Dark Room by Joshua Graham


After scattering her mother's ashes in Vietnam, photojournalist Xandra Carrick comes home to New York to rebuild her life and career. When she experiences supernatural visions that reveal atrocities perpetrated byAmerican soldiers during the Vietnam War, she finds herself entangled in a forty-year-old conspiracy that could bring the nation into political turmoil.

Launching headlong into a quest to learn the truth from her father, Peter Carrick, a Pulitzer Prize Laureate who served as an embedded photographer during the war, Xandra confronts him about a dark secret he has kept--one that has devastated their family.

Her investigations lead her to her departed mother's journal, which tell of love, spiritual awakening, and surviving the fall of Saigon.

Pursued across the continent, Xandra comes face-to-face with powerful forces that will stop at nothing to prevent her from revealing the truth. But not before government agencies arrest her for murder, domestic terrorism and an assassination attempt on the newly elected president of the United States.


My Review:

Darkroom was everything I enjoy in a novel - intrigue, action, romance, family drama. As a reader my heart went out to Xandra time and again. I have to admit that the beginning was a bit slow, I don't think I would've continued reading if I hadn't been asked to review the book but I was so glad I did keep reading. The plot was intricately woven and needed the slower setup at the beginning to work all the details in that made this book so interesting. I would highly recommend Darkroom and look forward to reading Joshua Graham's other novels.
