Publisher's Summary

Live fast, die young, leave a good-looking corpse.
Such is the credo of the modern mercenary in the economic downturn of the late 2040s. Three such antiheroes are brought together by a billionaire for a unique search-and-retrieval mission. If they succeed, they'll walk away free and clear with a big fat payday. But if they fail... Well, things will go badly for them. Their quest will take them to the far corners of the Earth, from central Australia to Brazil to the Eastern European micronation of Borlovia, all in search of one of the world's rarest treasures: the elusive and collectible TIS bottle. Three bottles, three chances to succeed...or fail. What could possibly go wrong?

Review

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I thought the narration was amazing but the story was lacking depth. Overall it was a good listen.

Enjoyable listen, great cyberpunk heist story

I loved the story and the cyberpunk world was just what I was looking for. I'm a sucker for a good heist story and the cyberpunk twist reminded me of other Sci-Fi I have enjoyed (Shadowrun, Bladerunner, Ghost in the Shell off the top of my head).

Personal preference warning: content-wise, I was okay with the language and violence. It felt like it fit my interpretation of the characters and the world. The sexual content was fine for the most part but a lot of it felt a bit on the vulgar / "in your face" side which, in my opinion, distracted from an otherwise great story. I would have preferred those scenes to be either implied or much more subtle in delivery. If you are willing to overlook this (or make use of the skip forward button) then I think you will enjoy this story.

A couple things detracted from the overall experience. Some scenes were described in a way that felt a bit repetitious (e.g. descriptions of some of the action sequences). The above mentioned handling of sex scenes also were distracting. It's hard to say whether it came down to the writing or the narration of said scenes...

With that said, I DID enjoy the story overall and the narration was acceptable with some minor delivery gripes. Despite my criticisms I would definitely consider listening to more novels by Ian Thomas Healy and narration from Nicholas Patrella.
