[The following is a guest post from Todd Thiede, author of the new triller, Time Killer. Check out all the other stops on the blog tour at the Time Killer tour page. For giveaway details, see below.]
Time Killer is a unique mystery/thriller. It is unique in the way that nobody has ever written about a serial killer that kills people for wasting time. Sure there are books about many serial killers killing for different reasons. For instance a voice or voices told them to kill, their dog told them to, or even their god told them too. But I was never able to find a story like Time Killer in any movies or books.
The time killer in this book is so self absorbed that he kills people for taking his time away from him. In the first chapter I let him describe how his life is affected by people that waste his time.
“Stephen, I know you and your type. You don’t have a care in the world outside of you and your family’s own little bubble. You don’t think that your actions have any effect on other people’s lives. You see, Stephen,” he intones, “I once had a nice wife and a daughter just like you. We were happy, just like you; we had the perfect life, just like you. But you see, things are not always as they appear. Are they, Stephen?”
The story in itself can be taken as a life lesson. You should be more considerate of the people around you. Their time is just as valuable as yours. You never know what other person is dealing with and sometimes it might just be better to let them cut in front of you at the grocery store. Maybe instead of wondering why that person sped past you on the highway and you decided to flip him off instead of letting him in you should just sit back and relax and enjoy life as it is. Your life might be hectic, you might have a lot on your mind, but so could the person next to you. They may have it even worse than you do. I truly believe if you respect those around you it will come back to you many times over.
Time Killer, does take his feelings too far. That is the point. He has lost his mind because he blames his life on others. He thinks that he should be compensated for what he has lost. He blames all of the time wasters in the world for all of his problems.
If you want to read a truly gripping mystery/thriller that is nothing like you have ever read before. Then you should give Time Killer a chance. Check it out on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or where ever books are sold.
