Unable to conceal the fact that something horrible is going on on the island, Inskip mobilizes every armed man in the village into a militia under his command. Another attack befalls a Coast Guard shed further inland, resulting in the deaths of three men, but leaving behind evidence. Fiona and Gaffikin also examine the evidence left at a prior crime scene, including a camera with an automatic trigger which is easily tripped by a spike in radiation, and a cassette left behind in a tape recorder. What they discover is confusing: the assailant behind the string of grisly killings is both human and inhuman.
