After reading the first few pages of “Time Killer,” it was difficult to keep reading. The dialogue seems unnatural and the writing comes across as forced. I liked the concept of a serial killer getting even with people for wasting his time, so I stayed with it, and I’m glad I did.
There are scenes where the author’s talent really shows through. For instance, the brief encounter between the two women, Jesse and Melissa, is very well written. I was hoping to see them get together again.
I think a quick run through with a good copy editor would have helped this book immensely. There were a lot of places where commas were needed and the lack of contractions isn’t realistic.
I will take the time to read the author’s next book though, I think it will be fun to watch his growth.
