In Death Masks, Susan and Harry attend the fundraiser to track down Anna Valmont and the Shroud of Turin before she sells it to John Marcone. They run into Marcone and Hendricks and are introduced to his new security advisor, Ms. Gard. Marcone tells them to leave and call in the Gala security. Martin creates a diversion to enable Susan and Harry to go deeper into the hotel so Harry can use a tracking spell to locate where Anna is. Harry finds her, interrupts the transaction.[2] The Denarians, Deirdre and "Snakeboy" Quintus Cassius led by Nicodemus Archleone, come after the Shroud. After an altercation, in which swirling marks appear on Susan and is identified as "Fellowship", Nicodemus takes the shroud and abducts Harry. Susan, Valmont and Martin escape.[2]
