Best Tim Kizer Books
The Vanished: David Miller loves his daughter, Annie Miller. He would do anything to keep herself, or at least this is what he once believed. David’s mettle is tested when Annie disappears. It all starts on a random. David is in his car with Annie. Once they park, she gets out while David plays with his phone.
The device doesn’t keep him distracted for long. However, by the time he looks up, Annie is gone. Like any other father, David is frantic. After searching high and low, he calls the police. They don’t know what to make of the case.
On the one hand, Annie’s situation seems relatively standard. She is hardly the first child to go missing. On the other hand, David has shown so much concern for Annie’s life that it is difficult to believe that he had something to do with the girl’s disappearance.
And yet he failed the lie detector test. Lie detector tests are inadmissible in court, so they don’t really mean anything, not where David is concerned. But the situation has only grown more confusing. David went ahead and submitted himself to a hypnosis session. The results were horrific.
Not only was he responsible for Annie’s disappearance but he confessed to killing her. But again, the law doesn’t accept hypnosis as a viable means of solving murders. And the police could hardly arrest David on the basis of a confession made while under hypnosis.
But his testimony bore tangible proof when he revealed the location of the knife he used to end his daughter’s life. Even more damning was the evidence discovered at the scene, which included Annie’s blood and David’s fingerprints.
David doesn’t know what to make of his circumstances. He doesn’t remember committing the crime. But he cannot explain why he knows what he knows or how his fingerprints ended up on the knife.
Before he can make sense of the situation, Ben, a mysterious figure, enters the picture, adding an entirely new layer of complexity. Even though David has confessed to the murder of Annie Miller, Ben claims to have the girl in his custody.
Not only is she alive but Ben is willing to release her. However, David must first pay a terrible price. Ben needs a favor. If David complies with the request, he will go to prison forever.
Published in 2015, ‘The Vanished’ is the 6th book in Tim Kizer’s bibliography. The novel has a fairly simplistic writing style, the kind that is unlikely to challenge Kizer’s audience. On the surface, ‘The Vanished’ sounds just like every other novel about missing children.
But it doesn’t take long for the plot to take several unexpected twists and turns that ultimately differentiate it from some of its rivals in the genre. Tim Kizer has drawn quite a bit of attention for his approach to writing.
Some readers have compared his style to a television script because it is filled with short paragraphs. The book is driven primarily by the plot, which is why the characters receive little in the way of extensive development.
An Evil Mind: Someone murdered Helen Hinton. Edward Philips was identified as the killer. But he never stopped protesting his innocence. No one would listen. Having concluded that he had taken the life of the 15-year-old, they sentenced him to death.
It wasn’t difficult to understand the skepticism that Edward’s pleas attracted. Helen’s blood was found on his clothes. Even worse, his fingerprints were found on the murder weapon. Edward was certain that he would die for a crime he did not commit.
But then Mark Hinton, Helen’s father, came to see him. He was starting to question Edward’s conviction. His doubts had been raised by another killing. Someone had murdered Laura Sumner, an 18-year-old girl using the same methodology as Helen Hinton.
Mark had no choice but to conclude that her daughter’s killer was still free. And he had no way of catching the monster, not without Edward’s help.
