Summary Edit

Eph and Dutch spy on Palmer to determine an ideal time and place to assassinate him. Searching for Rudyard Fonescu (who possesses the Occido Lumen) Setrakian, Fet, and Nora work to track down every "R. Fonescu" in New York City. Palmer, hoping to reconcile with Marchand, convinces her to return to his employ. Councilwoman Feraldo demands that the Upper East Side's wealthy residents pay a parcel tax in exchange for her protection, angering Mayor Lyle and his rich supporters. Eph and Dutch, learning that Palmer is appearing at a press conference, seize the opportunity to shoot him, but Eph botches his shot and hits Marchand instead, critically wounding her. He and Dutch are arrested, but Dutch is inexplicably taken away from police custody. Palmer threatens Eichhorst, demanding that the Master heal Marchand or else he will dissolve their partnership. He later confronts Eph face-to-face at the jail to show that he is still alive. The Master revives Marchand, and Palmer confesses his involvement with the Master to her. A strigoi mob attacks the police station, slaughtering most of the officers; Fet and Nora arrive in time to rescue Eph. The cop whose partner took Dutch away tells them she is at the Mayfield Hotel. Setrakian tracks down the last R. Fonescu on the list and finds the Lumen hidden in the man's room, but an unknown assailant knocks him out and takes the book. Finally, Dutch finds herself chained inside Eichhorst's dungeon.
