Intoxication by Tim Kizer

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.  (Taken from Goodreads)

There are three books in Intoxication by Tim Kizer: Intoxication, The Hitchhiker, and the Bike. I only read Intoxication. It was a pretty creepy book and I didn't enjoy it very much.

Leslie is overly paranoid and it was scary to read about how she thinks. It was also scary that she owned a hand gun! This novella was short and to the point. I felt like there wasn't very much of a build up to anything, the novella started out with the action. But, there was only action in the very beginning, and the end. The middle was boring to me.

The sentences seemed choppy and they didn't seem to flow. I couldn't connect with any of the characters because there were no personality traits besides paranoia. This was not a good book for me and I can't recommend it to anyone else.

Overall Rating: 1 Star
