Time Killer by Todd M. Thiede

3 stars
R- 1.5 

copy received for review

Concept/story idea gets 4.5 stars
Character development gets 2.5
overall execution gets 2
editing gets... 1

Use of present tense was jarring and highlighted the weaknesses in the writing. Felt a bit like a rough draft.
Definitely had potential, but wanted a lot more polish.
Interesting story.

This would be a cool episode of Criminal Minds... ;)

Overall, though, not so much.  Three stars feels a bit generous, but it was a good concept.  Characters were sketchy.  Random lesbian scene felt really unnecessary.

Just didn't work for me.
