Allegedly based on real events, Who Among Us. . . is the first part of the story behind the collapse and aftermath of a 400 year old network of covens operating in Europe since their origins in Wurzburg and Bamberg in the 1600s –
Disowned by her family and deranged by anger, Jennifer Enzo views the world as a demonic garden, a film script and a list of names to be assassinated. But when she finds her own name on the list she is forced out of her insular world to counter a sinister threat to her life.
Professor Virginia Bruck’s world is divided between her research in artificial intelligence and posing for her husband, the eccentric German artist Earnst Bruck. Suspected of being the source of a destructive rumour she decides to do what her semi-aristocratic family have never done throughout centuries of rumour, and fight back.
Frieda Schoenhofer, a self-made millionaire, is determined to explain the death of a local witch. Police are equally determined to explain a baffling double murder and Frieda becomes their first suspect after the body of a man is found hung above the north door of Bamberg Cathedral.
All three women share a common association: the Malandanti, a four hundred year old network of covens on the brink of collapse following rumours of a plot to kill the leading members. As the conflict intensifies and the familiar world disappears, they will be forced to reassess their own ambitions, confront the nature of guilt and innocence, and question how their beliefs explain the supernatural forces they each control.
“Where is Eve?”
Watson’s eyes bulged, his entire body unfolding as Jenzo’s distorted figure stepped over him. Crimson, cloven hooved, naked as the day she emerged from a poisoned womb. Her membranous wings uncurled. A tail writhed towards Watson’s chin, raising his face to Jenzo’s.
“Where is Eve?”
“Don’t know Eve. I don’t know.” He forced his eyes shut and muttered a prayer, a desperate mumbled Lord’s Prayer.
“Never there when you need him, Paul,” said Jenzo. “Not like me, I’m always here when you need me. You need me now, Paul. To get you out of here. Do you know what they’ll do if you don’t give them the answers? Give me the answers and I can help you. I help everyone who calls on me, Paul.” She squatted over Watson’s chest and pushed her face against his. “I was an angel once.”
