Being a subscriber to Deb’s Book Blast automatically qualifies you to be in the draw to win the Kindle version of Adam Blumer’s book, Kill Order. I’ll announce the winner of the draw at the end of this Book Blast.
If you’ve read any of my books you will know that I’m a conservative Christian writer who likes entertaining fiction with a distinctively Christian message. I look for other conservative Christian writers who write great fiction about characters whose actions reflect a high standard of ethics. At times these characters may go against these ethics but if they do, they should pay a price or recognize the need to change.
Adam Blumer is one of my conservative Christian writer friends who I’ve never met in person. Adam worked with Luke Bolton at Northland Baptist Bible College. Years later Luke became my son-in-law and introduced me to Adam online. At one point Adam and I finished writing our books about the same time and traded them for a critique. Adam has been helpful in my writer’s journey. He writes “meaningful suspense” that makes the reader think as well as turn the pages fast to find out what will happen. Adam has just released a new novel, Kill Order.
When he sleeps, the forgotten terrors of the past come alive.
Grammy-winning pianist Landon Jeffers’s brain cancer has given him only a few years to live. But when he sleeps, the forgotten terrors of his past torment him. When he wakes, shameful memories come rushing back. Desperate for answers, Jeffers discovers that a brain implant intended to treat his cancer is really a device to control him, forcing him to commit terrible crimes. Now he’s being manipulated by an evil crime syndicate and a crooked cop.
What if free will isn’t? What if your every move is predestined? If you kill, are you guilty of murder?

Aaron Gansky says, “With Kill Order, Blumer delivers another high-concept, high-stakes thriller. With an expansive cast and an intricate plot, readers will find themselves on a relentless ride that races forward to the final page. Fans of Dean Koontz’s thrillers will like this novel. But Kill Order offers even more: a look into responsibility and guilt, culpability and fear.”—Aaron Gansky, author of The Bargain, The Hand of Adonai Series, Who Is Harrison Sawyer?, Heart’s Song, and Firsts in Fiction

Q: Adam, is writing novels your full-time job? Tell us a little bit about yourself.
A: I fix other people’s books to pay the bills. I write my own to explore creepy lighthouses and crime scenes. I live in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with my wife, Kim, and daughters, Laura and Julia. I work with literary agent Cyle Young of Hartline Literary Agency.
Q: What other novels have you written?
A: My first novel is Fatal Illusions (Meaningful Suspense Press). The sequel is The Tenth Plague (Kirkdale Press). Both are available as paperbacks and e-books.
Q: What gave you the inspiration to write Kill Order?
A: My dad, Larry, passed away from brain cancer in 2011, and several aspects of his cancer journey kicked off the initial story idea. One key detail involved a medical procedure; the doctors agreed to remove as much of my dad’s brain tumor as possible and replace it with medicinal wafers intended to fight the existing cancer. My mind began playing the what-if game. What if the doctor implanted something else, something that could monitor or even control my dad’s life? The story’s premise grew from there.
Q: What are you reading at the moment, and who are a few of your favorite authors and why?
A: I’m currently enjoying Mind Games by Nancy Mehl. I especially enjoy a good thriller, whether Christian or secular. Some of my favorite authors are Steven James, Terri Blackstock, Frank Peretti, Ted Dekker, and Brandilyn Collins. I like how they weave story threads together and craft their scenes in ways that keeps the plot moving forward. Their books are great examples of what works in suspense writing. I learn so much simply by reading their novels.
Q: Do you have any new writing projects on the horizon?
A: I’m almost finished with the first draft of the sequel to Kill Order and hope to have something ready for my agent sometime this fall.
