The Goresky-MacPherson L-class of a PL pseudomanifold piecewise-linearly embedded in a PL manifold in a possibly nonlocally flat way, can be computed in terms of the Hirzebruch-Thom L-class of the manifold and twisted L-classes associated to the singularities of the embedding, as was shown by Cappell and Shaneson. These formulae are refined here by analyzing the twisted classes. We treat the case of Blanchfield local systems that extend into the singularities as well as cases where they do not extend. In the latter situation, we consider fibered embeddings of strata and 4-dimensional singular sets, using work of Banagl. Rho-invariants enter the picture.
