Excellent Book! Highly Recommended! Can’t Wait for the Sequel!
Set several hundred years in the future, mankind had a war and tried to annihilate themselves and failed. Out of this war comes a one world government known as Unity. It has been determined that the world can only safely sustain a human population of 7 billion without depleting all resources and destroying every living thing on the planet. To that end, each person is given a maximum lifespan of 70 years. When that time expires you simply die. At birth each person receives a counter on their arm that shows how much time they have left, assuming that they are not killed by some accident, murder or drug abuse (which makes their time go faster hence shortening the lifespan).
Tom has only a few hours left on his time clock which he plans to use sulking and drinking at the Peregrine, a bar in the Lowers where he has been living since retiring as a time cop several years before. However, when his old nemesis, Malcolm Wolfe, escapes from prison where he has been sentenced to life without parole for killing one million Intuits (Humans who can manipulate the time stream) he is thrust into one more mission to try and recapture him before he kills again.
Anthony Vicino has a potential bestseller on his hands with Time Heist, and Adam Lerner does a masterful job at narrating this Sci-Fi Suspense Drama. I highly recommend both the book and the audio book for fans of urban sci-fi and cyberpunk.
I received this audio book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
