About the Book
Danger, biological curiosities, murder, sex, and government conspiracies are about to collide. Smile and Walk Away, the first book of Danielle Riedel’s Shatter series, will be released this spring.
Velma Bloom is a young woman with a power shrouded in mystery, and Jackson Duran is a rookie detective with a unique set of morals.

Smile and Walk Away will make you question what people are really capable of, both morally and scientifically. Speculate at your own risk.
