Stop Wasting My Time! Serial Killer Exacts Revenge On Dawdlers In Debut Crime Thriller, Time Killer
ELGIN, Ill. June 10, 2013 - The debut release of Time Killer sucks us into the beautifully tangled logic of an ordinary man turned killer. The gruesome message “Don’t Waste People’s Time”, written in his victim’s blood, taunts veteran Detective Max Larkin and his young partner, Jesse Fairlane, to stop him before the clock runs out for the town of Rockton, Illinois.
As they investigate the scene of the crime, the clues slowly begin to add up. Could this be the same deranged killer who struck ten years ago? Before they can answer that question, another murder is reported, and Max and Jesse suddenly realize they have a serial killer on the loose.
A fast-paced procedural thriller, fans of Criminal Minds and CSI will appreciate Time Killer's richly detailed characters and brutal action. It just may be a modern fable for today’s instant gratification driven society.
“Everybody's time is valuable, not just yours,” warns author Todd M. Thiede. “Be kind to those around you.”

Excerpt From Time Killer, p.1
“He tries to stay calm, but his mind and heart are racing. He slowly tries to raise each arm and finds that he is tied down to the bed with duct tape across his chest, torso and legs. With his arms pinned to his sides, all he can do is turn his head far enough to the left to see his wife, Gwen, is still there, but she is also taped to the bed.”
