內容簡介

長達七年的漫長等待,紐約犯罪小說家Richard Price化名Harry Brandt,再創全新經典紐約式警匪小說

一樁未解的謀殺案,引發出一個正義警察最不願面對的黑暗史及殘暴血腥的復仇之路

「犯罪小說的年度經典,冷酷的罪犯及無所畏懼的主角,故事內容令人血脈僨張,忍不住一口氣讀完最後一百頁,結局深深感動了我。不管作者是Price還是化名Brandt,只有他最能寫實刻劃出警察人生的血與淚。」─美國故事大師史蒂芬‧金(Stephen King)

90年代的紐約布朗克斯,Billy Graves為刑警隊所組成的反犯罪組織「野鵝」(Wild Geese)的一員。直到為了追捕一個拿槍掃街的罪犯而誤傷一位10歲男孩,Billy因此上了報紙頭條並成為社會輿論的受害者。如今「野鵝」早已解散,成員們分別投入各行各業,年過40的Billy在紐約警察局夜巡隊擔任警官,每天的工作是在凌晨1點至8點巡邏,負責的區域從華爾街到哈林區,在無人管轄的的夜晚維護曼哈頓的和平。

在一個平常的夜晚,夜巡隊收到通知,一個慘遭嚴重砍傷的男子出現在賓州車站,在案發現場Billy發現被害者居然是他曾在「野鵝」時一樁謀殺懸案的嫌疑犯,而「野鵝」從未追捕到的罪犯,統一的代號為「The Whites」。為了調查這名「The Whites」,過往的回憶又再度走進Billy的生活,而為了查出真相,他也漸漸發現與「野鵝」同袍們的情誼早已走樣,越往下挖掘真相,危險也離他越來越近…。
 

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 1990s, Billy Graves was one of the Wild Geese: a tight-knit crew of young mavericks, fresh to police work and hungry for justice, looking out for each other and their 'family' of neighbourhood locals. But then Billy made some bad headlines by accidentally shooting a ten-year-old boy while bringing down an angel-dusted berserker in the street. Branded a loose cannon, he spent years in one dead-end posting after another. Now he has settled into his role as sergeant in the Night Watch, content simply to do his job and go home to his family. But when he is called to the 4 a.m. stabbing of a man in Penn Station, Billy discovers the victim is the 'White' of one of his oldest friends, a former member of the Wild Geese, who is now retired. As the past comes crashing into the present, the Wild Geese seemingly rise from the dead, and the bad old run-and-gun days of the 90s are back with a vengeance.

Richard Price, writing for the first time under the pen-name of Harry Brandt, is one of America's most gifted novelists. He has always written brilliantly about New York City, and this electrifying novel - fast-moving and stripped to the bone - marks a heart-stopping new departure.
