Synopsis

The author of The Emperor of Ocean Park, with the powers of observation and richness of plot and character, returns to the New England university town of Elm Harbor, where a murder begins to crack the veneer that has hidden the racial complications of the town’s past, the secrets of a prominent family, and the most hidden bastions of African-American political influence. And at the center: Lemaster Carlyle, the university president, and his wife, Julia Carlyle, a deputy dean at the divinity school–African Americans living in “the heart of whiteness.”
Lemaster is an old friend of the president of the United States. Julia was the murdered man’s lover years ago. The meeting point of these connections forms the core of a mystery that deepens even as Julia closes in on the politically earth-shattering motive behind the murder.
Relentlessly suspenseful, galvanizing in its exploration of the profound difference between allegiance to ideas and to people, New England White is a resounding confirmation of Stephen Carter’s gifts as a writer of fiction.

AudiobooksNow review by Susan on 2009-08-15 16:27:04

I always give a book until page 100 before I decide I just can't go any further. This book, while extremely well written, had just too many big unnecessary words and it was extremely hard to get through those first 100 pages. However, once the plot started to thicken I enjoyed it a great deal. I still think it could have been shortened by about 75 pages or so--Stephen L. Carter shows that he is a talented writer that likes to impress with his big vocabulary!
