*** The Whites by Richard White


The Whites is a complicated story of New York City detectives hunting for suspects in old unsolved cases — unsolved only in the sense that they cannot prove who did it. It took me quite a while to figure out what was going on, as the book juxtaposes scenes from different eras with few clues for the reader, along with occasionally clunky sentences. Fortunately, I hung on past the midpoint, when it became easier to picture the various actors, remember the crimes they were obsessed with, and keep up with the maniacal stalker who seems obsessed by the hero. If you attempt this book, be patient during the first half!
