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..."

My Review

This is the second book in this series. The first one I could not stop reading. A little of that excitement went down in this book but not too terribly bad. Afton is still one tough lady. I mean you know you are tangling with a fierce woman when your boss tells you that they are going to need to bring a wet-dry vac to clean up the body after you took down the bad guy. However, not to be counted out is Afton's partner, Max. He stepped up in a big way. I really took notice of him more this time and felt like he was evenly matched with Afton.

The only issue I had with this book is that I was not as engaged in the story. There was nothing appealing about Leland Odin and therefore I didn't feel concern for the fact that the helicopter carrying his heart was blown out of the sky. However, the people behind it kept the story interesting with all of the bodies they left in their wake to cover up the truth. Yet, still good reading.
