Pezzini investigates what appears to be a ritualistic murder, and is intrigued by a symbol painted on the walls near the murder scene. She takes a photo of the symbol to Gabriel, hoping that his penchant for the occult might provide her with a clue – and it does, pointing her to a nightclub were an Irish rock musician named Conchobar is playing. But at the same time, it’s revealed that the body found earlier was a cadaver – the “victim” was already dead. Pezzini still visits the club, which seems pointless until Conchobar’s lyrics mention “the witch’s glove” – and proceed from there to describe, in detail, a murder that isn’t reported until the next day. Conchobar himself has an alibi, but someone seems to be following his lyrics to the letter – and the words aren’t new. The same story is already spelled out in an ancient Celtic text owned by Kenneth Irons.
