EXCERPT from CHALLENGING THE LEGACY
The ex-police officer who had been stealing babies to sell to wealthy couples desperate to have a child was still lurking about. Still a danger to everyone he thought had disrupted his money-making scheme...Tallie still didn't like it, but she understood why her sons moved forward to eliminate Swaggerty before he could cause more harm.
Aaron Swaggerty's death brought some semblance of peace to the O'Sheas and those connected with them…However, Swaggerty's death also raised more questions...For years, Tallie had heard rumors the Halo Police Department had been deeply corrupt. Bernie had been instrumental in disbanding that department and shifting law enforcement duties to the county sheriff's office.
However, he also hinted at deeper connections to crime but stopped short of telling Tallie his suspicions. He simply said the less she knew, the better. As with the secret of Marly's parentage, this was one of the few issues on which they agreed to disagree.
When Marly and Dawson showed up on her doorstep with the news Collin had been shot, Tallie once again felt the dark evil of the past trying to choke off her life.
"He was only wounded, Mom." Marly took Tallie's hand. "We've already picked up Beth to go to the hospital in Pendleton."
Tallie forced herself to swallow. Tried to breathe. This wasn't an accident. Just like Bernie's death.
