Only one man in the NYPD can tackle this high-profile case: Detective Michael Bennett. A calculating murderer called the Teacher is terrorizing New York City's powerful, arrogant elite. Rich people must mind their manners . . . or die. For anyone else, the pressure would be overwhelming, but Mike is ready. Taking care of his ten children has prepared him for the job! With his hands already full-his kids have all caught a virulent flu-he must now track down the killer. As a secret pattern emerges in the Teacher's lessons, Detective Bennett has just a few precious hours to save New York from the greatest disaster in its history.
