Combat Camera is evidence of a talent and voice worth encouraging, but its reliance on stock characters, clichés and predictable outcomes is disappointing.

Synopsis

You'd like to believe you're in some tale of sin and redemption. I guess we all like to think we're walking through some grand, redemptive story. Well, we're all going to end up disappointed. Disappointment is one of the two fates that we all must eventually meet.

When former Pulitzer Prize–winning combat photographer Lucas Zane washes up drunk, broken, and hallucinatory after covering the worst global conflagrations of the past two decades, he takes a job with a low-budget pornographic impresario, getting accidentally involved with one of his actresses, Melissa. After a horrific assault, Zane hatches a plan to rescue Melissa, his career, and, he hopes, himself.Combat Camera is a restless, tragic, blackly funny, hypnotic novel.
