The brutal murder of a business tycoon leaves Afton Tangler and the Twin Cities reeling, but that’s just the beginning of a gruesome crime spree…
Leland Odin made his fortune launching a home shopping network, but his millions can’t save his life. On the list for a transplant, the ailing businessman sees all hope lost when the helicopter carrying his donor heart is shot out of the sky.
Now with two pilots dead and dozens injured, Afton Tangler, family liaison officer for the Minneapolis Police Department, is drawn into the case. As she and her partner investigate family members and business associates, whoever wants Leland dead strikes again—and succeeds—in a brazen hospital room attack.
The supposedly squeaky clean millionaire has crossed the wrong person—and she’s not finished exacting her revenge. The case explodes into an international conspiracy of unbridled greed and violence. And as Afton gets closer to unearthing the mastermind behind it, she gets closer to becoming collateral damage…
Shadow Girl by Gerry Schmitt is the second Afton Tangler thriller. I have not yet read the first book in this series, but I was easily able to jump in and enjoy the story right away. It starts off with a bang (literally) and the suspense never lets up. I love stories that grip you right from the start and this thriller fits the bill.
Shadow Girl definitely has me hooked on this series, and I can’t wait to go back and read book one, Little Girl Gone. This book is perfect for anyone who enjoys an edge-of-your-seat thriller that keeps you flipping pages late into the night. Ms. Schmitt knocked it out of the park with this book.
