    Summary

    Diana Reid has been schizophrenic for a very long time, and when the Altzheimer's hit, it didn't help at all. Spencer knows very well how bad the situation is. How bad it was. How bad it should be. But, she's been getting better, recently. Not less paranoid, but more coherent. And he keeps waiting for the other shoe to drop.

    (And in the background, Chaz makes bad decisions, like the Anomaly hasn't given enough to feel guilty about.)

    Summary

    "A paragraph at the bottom said, What else could be causing these symptoms? Among the possibilities were ‘panic attacks.’

    Yeah, probably just a panic attack from thinking about delusional, angry restaurant owners yelling at him while his team had to operate under COVID restrictions, while he was half asleep because he’d been working late. His subconscious just needed to work off steam or something. That was definitely it."

    Google is no help when a celebrity chef experiences unexplained events. Can a very special unit of the FBI solve the mystery?

    Summary

    A ring purchased by a pawnbroker in a small town in North Carolina is not the ring he finds the next day. When suspicions of insurance fraud come up, the local sheriff washes his hands of the matter, and Duke heads down with a consultant who specialises in gemstones. The consultant, unfortunately, has never before encountered an anomalous crime.

    Summary

    "The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb." -- Rabbi Richard Pustelniak

    This holiday season, Vexation of Spirit brings you family bullshit, with a side of murder and malfeasance.

    A strange system failure at Idlewood is preventing access to parts of patient and employee records, and it falls to Langly and Kim to figure out what's happening and how to fix it, before the missing information gets someone killed. Chaz's first hint something is wrong comes when Shadow's treatment fails to match the neurologist's orders.

    Reid and Alvez take on a twenty-year-old case in which the killer proudly admits to eleven murders, but has always held that two more were someone else's kills. A twentieth anniversary interview with a victim's sister reveals the last two deaths were a gay couple who didn't live together, and both came from intolerant families. Were one or both of the families involved in their deaths, or are they just as much a distraction as the other killer?

    And Reid gets more people knocking on his door in two days than in most of the preceding decade.

    Summary

    Someone in Las Vegas is cutting the legs off of women. Reid is already less than thrilled to be back in town, when he discovers the lead on the case is someone he used to know in school. When an anomalous man is spotted in the vicinity of several crime scenes, the question is whether he's a witness or the killer, and whether this will become an ACTF case.

    Summary

    The Masters chose the Sixth City, and against all advice, a deal was made for Washington DC. Reid's team are struggling to adjust to the Neath and its unusual inhabitants, and also to the apparent loss of the rest of the country. On top of this, a killing spree is stretching across the city, with apparently unrelated people slashing complete strangers, with similar techniques but widely varying knives. It's only with the assistance of a Fifth City team of experts in unusual crimes that they can even begin to approach the case from the right angles.

    And then the unthinkable happens, and Reid is caught up in a horror of Parabolan origins with a lord from the High Wilderness, the next stage in a drama stretching back before the Fall of London. How will a former Sequencer, a half-breed space bat, and a member of the Calendar Council who subsists almost entirely on ... 'caramels' save them?

    But first, a brief head injury, sustained in the fall...

    Summary

    While Villette deals with broken ribs, and Byers tries to figure out how to make space in his plans for Bedlam's top man, Reid gets called away on a case. Four victims have been found disembowelled in cold docks at the port of Camden, with no apparent similarities aside from the method of death. The lead detective on the case is not fond of the idea of having feds on his patch, and casually obstructs their investigation. Reid is not his usual tactful self after four attempts on his life in as many weeks.

    Summary

    Chaz has had to put up with some shitty assignments in the past. He'd like the shit to stay relegated to the cases, though, if he may.

    Villette gets nostalgic in shitty ways, and keeps company with (invariably overpriced) whiskey.

    Summary

    Langly's cousin isn't his cousin. She's his mutant clone. And neither of them are related to anyone in their family. Our heroes have traced this back to a fertility clinic operating out of Lincoln, but it's been shut down for thirty years, and a surprising number of former employees are dead or missing. No one knows where their records ended up. But, Byers has another idea about where to find more information...

    In the background, Reid and Villette deal with some lingering personal issues from times past, and the police keep showing up to investigate the greenhouse full of pot some local kids decided to build in the back of the dairy barn on the old Langly farm.

    In Idaho Falls, a killer has been hanging victims up in playgrounds, surrounded by battery-powered glowing stars. In York, there are bodies to be exhumed and difficult questions to be asked and maybe even answered. In Midland, an unusual number of patient-family suicides surround a mid-sized hospital. And from her cell, Narcisse continues to plot against her nemesis, the yet-unbowed Spencer Reid.

    Summary

    Langly has a cousin, or so they think. Under other circumstances, his wariness might be dismissed as paranoia, but who is this Nebraskan forensic pathologist, really? And how does Chaz intend to deal with the fact that he made a pass at the cousin of one of the men he's sleeping with, knowing damn well that was exactly what he was doing?

    Summary

    After fielding a fake request for immediate assistance that seemed to come from the Governor of Maryland's office, Prentiss sends the half of the team that's been working the Helmsman investigation out on a totally other case in Nebraska. Four bodies have been found during the harvest, along the I-80 corridor through Nebraska, each of them eviscerated and hung up like a scarecrow in a different farmer's corn. Whether they'd meant to take the case or not, it's definitely legitimate.

    Meanwhile, Yves has dropped back in on the Gunmen, to inform them she's been contracted to look into their front company, but she's been offered an extension on the contract to kill them. After deciding she'd rather not kill them, she agrees to be used as a conduit back to her employer... Helmsman.
