The Secret of the White Rose has been a wonderful surprise! I enjoyed reading the book. Very satisfying.

I found the book after being turned off by the more ponderous reading of Caleb Carr's novels. This one moved along very well, yet still gave rich background of the early 1900's in New York. Pintoff was able to maintain an engrossing story while keeping alive the colorful milieu of an alien time and place (New York City during WWI.)

I've been on a kick of reading about the WWI time frame with novels by Charles Todd, Laurie King, Ken Follett and others. This one is a welcome addition to the genre of criminal investigation at the beginnings of modern world.

Pintoff's novels move at such a rattling pace that one does not always notice logical inconsistencies that are never addressed. Occasionally the need for a sterner editorial hand. An enjoyable but imperfect read. I appreciated the glimpse at New York's ethnic and class divides as they were in the early 1900s. Looking forward to the next in the series.
