Book Review-Shadow Girl by Gerry Schmitt

About the book (provided by Great Escapes Tours)
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…
And I thought
I was introduced to this author a few months ago when I read one of her Cozy Mysteries.  I suspected that I would be drawn into this story. 
I wasn't disappointed.  From page 1 I  was engaged in a thrilling and suspenseful ride!
The characters are engaging and interesting.  The story/plot keeps you on the edge of your seat.  
I was amazed at how the author goes from cozy mystery to a thriller. 
If your a fan of suspenseful thrillers you won't be disappointed! 

Although Shadow Girl is book 2 in the series this reader was not 
left wanting.    
I look forward to reading more in the Afton Tangler series!

I received a complimentary copy from Great Escapes Tours.
