From the Back Cover
"If you don't like tight, compelling, and convincing writing that is also witty and insightful, tossing off a critique of our culture which you can take or ignore, while informing you about some things you didn't know or hadn't actually considered . . . why, I guess this is not the novel for you. My biggest concern here is, does Maddox have some more of these in stock?"
-- Jon A. Jackson author of Hit on the House and No Man's Dog
"I couldn't put this novel down. Darkroom is suspenseful and beautifully written. Kelly Durrell is a deftly-drawn, intelligent, and likable heroine. There is humorous relief as well, and the art world setting adds another dimension to an already fantastic read."
-- Daiva Markelis, author of White Field, Black Sheep: A Lithuanian-American Life
"The plot is never predictable, the characters are complex and believable and her prose flows with beauty and clarity. The book has the added bonus of pushing us to ask ourselves: how strong would we be if faced with similar circumstances?"
-- Tahlia Newland, author of The Locksmith's Secret
