Author: Laura Morrison
It’s 2054, and there has been a death.
The first death in ten years.
And there will be more before too long, unless Jackie Savage and Jamie Nguyen–two exceptionally under-qualified gals–can complete their dangerous and vague mission.
Too bad they aren’t exactly sure how.
As they blunder through Kyoto, running from evil scientists, hired thugs, rogue AI, and a cyborg raven, they get closer and closer to discovering a plot to take the future out of the hands of humanity. But even if they decipher their place in the puzzle, will they be any match for ruthless scientists and artificial intelligence with agendas of their own?
Short answer: no. But maybe things will end up OK anyway. Right?

“Laura Morrison’s Grimbargo is a madcap noir joyride across a dystopian near-future where death has lost its power in the face of perfect regeneration. Onto the scene two unlikely heroines bumble their way across a world of pseudo-suicide cults, dastardly ravens, inappropriate flirtations, and awkward nicknames in a race against time to investigate the first death in a decade, and perhaps to even save the worldddddd!”

“Grimbargo is a slick sci-fi thriller that will leave the reader on the edge of their seat from start to finish. Morrison has crafted a unique and engaging world where humans are immortal, able to heal from any wound with the help of nanites, but be warned, this is a far cry from the utopia it might sound like. Watching [Jamie and Jackie] stumble from one conspiracy to the next is a delight. Morrison has struck gold with two likable protagonists who drive the plot forward with energy and a healthy dose of snark.”
- Kathy Joy, author of Last One to the Bridge.
“A tightly-plotted combination of dystopian science-fiction and whodunit, with a healthy dash of humor, Grimbargo gives us two well-drawn main characters who find themselves thousands of miles from home and embroiled in some truly bizarre circumstances. Morrison makes it a pleasure to follow these two accidental adventurers as they uncover the outlines of a grave threat to humanity and struggle to understand, then fight it. With plenty of action and plot twists that keep you guessing, Grimbargo delivers!”
