." - Dennis Lehane.
