Review - Intoxication by Tim Kizer

Title and Author: Intoxication by Tim Kizer
Publication Date:March 30th, 2011
Paperback/Hardcover: 31
Genre: Mystery

For the fans of Stephen King and Dean Koontz...
How do you force a confession out of a coworker trying to poison you? Do you kill those who dismiss your fears and believe you are paranoid? What do you do if you start questioning your own suspicions--and sanity--as you take the law into your hands?
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.

Bonus: "Hitchhiker" by Tim Kizer, the first entry in the As the Darkness Falls series.
From description:
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

I received Intoxication from Kim Kizer in exchange of an honest review.
Intoxication is a short novella that explores the psychological stability of Leslie who is sure one of her co-workers is trying to poison her coffee and that her boyfriend has drank that same coffee and ended up with indigestion. Leslie then decides she needs to find out who wants to kill her and why.
I really liked the novella and thought it accomplished its goal as a suspense thriller. It’s not easy to guess who the poisoner is and what the reason is for poisoning Leslie.
Leslie is a very good main character and you can almost feel her starting to go mad as she becomes less and less rational.
There’s a lot of plot in Intoxication considering it is a short story, which I really appreciate.
Hitchhiker was an interesting story as well. The plot was good and so was the mystery, suspense and horror in it.
Intoxication is a very unique story and fast that was able to keep me entertained and surprised.
If you like mystery and thriller I think you’ll definitely be able to enjoy this book.

Rating: Worth Your Time (4 Stars)
