The Whites by Richard Price. Back in the 1990s, 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 response 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 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.

Granite Mountain is a gripping memoir that traces McDonough's story of finding his way out of the dead end of drugs, finding his purpose among the Granite Mountain Hotshots, and the minute-by-minute account of the fateful day he lost the very men who had saved him. A harrowing and redemptive tale of resilience in the face of tragedy, Granite Mountain is also a powerful reminder of the heroism of the people who put themselves in harm's way to protect us every day.
