Chapter Twelve

A lone in his office, deep in the bowels of the Everwell Chemical Plant, Enzo Giovanni sat on a massive chair made of fine mahogany cov-
ered with purple velvet and stitched with gold thread.
He liked to think of the seat as his throne. Not yet,
he knew, but someday, he would wield power greater
than any king had ever imagined.

Four flights down beneath the streets, Enzo’s sanc-
tum was a large square room with ceiling, walls and
floor made of gray cement. Its only furnishings con-
sisted of his throne, a wide mahogany table and
several other wooden chairs covered with black
leather. The lighting was low and dim, bulbs recessed
in the low ceiling. A single door accessed the cham-
ber. Enzo disliked unannounced visitors. As president
of Everwell Chemicals and a member of the Board of
Directors of the secret Pentex Corporation, Enzo
highly valued his privacy. Others who had been less
cautious had paid the ultimate price.

It was shortly before midnight and he awaited the
arrival of his cousin, Montifloro, due at the hour.
Enzo’s lips parted in a knowing smile. He suspected
Montifloro might be a little late. Though one of the
undead, a vampire like himself, his cousin still re-
tained a passion for mortal women. It was a fatal flaw
in his character, and one that Enzo had exploited to
the fullest over the past few days.

Montifloro had been sent by Pietro Giovanni from
their family headquarters in Venice to spy on Enzo,
and to discover if he had turned traitor to Clan
Giovanni. One of the most cunning and devious
members of the family, Montifloro was a skilled inves-
tigator who rarely missed a clue. However, his
unnatural desires betrayed him. Instead of searching
for the truth about Everwell Chemicals and Enzo’s
acquisition of the company, Montifloro had spent all
of his waking hours with Enzo’s new assistant, Ms.
Hope. A dark-haired beauty, the stunning young
woman had captivated his cousin. Just as Enzo had
expected.

There was a knock on the door. “Enter,” cried Enzo,
not bothering to rise. It could only be Montifloro.

Other than the lights, there was nothing electrical
or mechanical in the entire room. It was a sterile, life-
less environment-a cement tombwhich perfectly
suited Enzo. Tonight, though the weather outside was
hot and humid, the mom was icy cold. In the far cor-
ner of the room, a dark mist seethed just beyond the
glow of the dim yellow lights. Enzo wondered if a bulb
