Publisher's Summary

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.

Still recovering and still fighting to fit back in at the precinct, Codella must contend with a new partner and an old disease to find out who killed Hector Sanchez. As she investigates, she turns up question after question - and finding the answers may cost Codella her life.

Good story, great narrator

I liked the concept of the book, I actually liked the protagonist, the fact that she was sketched but not too much, I liked the fact that most of the characters lied, which made solving the case more difficult.

From reading these types of books I realised that people do lie for selfish reasons and that the solving of a murder is most of the time less important to them than saving face, all people have flaws after all.
I also really liked Munioz (I hope I spelled that correctly), despite all he did act as the better man.
I'm looking forward to listening to the next book.

The narrator did a great job and it made listening to this book enjoyable.
