Product Description

(This edition contains novelettes Hitchhiker, Sixtus, and Intoxication)

For the fans of Stephen King and Dean Koontz...

Three dark tales taking you on a journey into insanity.


When a serial killer hitches a ride one sunny day in a beautiful California valley, he does not suspect that he may have met his match, who is dead set to take another life. The battle of wits begins and only the most devious mind will survive.


After becoming friends with a mysterious entity named Jeremy, Zack, a skinny fifteen-year-old nerd suffering from polydactyly, acquires a taste for killing.

First, he butchers his parents in their sleep. Then he cold-bloodedly rips out his schoolmate’s intestines. A few days later, Zack strangles a young woman before stealing her car. And that was just a beginning.

Who--or what--is Jeremy? And what are the reasons behind this killing spree? If you think you know the answers, chances are you are wrong.


Leslie has a suspicion: someone at work is trying to poison her. Can she prove it? No, and she doesn't care that she can't as she takes the law into her hands. How about those who dismiss her fears and believe she is paranoid? Well, they certainly deserve to be punished. What does she do when she starts questioning her own suspicions--and sanity? Hmm. That's complicated.

In this disturbing tale of derangement, a young psychopathic woman is slipping into madness as she fights an enemy that may exist only in her imagination. She has to resort to desperate measures when she realizes that a gun, security cameras in her apartment, and constant vigilance will not be enough to survive. It is hard to find a black cat in a dark room, especially if the cat is not there, but Leslie, with her resolve fueled by paranoia, is hell-bent on finding and crushing it.

Plus a preview of Tim Kizer's new horror novel "Days of Vengeance."

HASH(0x9ef4f210) out of 5 stars A Unique, and Compelling read!!! May 17 2012
By Cozmic Book Junkie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Hitchhiker is a suspenseful, compelling read that really keeps the reader grasped on every word. It's simply written, but very fast-paced. I felt myself unable to put it down as I got further into the story. The plot itself had me hooked, like a serial killer against another serial killer? The concept is just really entertaining, and I couldn't wait to read more.I really enjoyed this quick, but satisfying story, but the only thing I disliked was that I wish it was longer because I really enjoyed it, and I wished there was a sequel.

The bonus story was awesome as well, and I look forward to reading more from this author.

HASH(0x9ef4f264) out of 5 stars A new author has a hit! May 14 2011
By Candy Franklin - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I was looking for a horror book by an author that I haven't read before. Tim Kizer is a new name and "Hitchhiker" must be his first offering on Amazon kindle. I am glad I bought this book.

I thought "Hitchhiker" was disturbing and very entertaining. It was a fast paced, gripping, easy read. Even though I am usually able to predict twists in horror/suspense books, "Hitchhiker" caught me off guard. The author knows how to pull the rug from under his readers' feet. I especially liked the trick with state quarters that Tim Kizer used to reveal who the second serial killer was.

My only complaint is that there is no sequel yet, which would tell us what happens to these serial killers afterwards. The book has three serial killers: a loner and a team of two twisted psychos, who battle each other. There is a lot that can happen between them after the events depicted in this book! I'm hoping the author will write a sequel. I'm a fan!

Also, there is a very interesting bonus story "Intoxication", which is more subtle, but riveting nonetheless.

I can't wait to read new books by this author, which will hopefully include a sequel to "Hitchhiker."

HASH(0x9ef4f69c) out of 5 stars Hard to put down May 15 2011
By Jennifer Hampton - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
"Hitchhiker" is very suspenseful and doesn't rely on the body count to scare the reader. The writing is breezy and engaging. It hooks you from the start and doesn't let go. The book is worth every second you will spend reading it. I liked the way the author revealed the identity of the second killer. It was a nice twist, I must admit. And the way the killers figured out each other was quite inventive.

At first glance, "Hitchhiker" may seem similar to Jack Kilborn and Blake Crouch's "Serial," since it tells about two serial killers who meet on the road. However, there are a few major differences in the plot and presentation of characters that make "Hitchhiker" a very enjoyable book even if you read "Serial." If you liked "Serial", you will like "Hitchhiker." And if you DIDN'T like "Serial", you WILL like "Hitchhiker!"

The bonus material is also very entertaining and intense.

HASH(0x9ef4fa68) out of 5 stars Not Sure What Others Saw In This Book Sept. 29 2011

I'm baffled by the reviews for this. It's two very short stories at best. And they're not very good, in my opinion. Complete waste of money and time. Glad it only cost 99cents. Not very suspenseful. Not very thrilling. Just...horrible.

HASH(0x9ef4fa14) out of 5 stars For suspense thriller / horror fans Oct. 21 2012
By Oleg Medvedkov - Published on

This is a book that contains two short horror stories and several sample chapters from a horror novel. I am only mentioning this because it's not really clear from the preview of the book.

A hitchhiking killer flags a car and catches a ride with, well, another killer. No really a spoiler anymore - I saw something about it in the reviews so, I suspected this would happen. Still, the original twist aside, this is just like Tarantino's earlier works - it's not really about the premise, it's about the tension as the story unfolds. Multiple points of view, switching timelines, pretty much everything is there.

The second story is more subtle and that's, perhaps, why not so many reviewers talk about it. However, I found it more involving than the first one. Leslie's character is better developed than the characters in the "Hitchhiker" and her doubts about her sanity keep propping the story forward. An attentive reader will notice the influence of the genre classics in this story as well; however, it doesn't really make it predictable.

The book would benefit from a real table of contents and a more detailed upfront explanation of what's included. However, that's an easy thing to fix.

Both stories make for a good reading. Even though they are somewhat mismatched in their premise, the execution with multiple twists and revelations does demonstrate this promising author's style rather effectively. Good read for suspense thriller / horror fans.
