The former mayor gingerly approaches Frank after Jamie arrested his spoiled-rotten brat daughter, by the book, for drug possession and gross disrespect, which continues even in court. While Henry attends the funeral of his Hassidic friend, the New York grand rabbi, his junior son and designated successor is fatally stabbed just outdoors.

Investigating, Danny and ex-Hassidic fellow detective Wolf Landsman find further possible motives in the rabbinical family's secret love life and consider further strong-armed acolytes opportunities.
