Darkroom By Joshua Graham

I received this book from Howard Publishing for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book.

Book Description:

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, in her darkroom, 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, Peter Carrick, a Pulitzer Prize laureate who served as an embedded photographer during the war, she confronts him about a dark secret he has kept—a secret that has devastated their family. Her investigations lead her to her departed mother’s journal, which tells 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. Darkroom is a riveting tale of suspense that tears the cover off the human struggle for truth in a world imprisoned by lies.

My Thoughts:

Darkroom is the first book by Joshua Graham I have read and I am hooked.  I cannot wait to have the time to read the other books he has written.  Darkroom is full of suspense and intrigue, keeps you guessing until the end.  Right from the start I was taken in by this book and couldn't put it down.  Joshua Graham writes a fast paced thriller that keeps you on your toes.  Darkroom is set in the present with flashbacks to the time of Vietnam.  The characters in this story are awesome and multifaceted.  Joshua Graham writes with authority on government agencies, Vietnam now and during the war, and supernatural visions.  This story also has a focus on faith and spiritual awakening.  I truly enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more by Joshua Graham. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Suspense, it will NOT disappoint.
