The Whites

Fans of Richard Price’s more procedural books will relish this new book, one that seems to be the beginning of a series featuring the detectives that you’ll quickly feel like you’ve known for years and root for as they wade through the mess that is New York’s criminal class. Like all of Price’s best books, The Whites, too, showcases a broad swath of New York’s various subcultures, highlighting the millions of little ways that lives in crowded places overlap in interesting and sometimes troubling ways. But he never reduces anyone to a stereotype; each character feels alive and well-worn, like an old friend or perhaps the man you’ve been buying your coffee from for a decade, which is to say pleasantly familiar.
