T least I've done my part Worked Time Vice for the better part of twenty years putting the bad guys into a Stream dream Now I want outThe numbers on my arm tell me I'll be dead soon Less than a day left I can live with that What I can't live with is knowing a Unity Leader helped Malcolm Wolfe the man who murdered my wi. The numbers on my arm said I d be dead soon Time Heist is a scifi thriller set in a future where humanity almost destroyed itself once upon a time so tight population control is now enforced to ensure the planet doesn t run out of resources The form this population control takes is that each person gets 70 years to live at which point a small explosion happens at the base of your skull and you die It is heavily implied but not really shown that there are legal ways to both extend and lessen the amount of time you have left There are certainly illegal methods Because we don t want you to forget your oppression your remaining time left alive is always displayed on your forearm Add in a class system where the lower class literally lives underground and it s all very dystopian Mix a sprawling cyberscape called the Stream into everyone s everyday life and now we re cyberpunk complete with giant evil corporations As a setting it s a good time Our MC is an ex detective who after failing to save his wife and a million other people literally has fled his life and forced himself to live in the Lowers as a form of self flagellation But that was nine years ago and now his arm shows that today is his last Cue end credits Wait no that s not right While he has made peace with his death ie he is drugged out that would be a short and pointless book so his ex partner shows up at his door for the first time ever and informs him that his wife s murderer has escaped super duper prison and they need to track him down and stop whatever his new plot is Also revenge if that is too wholesome This book is a roller coaster of that s a cool idea toI need to know what happens tooh another twist towhere s the closest window to throw this out of and repeatI m not even sure where to start The setting and ideas are the strong points here The UpperMiddleLowers are cliched but the Stream is novel as is having everyone s life expectancy sitting on their arm Thankfully the class issues aren t overly important beyond some ham fisted moral comments very few The Stream on the other hand is all important to the everything Our antagonist is basically a super hacker who can go into the Stream and just murder you by removing your remaining time Which brings up to the first problem Our antagonist is Professor X Not in the good he s fighting for the rights of the downtrodden sort of way But in a he can murder you with a thought from across the planet sort of way In a plot that revolves around our MC trying to save the world before his own life is over having an enemy that can just kill him on any given page without recourse just destroys any tension that existed But he doesn t because reasons and blah blah blahOur next problem is our MC The man literally has less than a day to live in order to get revenge for his dead wife and he has to be told to hurry up and get his head in the game in multiple instances I m sorry what Part of his excuse is that he is a drug addict but that just comes across as a crutch to build tension whenever desired which makes me not care Do you remember The Red Mohawk Same issue there but the guy had a hangover that became a problem when the plot demanded and wasn t when it didn t I guess I m happy that the author at least gave an excuse for why he was smart some time and an idiot others but I d rather he not be stupid or dragging his feet ever Next issue And this one is weird because it s also a plus The twists This story twists like nine different times with a mix of reactions ranging from oh that s cool to oh come on Exacerbating this is that the entire book is so over the top while mostly playing things straight We have an enemy that can kill anyone at anytime The world s most secure prison A conspiracy that goes straight to the President A secret shadow organization A secret resistance A twelve year old girl who is basically straight out of Kick Ass with a bit of the Matrix thrown in A dead wife An ex lover Lost memories A mob boss who controls the undercity The CEO of the most powerful corporation on the planet Oh and some war that wiped out a couple of billion people Inhalers that give you enhanced skills Nanobots And that s not even touching anything to do with the Stream which is as crazy as every other portrayal of cyberspace Even Spinal Tap wouldn t ask you to crank that up another notch What else could you add Space Jesus wellIn the end I found it to be too much One insane thing too many The writing isn t strong enough to carry that level of insane though it certainly isn t bad The pacing is slightly off with the action scenes that go for far too long We have a good deal of secrets for plot which gets on my nerves It s not as egregious here as it could be but there are a couple of instances there the characters know than the reader which isn t a good look Where things aren t explained seemingly to create tension that doesn t need to exist Which some will explain away as there being shell games inside of shell games But the writing I m wrapping sentence structure pacing seuencing plotting all of it into this isn t good enough to overcome the challenges that much complexity brings All that whining aside I did enjoy this for the most part It is fast paced and fun The world is interesting The characters are interesting and that the whole book takes place in a single day means you can get over a lot of them being fairly flat The plot is insane for better and worse It s also a uick read and it s on Kindle Unlimited or only 99 on Kindle The Excalibur Codex (Jamie Saintclaire, the better
