Liza O'Connor - Proud Mary (The Fury of an Angry Wife)

The Fury of an Angry Wife

While Charles' wife, Elizabeth, has no issue with the way he acquires children, (just as long as she doesn’t have to deal with them), Theresa Spadoni does care. She has been trying to give her husband a baby for years, but nothing happens. Then one night with a coworker and Mary Mason has not just one baby, but two!

Her anger has escalated to murder. It was her idea to set the pit bull on to Mary. It was also her idea to kill Mary’s newborn son. If she can’t give her unfaithful husband a child, then she would at least make certain his child by Mary wouldn’t survive either.

Sometimes even the strong

requires a helping hand.


Mary Mason may have lost her job and reputation, but she has too much pride to allow vengeful women and their manipulative husbands to destroy her life and steal her new born babies. Unfortunately, pride alone isn’t going to save her. When Captain Chad Danton answers a call about a prostitute soliciting at the local library, he discovers a determined woman in desperate need of medical care. Upon hearing Mary’s story, he resolves to help her, not realizing her enemies will join those who wish to destroy his career.


Chad’s eyes narrowed. “I was in the room when the father of the boy insisted his wife had accidentally cut off the oxygen. When Mary said she’d get a restraining order, he assured her he’d had already told the hospital to keep his wife away.”

Sanders sighed. “Well, they have no record of that request, if he made it. Last night, the baby’s IV was removed. And there’s no way that can be considered accidental. Those incubators are not easy to open, and an alarm should have gone off when it happened.”

Chad shook his head. “That sounds like something a nurse would know how to do.”

Sanders grimaced. “Not if she plans to keep her license.”

“Check out Nurse Hadley. She seems to have some vested interest in this.” He then told Sanders everything he knew about Mary Mason and her tormentors.

Sanders scratched his head when Chad stopped talking. “You might want to let Captain Wiggens know. When I asked him for police protection on the baby boy and Mary this morning, he…”

“He what?”

Sanders grimaced. “He turned me down and yelled at me for wasting time on this case.”

Chad’s brow rose. “And did you tell him I personally assigned you to the case?”

Sanders nodded. “I did mention that. He assured me you’d be gone in a week and then he’d be chief of police.” Sanders sighed. “I sure hope he’s wrong about that. I have to tell you, sir. Most of your force is very happy to have a real cop in charge. We’d like to keep you for a long time.”
