In Rome: Petra, Rose, Michelle and Rider look at the remains of the Rose Palace, and notice that they've attracted a magically cloaked tail. Then something tries to attack Petra at lunch. She has a conference with Satan, bringing the prisoner.

Back at Lake Alban, they're kept up all night by zombies dribbling in one by one. Rider reports that they were getting their sacrifices by importing them: the illegal immigrant route.

Petra and companions turn up a clue in the late Father Trovatti's office, and go to check out the person who delivered the "Jericho" painting. He's been turned into a thing. Petra finds a laptop and is then overwhelmed with a psychic scream. Everyone leaves the building, which then implodes. Petra starts to investigate the laptop, which seems to be working on a fuzzy logic system: true, false, maybe. She has to be hauled out of cyberspace, and then visits Satan to clean the mythos stuff out of her system. The incident has triggered a cascade of magics to rouse a Star Seed.
