Kurzbeschreibung

"

In the small city of Rockton, Illinois, someone is tired of waiting. He’s tired of standing in line at the grocery store and tired of waiting at the drive-through line. Now he’s doing something about it.


The first murder rocks the city. The entire Bjornson family—except the father, Stephen—has been brutally murdered, and the killer has left a message behind, written in the victim’s blood: Don’t Waste People’s Time. It’s a grizzly start for two young detectives who’ve just become partners. But Max Larkin and Jesse Fairlane put their personal distaste for each other aside and start concentrating on how to find the killer from striking again.


As they investigate the scene of the crime and interview Stephen at the hospital, the clues slowly begin to add up. Could this be a deranged killer who struck ten years ago and has now returned to the area? Before they can answer that question, another murder is reported, and Max and Jesse suddenly realize they have a serial killer on the loose.


But as they get closer to the truth, a past memory begins to haunt Max, one that might lead to a break in the case—or the end of his career.

Format: Kindle Edition
"Time Killer" by Todd M. Thiede is a terrific crime thriller concerning a serial killer that targets people who in his own words "have wasted his time".
The opening sequence is well done as the newest victim, a policeman himself, wakes up tied up and muted to witness the brutal murder of his family. The premise of "who would do that because of time" is a fascinating one and one that did engage me from the beginning.
The theme of "time is money" is prevailing in our modern way of life and in this regard the book is a moral tale on our times, the lack of consideration for others that can be a by-product of the pressures of modern life.

Now to the other side: Investigating Detective Max Larkin, top of the class and a somewhat loner in the police force, is being teamed up with beautiful and clever Jesse, a match not made in heaven. Rest assured however that this is not your usual taming of the shrew chemistry, both characters have more strings to their character than meets the eye at first and their developing relationship is one of the many strong points of the book.
As the killer continues to punish and kill we, the readers, finally get to meet the person behind the killing, which is perfectly timed to change the dynamics of the writing and make for a continued interest in the story.
Thiede does a great job at juggling the issues in the lives of the investigators and the investigation itself. Paced perfectly and edited sharply this book never runs out of steam until the big finale.

Max Larkin, a Rockton Police Department detective, is faced with a challenge of his life in this thriller. He's in hot pursuit of a serial killer who is devastating Max's hometown, and time is running out.

The first character introduced in "Time Killer" is Stephen Bjornson, and the setting is what should be the safe haven of the home that Stephen created with his wife Gwen and their children. But on that dramatic night, his home is far from safe. Stephen wakes up to find himself taken hostage by a man in a dark ski mask. He and his wife are prisoners in their own home.

While Stephen's fate is terrifying, he is not the only victim of the deranged killer. And no place is immune from his vicious attacks, not even the city hospital. Detective Max Larkin has never worked as hard or as feverishly to catch a criminal, and it's up to him to return peace and quiet to Rockton.

This novel is gripping, frightening, and intense. The fast pace of the story is intensified by the author's use of the present tense that keeps the events immediate, as if they are unfolding in real time. Chapters of this novel measure time in hours because every hour can mean a difference between life and a new death.

well, sometimes one finds a jewel among the the low cost books for kindle. This one, to me, definitively wasn't. the language was not only simple, but annoying, the present-time of the storytelling very unnerving.
The dialogues are mostly very obvious and do not sound natural. The storyline was promising, but it is so improbable, that with all those killings there never is a mistake or a forensic trace... how comes that the perpetrator is at the same time seemingly totally nuts and highly organized? The detectives are not really coming to life.... I am not even sure why I finished reading it, it was kind of forseeable in the end...
sorry to say so, but a real thriller thrills much more... two stars for the idea.

All in all, I liked the book, it was a nice "time killer":P
The plot was interesting and the ideas well made.
But there are some reasons to give only 3 stars:
The first star goes away because of the VERY simple language, its straigt and one-sided. So if you like nice and big descriptions you are definitley not getting them in this story.
The second is lost due to the "pressing" in the end: First of all, the spark of "romace" (jessy and a vitness) that seemed forced ...for the sake of just HAVING some romance in it it seemed. And second the secret of Max' past. For me, that was very plump and was there just to have a twist of turns and a better way to solve the case.
Therefore, only 3 deserved stars :)

As soon as you begin the opening page of this novel it grips you and hangs on tightly until the very last page.
I don't usually read detective novels involving serial killers but this book has seriously made me reconsider my reading material.
The evil mind of the killer Mike/Tom is realistic and filled with malevolent thoughts which draw the reader into his creepy world.
The detectives investigating the murders are believable and engaging as we watch them piece the mystery together.
The pace of the novel matches the desperation of the police as they close in on their killer, trying to prevent him striking again.
The details of his crimes made me squirm but were totally necessary for the realism of this tale.
You seriously won't regret purchasing this book; a great find.
