The Whites by Harry Brandt
Sergeant Billy Graves had a bright future with the NYPD as a member of the "Wild Geese" anti-crime unit, until his bullet missed the crook and injured a child instead. Now Billy is part of Manhattan's Night Watch, whose detectives handle felonies between 1 a.m. and 8 a.m. However, each of his former partners in the "Wild Geese" have a "white" (as in Melville's great white whale): that one criminal they could never bring to justice. Then, the whites start dying, and Billy feels compelled to act.
