Although they’ve just met, lawyer Eileen Sangazure has her doubts about Jason, the smooth salesman from JWW Enterprises, Ltd.  She’d be a lot more worried if she knew that the “work-related mishap” involved being carried off by the demon Arimazel.bab-JWW 

“I like to say that at JWW we are not content merely to nudge the course of destiny into a new direction—we’re in the business of twisting the long arm of coincidence right out of its socket.” He smiled at her proudly. [Eileen] found herself smiling back and accepting an elegant engraved business card.

“They’re a distinguished firm of Family Sorcerers, my dear. The firm is named after John Wellington Wells, who was Jason’s great-grandfather,” Alex added.

“Great-grand-uncle,” Jason corrected. “J W Wells was a forward-thinker, the first to apply modern business methods to the practice of sorcery. Brought the firm right into the nineteenth century. But he died suddenly in a work-related mishap and left no direct descendants.”

“Sorry to hear it,” Eileen murmured. “But Alex, why do we need a…” She frowned at the card in her hand. “A Senior Account Executive, Potions? Surely the law firm is doing well enough.”
