Summary

From the author of the “Magic 2.0” series comes an outer space caper where it’s the thief who’s having something stolen from her - her life.

It is the distant future, and Baird is a loner, a part time spy, and a notorious alleged thief. “Notorious” for the audacity of her crimes; “alleged” because nobody has ever been able to legally prove she committed any of them.

When the hush-hush agency known as the Toolbox recruits Baird, being a clandestine operative seems like a great way to get paid to do what she already does anyway. That is, until a mission goes wrong, and Baird is infected with a deadly virus. With only seven days to live, Baird has to complete a series of daring missions, each one designed to bring her closer to a cure.

Allegedly.

Baird suspects the Toolbox might not be telling her the whole truth. She's not sure what to believe or who to trust.

And the clock is ticking.

Like the story but not the narrator

This is a fun space crime adventure story with many laughs but the narrator is far too dry to really convey their authors work in my opinion

No wonder it's free

Pedestrian story, bland writing and a robotic narrator who is only one step above a text to speech app.

Ready Steady Steal

This was pretty good in that it solidly kept pace. Things kept happening from one heist to the next. The ending was tidy enough, for a story about devious people. All of them. The main character was shady, not only in her thievery ways, but also in how her real brother felt she treated him. Everyone's entitled to their own point of view. I'd recommend this book only if you've nothing better to read. I grabbed it on Audible because it's written by Scott Meyer and I love his Magic 2.0 series best. I like all of his other books too and I'll always listen to anything and everything he writes. I'd even be down with listening to a sequel of this audiobook. The sneaky thieving the main character does is quite clever. I liked all the ins and outs that I wasn't expecting. And futuristic space fiction is always fun too. Especially as this story isn't set too far in the future.

preferred Magic 2.0

the story was okay. I found it hard to keep my attention in some places. Magic 2.0 was my benchmark though. if you haven't read that then you should!

no bad language?

I found it odd that their was no bad language it had me wondering if the story was written like that or audiable changed it!
I liked the mc but the premis seamed to be a way to truncate the story . sadly the ending became predictable . I'd still read or listen to a sequel

Story flows nicely, narrator doesn't fit at all

The story is quite nice but the narrator sooooo doesn't fit to it. I have some 200+ audiobooks in my library and this is the first time I was really bothered by the choice of the narrator. It should have been someone funny, young and cool sounding like the main character.

Bring back editors

This story could have, literally, been told in less than half the word count. I actually skipped twenty chapters & the story still made sense. Sloppy writing. Too much ‘telling’ not enough ‘showing’. Deeply disappointing & predictable ending.

Enjoyable read

I really enjoyed this book. It seem like it was going in one way and then went in a different direction which ended up being very satisfying.
