A calculating killer who calls himself The Teacher is taking on New York City, killing powerful and arrogant wealthy residents. For some, it seems that the rich are getting what they deserve at last, but it’s a horrifying disaster for the city’s social elite. The Teacher’s message to the wealthy is clear: remember your manners or suffer the consequences.

Detective Mike Bennett is assigned to the case, and he must manage the pressure from his commissioner, the mayor, and the New York media, which would be too much for anyone. But he soon discovers a secret pattern in the Teacher’s lessons, and realizes he has just hours to save New York from the greatest disaster in its history.
