    Fatal Illusions is one of those thick, meaty novels we don t see a lot of any This first book from novelist and editor Adam Blumer was hard to put down The plot lines and characters were well developed and intriguing As a pastor s wife, I found Marc and Gillian very believable, even down to the struggles of pastoring in the Chicago area.What I think I enjoyed the most in the book was the different plot lines that linked together Blumer did a good job of keeping the plot lines fast paced Fatal Illusions is one of those thick, meaty novels we don t see a lot of any This first book from novelist and editor Adam Blumer was hard to put down The plot lines and characters were well developed and intriguing As a pastor s wife, I found Marc and Gillian very believable, even down to the struggles of pastoring in the Chicago area.What I think I enjoyed the most in the book was the different plot lines that linked together Blumer did a good job of keeping the plot lines fast paced and interesting, even before they all merged into the main conflict.Fatal Illusions is a great first offering, and I certainly hope there will be manybooks coming from this new author
