I hadn’t read any of Jason Little‘s work before Shutterbug Follies, but I enjoyed the story and was charmed by the illustrations. It’s a fun thriller that I found more engaging than most stories within that genre because the characterization was strong and the plot strange enough to not be tangled in cliché.
Opening pages of the book are available digitally, but there doesn’t seem to be an ebook version available.
A plucky and insatiably curious young woman, Bee works for a photofinishing technician at a one-hour lab in lower Manhattan. When pictures of a naked corpse are left for processing, Bee’s curiosity goes into high gear. “Shutterbug Follies” is a comic murder mystery filled with unlikely coincidences, humorous misunderstandings, and hairbreadth escapes.
