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

Was surprised it ended so soon. I was just beginning to start getting interested in how these two killers would outwit each other on a long trip and zing it's over.Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer ladypig
This book is alright for anyone that likes suspense. The plot was too predictable and the story too short for me to get really involved in it.Published 2 months ago by Laura Dame
What a load of crap. Words are not available to describe the rubbish quality of this tripePublished 12 months ago by Bill McCall
Was just the same as many other stories, just names changed and very minor differences. No really detail images to hold your interest.Published 18 months ago by Mary MacKay
This book was, in my opinion, poorly written. There are several stories in this book - all equally unbelievable. Read morePublished 19 months ago by GMac
The stories were all right but they were too predictable. Especially the first one with hitchhiker. Still not bad for what it is.Published 21 months ago by spideyfan1972
