Harry gets a tip from Ulsharavas that the Shroud and the thieves are on a ship called The Estranger parked in Burnham Harbor.[3] Harry surveys the ship, then boards it, finding two thieves—Francisca Garcia and Anna Valmont. He nearly gets the Shroud when Anna gets the drop on him with a gun. Then the ship is attacked by Deirdre, who kills Francisca and sinks the ship. Harry saves the Shroud from Deirdre but Anna escapes with it.[4]

During a Gala for the Chicago Historical & Art Society held at the Marriott Downtown Chicago Hotel, Anna attempts to hold a covert sale of the Shroud to John Marcone. Harry Dresden, Susan Rodriguez and Martin interrupt the sale and try to get the Shroud. Before they can succeed, they are all attacked by Nicodemus Archleone and two Denarians: Deirdre and Quintus Cassius. Valmont manages to escape but Harry and the Shroud are captured by Nicodemus.[5]
