At Shutter Speed
by Rebecca Burrell


Overview -

In the click of a shutter, #Resistance becomes more than just a hashtag.

Pass the bar exam. Convince someone--anyone--in the Egyptian government to admit they've imprisoned your husband. Don't lose your mind. For fledgling human rights attorney Leah Cahill, the past six months have been a trial by fire, ever since Matty, a respected but troubled war photojournalist, disappeared during a crackdown in Cairo.

As the daughter of a civil rights icon, Leah grew up wanting to change the world; Matty showed her she could. Though frustrated by the US government's new fondness for dictators, she persists, until a leaked email reveals a crumbling democracy far closer to home.

Risking her own freedom, she gains proof that Matty is being detained at a U.S. 'black site', stemming from his work covering the refugee crisis in Syria. Armed with his photo archives, she plunges into their past together, a love story spanning three continents. She uncovers secrets involving Matty's missionary childhood, her own refugee work, and the only story the deeply principled reporter ever agreed to bury. It's what got him captured--and what might still get him killed. With Leah's last chance to save him slipping away, Matty's biggest secret may be one he's willing to die to protect.
