Adam Blumer fixes other people’s books to pay the bills. He writes his own to explore creepy lighthouses and crime scenes. He is the author of four clean Christian thrillers: Fatal Illusions, The Tenth Plague, Kill Order, and the upcoming Termination Zone. He also wrote the upcoming novella Death the Halls, to be released in a Christmas suspense collection in October. A print journalism major in college, he works full-time from home as a book editor after serving in editorial roles for more than twenty-five years. He lives in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with his wife, Kim, and his daughters, Laura and Julia. When he’s not working on his next thriller, he’s hiking in the woods or learning new chords on his guitar.

Check them out in "Partners in Crime" or "By the Prickling of My Thumbs." These are great reads, by the way. (less)

This was a decent read. The writing was clever and creative, and the plot was compelling. Characterizations, though, were pretty flat. I really liked the chase scenes in Russia, especially one featuring scuba diving. I didn't care for Charles's decei ...more

Adam Blumer answered a question about The Innocent Man:
The Innocent Man by John Grisham
This is definitely not that similar to "In Cold Blood." Capote used a lot of fiction technique to tell the story and paint the characters. Grisham pretty much just tells the story with dialogue mixed in from interviews and investigation transcripts. See Full Answer

I'm afraid this one was rather a mixed bag for me. James, as always, excels in plotting, pacing, and the authenticity of an FBI agent. He knows how to write suspense, and writers can learn so much just by studying his pacing and style. I typically lo ...more

“I’d become a thief and an assassin, programmed against my knowledge and will. Someone had stolen the most important things about me—my identity, my reputation. My free will. Now I’d become a slave. A slave to a terrible agenda. And powerless to break free.”
Adam Blumer, Kill Order

“It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt of it.”
Maurice Switzer, Mrs. Goose, Her Book

“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“When a person dies, the earth is generally unwilling to cough him back up. A miracle contradicts the will of earth.”
Leif Enger, Peace Like a River

“In reference to the search for Lincoln's killers as it took to the Maryland swamps:

"The method of searching the swamps is simple yet arduous. First, the troops assemble on the edge of bogs with names like Allen’s Creek, Scrub Swamp, and Atchall’s Swamp, standing at loose attention in the shade of a thick forest of beech, dogwood, and gum trees. Then they form two lines and march straight forward, from one side to the other. As absurd as it seems to the soldiers, marching headlong into cold mucky water, there is no other way of locating Booth and Herold. Incredibly, eighty-seven of these brave men will drown in their painstaking weeklong search for the killers.”
Bill O'Reilly, Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever

“Do nothing that you would not like God to see. Say nothing you would not like God to hear. Write nothing you would not like God to read. Go no place where you would not like God to find you. Read no book of which you would not like God to say, "Show it to Me."
Never spend your time in such a way that you would not like to have God say, "What are you doing?”
J.C. Ryle
