A thrilling suspense novel about a man’s dark past, his daughter’s mysterious visions, and a psychopath who wants to kill them both.
After scattering her mother’s ashes in Vietnam, photojournalist Xandra Carrick moves home to New York to rebuild her life and career. When she experiences supernatural visions that reveal atrocities perpetrated by American 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, a Pulitzer Prize winner 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.

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.

Darkroom is a riveting tale of suspense that tears the covers off the human struggle for truth in a world imprisoned by lies.

My Review:
I am a huge Joshua Graham fan. I fell in love with his mind blowing work when I read his novel, Beyond Justice. He draws his readers into the heart of the story instantly and grips their hearts so strongly, you can’t help but turn page after page and read late into the night. Darkroom is a thousand times better than Beyond Justice was, and Beyond Justice was fantastic!

Darkroom takes you to the life of a young woman, working as a photojournalist who experiences paranormal visions. Desperate to find out the truth behind the visions, she confronts her father about them. What she finds out is so much more than she bargained for. Tangled in a web of secrets and conspiracies, Xandra’s story becomes life. Her story unfolds before the reader as she uncovers the truths behind the happenings in Vietnam. But, one this is for sure, someone doesn’t want her to reveal that truth, and sets out to stop her efforts.

I don’t want to give too much away. This is just too good of a book to reveal anything more. I want you to grab a copy of this book now, sit down, and get lost in the pages. They won’t be light reading. After all, what conspiracy is ever light? But, you’ll get sucked into the vortex of the story and where you’ll end up…..well, lets just say that the ending is powerful and leaves you hungry for more!!!

I definitely recommend this. It’s so beyond 5000 stars worthy. The intensity and heart pounding thrills you’ll feel as you read each page, each characters piece of the story will leave you breathless. Blending history with current events, Mr. Graham is a talented author who can wrap the reader in a cocoon of emotions from bitterness to redemption and leave the reader feeling as if they were the story, as if they were ones plotted against. A fantastic job, Mr. Graham! I can’t wait for the next story!
