About the Author

Laura Lam was raised near San Francisco, California, by two former Haight-Ashbury hippies. Both of them encouraged her to finger-paint to her heart's desire, colour outside of the lines, and consider the library a second home. This led to an overabundance of daydreams. She relocated to Scotland to be with her husband, whom she met on the internet when he insulted her taste in books. She almost blocked him but is glad she didn't. At times she misses the sunshine.

Reviews

I really enjoyed this visceral, streetwise look into a future of custom physiques and hackable minds. The book's dry, cyberpunk sensibilities are balanced by a rich and flawed anti-hero, and intriguing questions about the blurred lines between code and psyche. -- Adrian Walker, author of End of the World Running Club
I really enjoyed Shattered Minds . . . a noir cyberpunk thriller along the lines of Neuromancer -- Neal Asher
In Shattered Minds Laura Lam combines William Gibson's noirish cyberpunk vibe with Kim Stanley Robinson's social concern and world-building to produce a gripping, fast-paced hi-tech thriller peopled by flawed but believable characters . . . The novel works as a tense techno-thriller, as state-of-the-art extrapolative SF, and as a moving exploration of character in which even the bad guys are portrayed with sympathy * Guardian *
A smart, highly-readable cyberpunk thriller . . . Lam is back in this world with confidence and explores Sudice's evil corporate agenda with great wit and relish . . . Lam creates her own damaged heroine who is tragic while still retaining her own agency . . . this is very hard to put down * SciFiNow *
This is a taut page-turner chock-full of thrills * Speculative Herald *
Terrifyingly believable . . . This techno-thriller is fast-paced, thought-provoking ,and even - unexpectedly - romantic * Kirkus Reviews *
The future landscape is vividly drawn {...} I was drawn into the world thoroughly and swept along at a fast pace. Laura Lam is skilled at giving depth and reality to her future world * Crime Review *
Just fantastic. Rarely have I torn through a book so quickly. Dark, smart, fast-paced and sexy -- Samantha Shannon on False Hearts
That rarest of things - a fast-paced thriller with tons of heart and soul. Set in a chillingly believable future, it's bursting with original concepts and unforgettable characters. I defy anyone to put it down -- Sarah Lotz on False Hearts
An intriguing and fast-paced tale -- Heat on False Hearts
Its vision of the future is seductively terrifying -- SFX on False Hearts
