He will be equally ensnared. And the witch will have her true payment"--

The Zeroes defend themselves the best they can, learning more about their enemies through a series of crowd disasters - a wrecked celebrity wedding, a bloodbath at a shopping mall, and a funeral for one of the Swarm's victims that goes very, very wrong. In the meantime, each of the Zeroes has their own fish to fry. Bellwether's confidence is challenged by the Swarm, while Mob finds herself drawn to the killing crowd. Crash's conscience - and her heart - get a workout, and Anon and Scam face harsh truths about family and belonging.
