The world of New York City school politics takes a deadly turn when Hector Sanchez, the popular principal of an up-and-coming public school, is murdered. Detective Claire Codella catches the high-profile case while she’s still struggling to get back up to speed. This is her first case since taking leave to battle cancer.
