Buz Sawyers, faculty at The Art Institute of Dallas, a campus of South University and Argosy University, Dallas, recently released “Shutterbug,” an adventure-thriller about a Dallas photographer who inadvertently records a security hoax during a photo shoot with a U.S. Senator. Sawyers has previously published four books, from historical fiction to short stories to a murder mystery.

Synopsis: Brian Braun, a local Dallas photographer, believes he's hit Pulitzer pay-dirt when he receives an unusual call for an extraordinary photo shoot from a U.S. Senator. Afterward, however, Braun comes to realize his photographs have done more than record history: He's recorded one of the greatest hoaxes and politically devastating scandals that breeches beyond the boundaries of Watergate. The hoax is perpetrated on the American people by a private security firm that specializes in high profile political murder. Relying on his own streetwise wits, Braun has less than forty-eight hours to stay a step ahead of a highly motivated death squad and keep from being branded by history as the next Lee Harvey Oswald. Sawyers says, "Technical advice from a retired Dallas FBI agent, active officers of the Garland Police Department, and a professional photographer proved invaluable during writing to keeping the details accurate while, at the same time, the storyline realistic and suspenseful."

Sawyers’ book is available on Amazon
