Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE . . .

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.

Author Bio

Joshua Graham earned his doctorate from Johns Hopkins University, and a master's degree from Juilliard. He has performed as a soloist and principal cellist domestically and internationally. Today he lives with his wife and children in San Diego. Graham has served on the faculties of Columbia Union College, Western Maryland College, Shepherd College, and Brooklyn College.

Publisher's Weekly

Graham’s tepid supernatural thriller pits Vietnamese-American photographer Xandra Carrick against a powerful array of interests determined to keep a long-held secret of the Vietnam War from affecting current U.S. political interests. Xandra’s father, photojournalist Peter Carrick, rescued, then married Grace Th’am Ai Le before returning to America after Saigon’s fall in 1975. In 2008, after Grace’s death, Peter and Xandra transport Grace’s ashes to her Vietnamese village, where Xandra takes photos with her dad’s old Graflex. When Xandra develops the film, she begins having visions—seeing things in the photos that can’t be there. Her visions are enough to threaten the discovery of the horrific secrets her father has hidden and unleash not only governmental forces but also an assassin determined to assure those secrets remain buried. Graham (Beyond Justice) telegraphs too much of the plot, and Xandra finds all too timely help of both a spiritual and temporal nature as her fate becomes entwined with that of the U.S. presidency.
