Description

THE FACTS
Julian Roman, age sixteen, is an escapee from the Fairmount County Juvenile Detention Facility.
His parents, Michael Roman and Jennifer Roman, are dead.
Julian is wanted for murder.

THE QUESTIONS
Why is Julian Roman on the run?
Just how dangerous is he?
And who did kill Michael and Jennifer Roman, if not Julian?
Sixteen-year-old Day Connor views life through the lens of her camera, where perspective is everything. But photographs never tell the whole story. After Day crosses paths with Julian, the world she pictures and the truths she believes-neatly captured in black and white-begin to blur.

Julian is not the "armed and dangerous" escapee the police are searching for, but his alibis don't quite add up, either. There is more to his story. This time, Day is determined to see the entire picture . . . whatever it reveals. Did he? Or didn't he?

Day digs deeper into the case while Julian remains on the run. But the longer her list of facts becomes, the longer the list of questions becomes, too. It's also getting harder to deny the chemistry she feels for him. Is it real? Or is she being manipulated?

Day is close to finding the crack in the case. She just needs time to focus before the shutter snaps shut.

Laurie Faria Stolarz is a master of suspense and romance. Shutter will keep readers guessing until the very end.
