Review

Darkroom is a fascinating, fast-paced, beautifully written story of love and war, murder, terrorism, and a dark conspiracy."

—Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Cold Vengeance and The Monster of Florence

Darkroom comes complete with a great mystery, unearthed secrets, and beguiling adventure. Joshua Graham mines an emotional landscape through an entourage of fascinating characters. Read this one—and take a walk on the perilous side.

—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Jefferson Key

Bravo! Graham takes characters and puts them inside each others lives in such a way that it's impossible to put his book down until the last word is read. . . . [His] power with words is absolutely incredible and paints one of the most powerful pictures I've ever seen, anywhere.

Suspense Magazine

Mixing the end of the Vietnam War with a young woman's paranormal visions of a murder in today's New York, Graham has created a modern political thriller wrapped in a historical puzzle inside a tale of redemption. The short chapters, told from the point of view of the various characters, give it a cinematic feel and a breakneck pace.

Mr. Graham immediately grabs hold of the reader with the tenacity of a pit bull and will not let go until you have read every last page and emerge exhausted and happily satiated from this astonishing ride. . . . I would not hesitate to recommend Darkroom . . . You won't be disappointed."

East County Magazine

"Graham takes us on a ride full of twists and turns in this emotionally charged quest to find the truth. . . . I actually found myself holding my breath at times and sympathizing with the characters, feeling outrage when they were wronged, hating the villains or even forgiving them. When it was all said and done, I didn’t feel like I had finished a book; I felt like I had been on a journey."

—The Top Shelf Book Reviews

“The intensity and heart pounding thrills you'll feel as you read each page [of Darkroom] 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 in the story, as if they were the ones plotted against. A fantastic job!”

Format: Paperback
Graham has crafted a novel with intense action from start to finish.
Xandra Carrick is following in her father's footsteps. He was a photographer embedded with the army in Viet Nam. What he saw there he has kept hidden for 35 years. Xandra is a well known photojournalist for a national newspaper. She has traveled the world, photographing the anguish of humanity in turmoil.
The novel opens as Xandra and her father go back to Viet Nam to spread the ashes of her mother. She has taken with her the old film camera her father used all those years ago. Back in New York, she begins to develop the film. As each print of the Viet Nam landscape emerges, she sees momentary images. Death.
She is stunned, overwhelmed by what she is sure her father saw and photographed. She experiments with the camera, taking photos of the park near her apartment. When she develops the photos of the park pond, she momentarily sees a body.
Then the nightmare begins. When she attempts to anonymously report the possibility of a body in the pond, the police come to her and shortly arrest her for the murder.
The situation only gets worse. A senator, running as an independent, will stop at nothing to assure he is elected president. That includes keeping hidden the slaughter he condoned in Viet Nam. Xandra quickly rises to the top of his list of those needing to be silenced - permanently.

This novel has intense action, nearly continuous. At times I had to tell my self to breath - it's only a novel. This fast paced novel has political intrigue, strained family dynamics, and romance. It explores the horrors of war along side that of a warped man bent on political power. It touches on the supernatural, the move of the Spirit revealing truth through visions.

What words or images come into your mind when you see the word darkroom? Is there any particular activity that you connect with this word? Joshua Graham is a new author to me, and I can tell you that if he continues to write at this level, I am hooked! The novel uses flashbacks to the time the United States was involved in Vietnam. Interspersed throughout the pages are recent past events in U.S. History. Especially compelling is the thread of presidential elections and thoughts by the characters of the two main parties involved in the political arena.
Colson is running as an independent candidate who seeks to be the next President of the Unites States, bringing with him the hopes for a brighter future. The FBI seeks to solve a murder of a young college student or is there more to this? Xandi is the daughter of a photojournalist who was in Vietnam and witnessed horrifying events. Being attached to particular group of Marines, the pictures the photojournalist takes portray the horror that is surrounding him. Is that all there is to the situation when years later he is being hunted by the FBI? The same person who tries to befriend Xandi is also an FBI agent and has a tie to the history of Vietnam. How long has he been involved in discovering a plot? What plot? Who is calling the shots and doing his bidding?
The novel is a page-turner from the prologue to the last page, and like real life, not everything ends well. Okay, maybe some things do, but not everything.

Xandra Carrick is a photographer following in the footsteps of her father. Peter Carrick is a Nobel Prize winning photo-journalist. His prize came for his photo essay on a massacre in a Vietnamese village during the war. The camera he's used has been passed down to his daughter Xandra. It is this camera that is at the source of this surreal journey. It begins on a trip back to Vietnam that Xandra and her father take. The trip was to honor her late mother's wishes and to release her ashes there. But strange things begin to happen when Xandra develops the film. What are those things? You'll have to read Darkroom find out.

The story is a thriller and a vivid retelling of historic events. Each chapter is seen in first person point of view. Mr. Graham alternates between characters from Grace, to Ian, to Xandra. Grace's story is achieved through her diary entries. These diary entries really bring the Vietnam War to life in alarming detail. In Particular, Mr. Graham covers the fall of Saigon in a very realistic manner. I'd seen the videos of it happening, and he captured it very well in the pages of this story.

If you like Thrillers, or the odd story you'd see on Twilight Zone, then grab this book when it's released. You'll enjoy every minute of it. Kudos to Mr. Graham on another job well done.

Xandra Carrick is an award winning photojournalist for the New York Times. At the age of twenty-seven, she's following in the footsteps of her father, Peter Carrick, a Pulitzer Prize photojournalist who was embedded with the US Army in Vietnam during the war.

Xandra and Peter travel to her mother's birthplace, Vietnam, to honor her dying wish by scattering her ashes. While in Vietnam, Xandra takes pictures using an old camera that Peter had used during the Vietnam War. Upon returning home to New York, she develops the film and sees disturbing paranormal visions of images of death. Stunned by the visions, she uses the camera to take pictures at a local park near her apartment. When she develops the pictures from the park, she sees a body in the pond, so she calls the police to report what she saw in her pictures, but she finds herself arrested for the murder of a young woman, a student at Juilliard. Out on bail, Xandra leaves NY for California in search of answers to the disturbing visions that she saw in the pictures, and she knows that the answers can only come from her father. Can Xandra solve the mystery behind the disturbing visions from Vietnam? Was her father part of a conspiracy while he was stationed in Vietnam? Can she prove that she is innocent of the murder she is accused of, or will someone stop her from revealing the secrets and truth that have long been buried?

Darkroom is a riveting political mystery suspense thriller that will have the reader sitting on the edge of their seat. The story is set in alternating time periods between the present and flashbacks to the Vietnam War, and intriguingly narrated with alternating first person perspectives by different characters.
