Blurb for Wolves Among Us:

In a tiny medieval German village, a double murder stirs up festering fears. The overworked sheriff is baffled, so the village priest sends for help to solve the mystery. But the charismatic Inquisitor who answers the call brings with him a deadly mix of spiritual fervor and self-deceptive evil. Under his influence, ordinary village fears and resentments take a deadly turn, and soon women are the targets of his crusade. Terror mounts. Dark secrets come to light. But in the midst of it all, a man and woman-the priest and the sheriff’s unloved wife-somehow dare to listen to another Voice . and discover what it means to love instead of fear.

In this richly imagined tale, Ginger Garrett takes readers to a tiny town on the edge of the Black Forest in 1538. A double murder has stirred up festering fears, so the village priest sends for help to solve the mystery. But the charismatic Inquisitor who answers the call brings with him a deadly mix of spiritual fervor and self-deceptive evil. Under his influence, ordinary village fears and resentments take a deadly turn, and soon women . In the midst of it, two people-the doubting priest and an unloved wife who once knew William Tyndale-somehow manage to hear another Voice and discover the power of love over fear.

This richly imagined tale takes readers to a tiny German town in the time of “the burnings,” when both the pious and heretic alike became victims of witch-hunting zealots. When a double murder stirs up festering fears, the village priest sends for help. But the charismatic inquisitor who answers the call brings with him a deadly mix of spiritual fervor and self-deceptive evil. Under his influence, village fears and guilt and resentment take a deadly turn, and soon women are being burned. In the midst of it, a doubting priest and an unloved wife-a friend of the recently martyred William Tyndale-somehow manage to hear another Voice.and discover the power of love over fear.
