Adam Blumer in his new book, “tenth Plague book coverThe Tenth Plague” Book Two in the Thayer Mystery series published by Kirkdale Press takes us into the life of Marc and Gillian Thayer.

From the Back Cover:  Water turns to blood. Flies and gnats attack the innocent.

Marc and Gillian Thayer’s vacation resort becomes a grisly murder scene, with a killer using the ten plagues of Egypt as his playbook for revenge.

When their friend turns up dead, Marc and Gillian put their vacation on hold, enlist the help of a retired homicide detective, and take a closer look at the bizarre plagues as they escalate in intensity. Meanwhile, a stranger is after the Thayers’ newly adopted baby. Will they uncover the truth behind the bitter agenda before the tenth plague, the death of the firstborn son?

Marc and Gillian Thayer have accepted an invitation to spend the weekend at a luxury resort. Shortly after their arrival bizarre events began to materialize. The plagues of Egypt as described in the biblical account from Exodus begin to reoccur, transforming the resort into chaos. Not only that an elusive killer appears to be on the loose somewhere in or around the resort property. His motives are unsettling and his methods to murder are maniacal. If you are in the mood for some crime solving, lots of danger, really diabolical villains, and plenty of fun trying to figure out the criminal mastermind then you have come to the right place. “The Tenth Plague” is a thriller, no doubt about it.  Just when you think you might know where the story is heading Mr. Blumer tosses in another turn which you take at high-speed on two wheels.  Mr. Blumer makes his Marc and Gillian so real that you feel that you are there with them at the resort and you root for them to succeed. Mr. Blumer knows how to tell a story that keeps you flipping the pages and guessing as to who the bad guy really is.  This is a wild ride read. I am so looking forward to the next offering from this highly talented author.

Book Review: “The Warrior Spy” by Dony Jay

Dony Jay in his new book, “The Warrior Spy book coverThe Warrior Spy” Book One in the Warrior Spy series published by Merry Hill Publishing introduces us to Reagan Rainey.

From the back cover:  The CIA has a problem. Its best clandestine operatives keep turning up dead. And now, as if things couldn’t get any worse, a Defense Department scientist, specializing in high-energy lasers, has gone missing. America needs answers. And fast.

Delta Force operator Reagan Rainey, on temporary duty assignment with a secret CIA entity known as Directorate Twelve, is tasked to do just that–get answers. But to do so, he not only has to outwit and outmaneuver a dangerous cabal of foreign actors believed to be at the center of it all, he must contend with a deadly assassin who is bent on destroying him.

Relying on his bedrock faith in Almighty God, Rainey is forced to race against the clock to uncover what is really going on and why, before his beloved America is pushed to the brink of war.

How would you define “exciting”? The Dictionary defines it as, “to arouse or stir up“. If we could list book titles as definitions then we would certainly list “The Warrior Spy” in first place as exciting. If Hollywood really wanted to film the perfect blockbuster summer movie then “The Warrior Spy” would be the book to film with only the best director and actors. Here is what I recommend:  eat dinner early, go to the bathroom, make your popcorn and turn off all your phones. You are not going to want to be disturbed while you are reading and you will want to finish the book before you go to bed. Dony Jay knows how to write a perfect thriller. In this book we are introduced to Reagan Rainey for the first time. He is a phenomenal character and I already look forward to the next book he appears in. The action flies in this book and the suspense builds and builds with each page. All I can say is that you will be riveted as you flip pages as fast as you can read. You will not be disappointed. I recommend this book with enthusiasm!

Book Review: “I Am No One” by Patrick Flanery

Patrick Flanery in his new book, “I Am No One book coverI Am No One” published by Tim Duggan Books introduces us to Jeremy O’Keefe.

From the back cover:  A tense, mesmerizing novel about memory, privacy, fear, and what happens when our past catches up with us.

After a decade living in England, Jeremy O’Keefe returns to New York, where he has been hired as a professor of German history at New York University. Though comfortable in his new life, and happy to be near his daughter once again, Jeremy continues to feel the quiet pangs of loneliness. Walking through the city at night, it’s as though he could disappear and no one would even notice.

But soon, Jeremy’s life begins taking strange turns: boxes containing records of his online activity are delivered to his apartment, a young man seems to be following him, and his elderly mother receives anonymous phone calls slandering her son. Why, he wonders, would anyone want to watch him so closely, and, even more upsetting, why would they alert him to the fact that he was being watched?

As Jeremy takes stock of the entanglements that marked his years abroad, he wonders if he has unwittingly committed a crime so serious that he might soon be faced with his own denaturalization. Moving towards a shattering reassessment of what it means to be free in a time of ever more intrusive surveillance, Jeremy is forced to ask himself whether he is ‘no one’, as he believes, or a traitor not just to his country but to everyone around him. 

“I Am No One” is an interesting book that has a lot going on within it. Patrick Flanery has given us a multi-faceted character in Jeremy O’Keefe. As the reader we are not sure of where we stand with Jeremy. It is like sitting on the see-saw, one moment we are in one position the next moment the other position. We are never sure of where we are so that forces us to constantly re-evaluate the information we are being given. So we have to read as quickly as we can work to figure out just what is going on. “I Am No One” is loaded with twists and turns and red herrings that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. There is a lot going on I do not believe you will not be disappointed.
