Publisher's Summary

Jenny McAllister might not have been the most beautiful woman in the great hall, but she was certainly the most memorable. Even in the London high society of Wallis Simpson’s circle, the passion in her face drew attention, as if there were a flame inside her that no pain or fear could quench. The Great War had been over for eighteen years, but the horror of it still permeated everything. The remnants of a lost generation danced too wildly and laughed with too much ease. The cocktails, the music, and the elegance masked the fear, but did not hide it.

Interesting murder mystery short story

The setting is more interesting to me than the plot. The setting is in 1936 England after King Edward VIII had proposed to twice divorced American Wallis Simpson and before he had abdicated the throne to marry her. A photographer was trying to get a photo of Edward's bride-to-be at an event. She instead took very poor photos of a murder. Shutter Speed is the 6th of 7 short stories in this series.
