About the book:

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…

  1. This is my review of Shadow Girl. I was unable to post on time because my mother-in-law passed away. I'm glad I gave it the time it deserved because it was wonderful. My reviews are on Good Reads and Amazon. Hope this does not ruin my chances to review more books.ByAntonette C Nymanon August 9, 2017

    I did not read the first book, but did not find that to be a problem. I absolutely loved this story. It had so much action and detail in it that it was hard to put down. Gerry Schmitt is very good at detailing a story without bogging it down. It starts off with a bang - literally. A helicopter is shot down on it's way to deliver a donor heart. The recipient is to be a wealthy TV mogul. While the police are trying to figure out why the helicopter was shot down, Leland Odin, the TV mogul, is killed in his hospital room. Who did he cross and for what? We are taken on a wild ride through Minneapolis to try to figure this out. Soon a connection is found to Thailand and things really heat up. Afton risks a lot to help her partner Max put the pieces together. I must say again how much I loved piecing this mystery together only to have it go a different way again. Must read the first book now. Hope there are more to come.

  2. This one sounds suspenseful. I would like to read it. Interesting plot.

  3. I love when books grab you from the beginning & don't let go until the end.
