It is a two part quest with interactions between two different groups.
This quest becomes available only after the events of A Matter of Life and Death.
If you completed the part with the bandits first, the quest will be reactivated again after encountering either Lussi, Fritz or Walter.
While walking around in Novigrad, Geralt of Rivia can be called over by a woman named Lussi in the upper middle of St.Gregory's Bridge towards Temple Isle, the woman explains that her home is haunted. Geralt follows her to her home into a ransacked house with two witch hunters, the witcher has to fight. Geralt tells the woman that she led him to a trap and so she gives Geralt a key to a treasure. The witcher then reads the warrant, the witch hunters were carrying. It details the three former bandits from the first part of the quest and names Lussi to be known as the Fox hiding on Temple Isle near the bridge. The warrant also lists two more individuals by the name of Fritz, hiding near the Crooked House, and Walter, last seen in the Lacehalls near Putrid Grove. Geralt has to find the other partners mentioned in the note and look for keys.
Fritz's house will be the one marked on the map in between the signposts of Hierarch Square, Oxenfurt Gate,and Southern Gate. Inside the house, Geralt will find a long dead body, presumably Fritz killed by witch hunters. If you go the second floor, light the torch beside the stairs and it will activate an entrance revealing a secret compartment. Inside the compartment is the locked safe (requires all 3 keys), a key, and a letter about the treasure by Fritz detailing the treasure in his house locked with three locks and that the three keys will be split with each of them.
Walter can then be found banging at a door at the point marked in the map near Putrid Grove. He will be approached by two witch hunters which will try and attack him. Defend him and he will give you the last key. Once you have all three keys, go back to the locked safe in Fritz's house and claim the treasure to end the quest.
After claiming the treasure, the game will notify you that the quest has been completed even if you have not encountered the bandits in the other part of the quest. It will be reactivated again if you go northwest of Hierarch Square and talk to some bandits standing in between the roads.
While walking around Novigrad, Geralt of Rivia can be called over by some bandits near a house with a large flower garden, northwest of Hierarch Square in between a blacksmith, a shopkeeper in a house near a sign that says "Butcher's", and another merchant. They ask the witcher to look for their "companion" who was last seen coming out the sewers and heading towards the harbor. Geralt follows boot prints and the scent of sewer slime while the three bandits follow him. The witcher eventually finds a witch hunter on the ground west of the St. Gregory's Bridge signpost, whom the bandits were actually trying to find for burning their fisstech. Either choose to leave the witch hunter to his demise or help him. If you leave the witch hunter in the hands of the bandits, he will be found laying dead with the three bandits looting his body in the same place you found him. If you help the witch hunter, you will have to fight the three level 14 bandits. The witch hunter will then ask if you'd be willing to give him medical attention. If you agree, you will be transported to Vilmerius Hospital where the witch hunter will be laying on the bed. If you refuse, Geralt will leave the witch hunter for dead, while sarcastically remarking that the hunter would die as a martyr for the Eternal Fire. There is no reward given for this quest except if you kill the bandits and grab the loot they drop.
Whatever decision you made here notifies you that the quest has been completed even if you have not encountered Lussi in the other part of the quest. It will be reactivated again if you go on St. Gregory's Bridge towards Temple Isle and talk to a woman named Lussi.
