Summary
"Back in the bad old days, when Billy Graves worked for an anti-crime unit in [the South Bronx] known as the Wild Geese, the NYPD branded him as a cowboy. Now forty, he has somehow survived and become a sergeant in Manhattan Night Watch. Mostly, his team of detectives conducts a series of holding actions--and after years in police purgatory, Billy is content simply to do his job. But soon after he gets a [4:00] a.m. call about the fatal knifing of a [man] in [Penn Station], his investigation moves beyond the usual handoff to the day shift. And when he discovers that the victim was once a suspect in the unsolved murder of a [12-year-old boy], he finds himself drawn back to the [mid]- 1990s when the Wild Geese were at their most wayward"--

Summary
Forty-two-year-old Sergeant Billy Graves marks time as head of the Manhattan's Night Watch, the motley group of detectives who deal with felonies between 1 a.m. and 8 a.m. Married with two kids, he was an NYPD officer on the rise until a bullet from his gun missed a criminal and hit a kid. Billy and his cadre of fellow gung-ho cops from that time all have a "white" -- that one criminal who escaped justice. Now, the group's whites are turning up dead. This compelling, authentic novel is sure to please fans of police procedurals. -- Description by Dawn Towery
