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...

  Praise for Shadow Girl:
I enjoyed the characters a lot. Max and Afton seem to play off of each other well as far as figuring things out. ~Valerie's Musings

This is one of those books where the bad men are really bad, and everyone in the case is hiding something to have a money profit... ~Varietats

Afton was a likable character for me. She seemed in tune with some of the other characters. She is good at her job. ~A. Holland Reads

Shadow Girl by Gerry Schmitt is one of the most gripping and chilling books I've read this year. ~Back Porchervations

The mystery and suspense aspect of this book was great. This was a definite page-turner. ~Bookworm Cafe

Can I just say Wow! It's been awhile since I sat and read a book that terrified me with precision action that intrigued me so much it was impossible to put the book down. ~Texas Book-aholic

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. ~Brooke Blogs

This is a serious thriller with a lot going on. There's surface to air missiles, conspiracies to kill no matter who gets hurt and what has to be done, and characters with some seriously shady backstories. ~I Wish I Lived In a Library

From page 1 I was engaged in a thrilling and suspenseful ride! ~My Reading Journeys

As the chapters unfold we get a good look at things from both the good guys’ and the bad guys’ perspectives. This gives you a first-hand understanding of the killer’s motives, but in no way takes away from the suspense or the desire to see Afton and Max bring her to justice. ~The Book's the Thing

A page turner like you never read before, Shadow Girl is a deeply rooted thriller in the art of murder, mystery, and revenge. ~Bibliophile Reviews
