Publisher's Summary

It is early 1942, and Australia is in the midst of war. While working at a Japanese hospital in the port of Broome, Dr. Ibaraki is arrested and sent to Loveday internment camp in a remote corner of South Australia. As tensions at the isolated camp escalate, the doctor's beliefs are thrown into question, and he is forced to confront his past: the promise he made in Japan and its devastating consequences.


What the Critics Say

"Piper draws us deeper and deeper into the compelling story of Tomakazu Ibaraki, a man whose strengths - discretion, honour and loyalty - also lie at the heart of his personal tragedy." (Danielle Wood)
" After Darkness is about friendships that transcend clichéd notions of mateship. It's also about a man silenced by a promise...a haunting novel that lingers in a most unsettling way." (Fiona Stager)
