A Symphony of Blood - Adam Pepper


At times disturbing and grim, others raunchy and comical, Adam Pepper’s work is known for a unique blend of horror, suspense and speculative fiction.  Learn more about Adam at his website:

Product description:

Hank Mondale, a rough-around-the-edges P.I. with a small drinking problem and a large gambling problem, needs a break. With his landlord threatening eviction and his bookie threatening worse, things look bleak. Until real estate mogul Thomas Blake calls with an incredible story: a monster is trying to kill his daughter. Hank figures she's probably some whacked-out spoiled brat, but desperate, Hank takes the case to track down the supposed monster. It seems that people around Mackenzie Blake are disappearing. It's obviously no coincidence. Was Hank hired to unwittingly aid a wealthy murderess? Or is there really someone...or some thing, trying to kill Mackenzie Blake?

A symphony plays that only It can hear. But there will be a special performance, just for her.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?

My book will appeal to fans of dark fiction for adults.  A fiercely loyal market that is consistently underserved, underappreciated and underestimated by the big guys in New York.

Q: Why did you go indie?

I spent over a decade pursuing the traditional publishing dream.  I wrote five novels, had two agents and accumulated hundreds of rejections but was unsuccessful.  I published in the small press and enjoyed it immensely, but I don’t think I’ll ever “break out” that way.  In the current marketplace, with hungry readers clamoring for inexpensive options, I see a great opportunity to connect with an audience that appreciates my work.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre

Clive Barker, Hubert Selby, Jr., Kurt Vonnegut, Chuck Pallaniuk and Cormac McCarthy.
