Borlú opens his eyes. He breached, and now he's under Breach control. If Mahalia and Katrynia discovered that there is a third city, that would leave the cities at war. Breach want to know about Orciny. They want Borlú to find the true link between Mahalia, Bowden and Borlú's subversive wife.
Borlú is interrogated by the Ul Qoman Militsya and is promptly taken to the Militsya HQ. He broke the terms of his agreement with Dhatt and she is furious – his possible deportation is out of her control. She's got him under constant surveillance. Dhatt knows this case means more to Borlú than being just another murder.
Borlú encounters another roadblock with his investigation into Mahalia's death when Commissar Gadlem tells him that the case has been taken over by the Ul Qoman Militsya. Gadlem allows Borlú to stay on the case and travel to Ul Qoma, but purely on an advisory capacity: the Ul Qoman Militsya are now leading the investigation.
