Washington Post reporter LISA WU has stumbled onto story of her life, maybe the story of the decade when she began investing the death of two reporters murdered in Rat City. Her investigation leads her to Senator McMillian, Billy Kincaid and then, strangely to Wanda Blake and her daughter Cyan, Billy's last victim who was rescued. Is there a connection between all of these parties? Lisa intends to find out and she will start with Wanda Blake, and the alley. She manages to bribe some of the inhabitants of the alley and discovers Spawn's hidden weapons, and gets a hot tip on someone named Al.
In the darkness of night, Spawn pays Wanda and Cyan a visit. While he is there, one of Wynn's agents comes in to kill the mother and daughter. Spawn acts quickly and kills the agent, but in the process frightens Wanda again. Spawn tries to tell her who he really is but she is convinced that the monster before her is lying. It couldn't possibly be her dead husband, Al. When Cyan enters the room, Spawn leaves. Only after he is gone, Cyan tells her mother that he was the Sad Man who saved here from Billy Kincaid.moreless
