The Adventures of Xavier & Vic, Bk 6, The Darkest Days @Liza0Connor


BLURB
          When the pot has too many cooks a feast can be ruined, and that’s exactly what happens with Xavier and Vic’s new cases. Each proves more complicated than initially thought with criminals dropping out of the sky, wreaking havoc upon Xavier, Vic, and their excellent employees. By the end, Vic threatens to open a school that teaches criminals how to stay out of each other’s way.

Worse yet, a treasured member of the staff is shot in the heart while attempting to save Vic and the Queen’s cousin.

EXCERPT

Frederick’s eldest son stood at the kitchen table, wrapping a torn swatch of fabric around his sister’s neck. His intense, almost wild stare, indicated the boy was very close to breaking.

The constable was seated in the corner of the kitchen enjoying a cup of tea.

Jacko went to the boy. “Leeson, you don’t need to do that.”

The boy stopped. “The constable said he planned to take her into town on the back of his horse.” His jaw clenched. “I don’t want her head falling off.”

Jacko gripped his shoulders. “The constable is not taking your sister on his horse.” He glared at the fool sipping his tea. “If you must transport Daisy’s body to a doctor for his official declaration of death, I will provide a wagon.”

The constable took another sip of his tea, studying Jacko over the edge of the cup. “You are most helpful, Mr. Bienora, most helpful indeed.” He then stood. “And since you are so interested in this case, perhaps you will be so kind as to drive the wagon.”

“If you do not know how to drive a wagon, I will provide you a driver,” Jacko snapped.

“I would prefer you to drive. And don’t claim you don’t know how. I believe Jacko Black not only knows how to drive a wagon but captain a ship as well.”

The constable smiled as he aimed his gun at Jacko’s chest. “It took me a moment to recognize you, dressed in those fine clothes, but I’m good with names and faces, and you, sir, are an accomplished murderer. However, this is without a doubt, your most despicable crime yet. And finally, you will hang.”

Liza O’Connor was raised badly by feral cats, left the South/Midwest and wandered off to find nicer people on the east coast. There she worked for the meanest man on Wall Street, while her psychotic husband tried to kill her three times. (So much for finding nicer people.) Then one day she declared enough, got a better job, divorced her husband, and fell in love with her new life where people behaved nicely. But all those bad behaviors has given her lots of fodder for her humorous books. Please buy these books, because otherwise, she’ll become grumpy and write troubled novels instead. They will likely traumatize you.
You have been warned.

SAVING MOLLY BY LIZA O'CONNOR




By
Liza O’Connor
Book 2 of the
Requires Rescue Series
Contemporary Suspense
Sometimes even the strong
requires a helping hand.

Blurb


Molly Brown always faces life with a smile, even when a frightening thug is intent upon killing her. At first, Detective Sean Cushing finds Molly’s cheery disposition unnatural, especially when he discovers the seriousness of her injuries. When she asks for police protection, he instead offers her a job and home being a nanny to his five-year-old daughter, hoping her cheery disposition can pull his child from her dark hole of misery. Never did he expect he’d be proposing marriage within a day, but life has a way of going in odd directions when Molly Brown is involved.


EXCERPT


“So why’d you get fired?”
Silence.
He glanced down at her. She was mauling her lip. “If I’m going to find you a new job and a place to stay, I need to know.”
The brilliant smile returned. “You’re going to find me both?”
“Depends on why you got fired.”
Her brow furrowed. “I’m not really sure why. I thought I was doing a good job. My boss seemed happy. He didn’t like my clothes—said they were too dowdy. He thought I should dress like Angie, but I wasn’t comfortable wearing…”
“Wearing what?”
“So little. It didn’t seem professional to me.”
“So he fired you for failing to dress sexy?” Sean asked.
“Not directly. He just stopped being pleased with me. In fact, he’d frown every time he saw me.”
“So how’d you get fired?” Why was it that no one could just answer his questions?
“He called me into his office and told me it was time I stopped with the child routine and grow up. He had arranged for me to meet a client in his home, and my job was to make the client happy…so happy he’d buy a thousand top-of-the-line copiers for the company. This sale would be twenty percent of our annual sales, so I couldn’t screw it up.”

“What did you say?”
“I said I didn’t think I was ready for such an important sale and he should send someone else, like Clark.” She paused and explained, “In my opinion, Clark is the best salesman in the office. My boss said Clark wouldn’t do. The client didn’t swing that way.”
Several cops standing in the hall stared their way. “Keep your voice down,” Sean whispered.

Sean really needed to know what Molly heard, because G-Man had no trouble ordering a hit, and DTX had no problem fulfilling the order. “Well, matters can go very bad for you if you don’t tell me what he said.”
 After a long pause, she continued, “His boss said a shipment of goods was coming into JFK tonight. The mules were puppies.”
She went silent.
“Anything else?”
“He said to take the puppies to the meadowlands and gut them there. That caused me to gasp in horror and stare at the scary man. The moment I realized he knew that I had heard his boss on the phone, I took off running and he’s been following me for the last five hours.”
“You’ve been running for five hours?” God, just when he’d start to believe something out of her cheery, smiling mouth, she’d throw out a load of crap too big to swallow.
“Well, it began as a full out run for my life, that slowed to a track race, then downgraded to a marathon run. My hams got shaky so I dropped to a jog until they blew out entirely, and I could only walk. But I kept moving because I could still hear the scary man behind me. He has a high pierce wheeze.
Sean shook his head. He honestly had no idea if Molly Brown was an informant to a potential drug bust or a complete loon.
