REVIEW: The Whites by Richard Price

5 STARS- The Whites
Gritty, tough, hard-boiled mystery
Beautifully written, Price not only creates a fascinatingly complex character in Billy Graves, the cop who runs an overnight team in New York City, but gives equal attention to each character who makes up Billy’s world — his old buddies he worked with in the 1990s, his father who used to be very high up in the NYPD but now suffers from dementia, his two sons, his second wife Carmen, her gay brother, the woman who helps take care of his family, and the bizarre stalker murderer who weaves in and out of all their stories. In addition, the portrait of NYC as the backdrop of the novel is rich.
