Synopsis:

Burned, scarred, and left for dead, Jimmy Tasker is running from everyone.

The blaze changed him—changed the way his brain fires—and left someone else in his head with him. Someone who wants to kill for fun.

He changes his name, buries his past, starts a new life…and disappears.

Years later, four friends from the city are hard up. Steve needs work, Gil’s jumpy, Peter is struggling, and Cal’s an addict. So they plan a robbery. Steve backs out, but the other three go through with it and botch the job, resulting in the death of Lauren Westerbrook.

Ronan Westerbrook has a hidden past, a love of photography…and a fondness for flame.

Ronan’s revenge for his wife’s death culminates in a bloodbath—and unleashes Jimmy, who was there all along, tormented by nightmares of atrocities he has no idea if he truly committed.

Steve is trying to build a respectable life, but now Jimmy has one last piece of unfinished business…the only witness who can identify him.

My Review: 

Shutter Speed is a cleverly written story of Jimmy, a bullied little boy, who just wants to be left alone to take pictures–the only thing that gives him happiness. Eventually, that little boy grows up and into a twisted version of himself, a warped human hiding in plain sight.

But his facade of normalcy is ripped away one night, revealing that Jimmy is no longer someone who can be pushed around. He pushes back now, and stabs, and tears…

There are a few scenes of “Yikes!”, but I wouldn’t call this horror; it’s a thriller and a well executed one.

Check out the book trailer for Shutter Speed.

Bio:

Mark Taylor crash landed on planet earth in 1975. Then he started writing. He writes macabre, dark, stories, with a brooding style. He has enjoyed releases of both novel and short story collection alike.

Some of Mark’s work is about kittens and daisies. Just not very much.

Some say he is a product of his environment, others, a product of his own imagination.

Whichever it is he works happily, portraying dark existences on this planet and others. He relays his fears and doubts on his characters, so always has a smile. If Mark is real, as some say he is, you might find him in England.

Perhaps.
