Events of Perdido Street Station[]

David reports to Sally that Isaac Dan der Grimnebulin had possession of a Slake Moth grub, which matured and escaped, and that Isaac is also working on a Crisis engine, with some success. The latter news catches Sally's attention, and he instructs David to keep Isaac preoccupied while the militia prepare to capture him. Sally reassures David that Isaac won't be killed, as they need him for interrogation and to gain access to subversive networks in the city.
