No politician is as beloved as New York City Mayor John Kendrick, the four-term hero who triumphed during crisis and eliminated homelessness. But if the truth the mayor is hiding comes to light, it could leave New York in ruins. As cataclysm looms, New Yorkers’ lives intersect, leading a power-hungry aide, a struggling author, and a loud-mouthed journalist to uncover a devastating series of lies. History, legacy, and death collide while a city races toward the worst disaster it has ever faced. The destruction will be tweeted.
