Editorial Reviews


"The narrative is punchy, modern and has a staccato feel that allows the pace to remain quite intense from first page to last but, at the same time, has an almost old fashioned, elegant, and poetic structure that I don't normally come across in modern science fiction." - Steve Taylor-Bryant (

"Picture a dark and stormy night; add the man in the shadows, the click of feet on pavement, and a trench coat...this is the feeling of Time Heist. Now stir in high tech science fiction, fast-forward to a bleak future where no one remains unaltered and entering the Stream of public consciousness can empower one with endless knowledge and strength. Kick in some grit, dark humor and a snarky hero who's far from perfect, out of the loop, and absolutely obsessed with one last mission. Now you're in Anthony Vicino's world of Time Heist."
Dii - Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

"A bit of 'In Time', 'Blade Runner', 'Bogart' and a lot of ridiculously cool tech, but Vicino is so good at describing it all, at bringing it all together, that the story is not only clever and compelling, it is very unique, even with all of these aspects."
Jason Pennock

"A fast, exciting and complex read that will leave you wanting more!"
Robin Panzer

"The characters are real--strong and flawed and fragile--the tech talk is fluid and savvy, and political intrigue develops with satisfying layers of complexity. It's riveting to the very end, and the noir-ish tone is spot on. 5 stars!"
Kris Stevens

"If you're looking for rousing action, Time Heist is the book for you. The hero gets shot, beaten, bones broken, drowned and that's just in the first 10 chapters."
Richard Howington

"The characters were real to me. Deeply flawed but struggling to do the right thing... lots of little philosophical gold nuggets in there."
Cory K.

One Lazy Robot presents Time Heist, book one in the Firstborn Saga, and the thrilling debut novel from Anthony Vicino. A fast paced, adrenaline laced, action-adventure that catapults the reader through a vividly imagined world of intrigue and technological wonder. 

Former Time Vice Detective, Tom Mandel, has less than a day remaining on his Life Tracker. The thought of dying isn't so bad, until he discovers the man who murdered his wife, Malcolm Wolfe, has escaped prison.

Now, Tom's got twenty hours to find the man who stole  his everything. Along the way, he'll uncover a secret so powerful that, if he's not careful, could mean the end of Unity.
