Publisher's Description

After adopting their son, Marc and Gillian Thayer intend on enjoying a relaxing weekend away at a picturesque resort in northern Michigan. That is, until their friend turns up dead and the resort becomes a grisly murder scene.

A killer, seeking revenge, begins reenacting the ten plagues of Egypt on the resort and everyone in it, including a Bible translation team already drawing angry protests for proposing to merge the Bible with corresponding passages from the Qur'an. Water turns to blood. Gnats attack the innocent. As plague after plague appears, the Thayers must make sense of how their story intersects with those of the others at the resort--and of their own dark pasts.

In this "chilling tale that keeps readers turning pages and pondering its truths" (C. J. Darlington), the Thayers must unravel the truth. But will they uncover the killer's bitter agenda before the tenth plague--the death of the firstborn son?

    Adam Blumer in his new book, The 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 Thayers 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.

    After completing adoption papers and legal matters, Marc and Gillian decide to take up a friends invitation to a free weekend at a resort. However, as Marc and Gillian pull into the resort parking lot it looks like a circus with cameras, TV news and a man using a bullhorn to speak to the crowd. A group of translators are also at the lodge working on a new translation of the Bible that might be the cause of chaos, but why would that cause such uproar?

    Along with that action, a person or persons seems bent on tormenting the resort guests with recreating the ten plagues of Egypt from the Old Testament. At least that is what is thought until a couple of people show up dead and the mystery thickens!

    The author uses fictional places and events, weaving into the story some of Americas history. Plus Marc is a pastor who longs to reunite with his father, but is shut out for reasons you will discover as you read the story. I thought the suspense would not let up and it didnt! It seemed as though the writer kept increasing the climax and tension while occasionally adding a twist of the plot to keep me glued to the book for hours!

    This is a great thriller that readers can sink their teeth into and not be disappointed! The ending was packed with a very meaningful and truthful message about God, forgiveness and new beginnings. I hope you will take time to read the book and perhaps share it with family, friends and even get your local library to get a copy so many more can enjoy this rich tale!
