Spotlight: WOLVES AMONG US
Historical fiction from Ginger Garrett: It's the year 1538 in the town of Dinfoil on the edge of the black forest—an ordinary village until a double murder destroys the peace. Ordinary fears and resentments grow into witch-hunting fervor, and the smell of burning flesh fills the air. Who can stop it?
