Shadow Girl

An Afton Tangler Thriller, #2

In the Second Afton Tangler thriller by Gerry Schmitt (aka Laura Childs, Tea Shop Mysteries, Cackleberry Club, Scrapbooking Mysteries) our heroine finds herself drawn into a case of a home shopping network’s mogul fight for life. First the plane carrying his donor heart is shot out of the sky, then he is killed in a brazen hospital attack. It’s up to Afton to find out who’s after him and why…before Afton herself becomes a target.

Gerry Schmitt outdoes herself with her second foray into the thriller genre, evoking images of James Patterson with both plot and pacing. Her transition from cozy writer to thriller writer is seamless! One sincerely hopes that many more Tangler thrillers are in our future. Five stars – ROCCO LOTEMPIO


Book Blurb for Shadow Girl

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...
