BOOK REVIEW: Darkroom by Joshua Graham

Review by Ryder Islington

I love this story!

 Xandra Carrick and her dad go toViet Nam to scatter her mother’s ashes in the village where she and Xandra’s dad met. Xandra’s dad, Peter, was a photojournalist during the war, and Xandra followed in his footsteps, loving the use of pictures to tell stories.

 There is a deep, dark secret in Peter’s past, one that could get him and his daughter killed. I won’t give away more than that. The story is too good to be spoiled by a review. The truth of the past, plus Xandra’s love for her parents and Peter’s desire to leave the past alone, keep the reader turning pages to learn what was so bad back then, and why it has any importance now. Never mind her arrest for terrorism, murder and an assassination attempt on the American president.

 This is not a book to be missed by those who love thrillers, mysteries, love stories, history, politics, and the supernatural. Mr. Graham has covered it all. I recommend this book for anyone who likes to read mysteries or thrillers. It is filled with suspense, peopled by sympathetic characters, and leads to a very satisfying end for the good guys, as well as the bad.
