Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Finding the vilest lawyer in L.A. sounds like a pretty tough job, but Angel has done it. Kicking off a new three-issue arc, Angel, Doyle, and Cordelia face off with a new gang of demons, and allies that prove even less trustworthy.
Continuity[edit | edit source]
- This story is set during Angel season 1, with the configuration of Angel Investigations being from before the episode "Hero."
- While Angel considers that Bram Stoker's novel Dracula "started a pop-culture myth that eradicated any trace of the truth about vampires," Spike will comment that Dracula has done "more harm to vampires than any Slayer. His story gets out and suddenly everybody knows how to kill [them]." ("Buffy vs. Dracula").

Quotes[edit | edit source]
|Cordelia: "It isn't like we need tabloids to tell us that demons are disgusting and evil. We're like living proof, or something"|
|Angel: "Beneath the streets of Los Angeles is a maze of passages most of its citizens know nothing about. Electrical, sewage, and plumbing accessways, and the remains of an early, foolish, and wisely abandoned attempt at building a subway in earthquake country. All combined, this warren of underground routes makes it possible for a determined individual to make their way around L.A. without ever seeing the sun. Perfect for vampires. Among others. Never know what you're going to run into down there. But that's a story for another day."|
