Believing that he’s sighted his missing wife Helen alive and well, Nick Cutter begins obsessively scouring her written research notes, looking for any vague mention of the anomalies that he wouldn’t have recognized before. Connor learns of a possible sighting of huge prehistoric bugs in the Underground system, and talks Abby into joining him to investigate. This irritates Cutter, who decides that Connor is too young and inexperienced to stay on the team. But when the rumors of giant insects in the Underground turns out to be true, Lester sends in the Special Forces, who are promptly driven back to the surface. Cutter, Abby and Stephen investigate for themselves, and quickly discover that the biggest and deadliest of the bugs has yet to make an appearance…
