Overview

Rockstar Ending is the first book in a terrifyingly plausible dystopian series steeped in the social and political issues that dominate the 2020s. It includes a short introduction from George Orwell's son, Richard Blair, who describes N. A. Rossi's work as 'highly original, macabre, and very funny'.

London. 2027. An ordinary woman discovers she is capable of extraordinary things. When Lexi finds out that older people are being coerced into genocide by stealth, she takes on the sinister corporation behind the Rockstar Ending.

It's hard to resist their invitation to a pain-free suicide with a glamorous spin, a seductive soundtrack, and a killer inheritance tax exemption. After her best friend's mother books a one-way ticket, Lexi sets out on a rescue mission that takes her deep into the terrifying heart of the death factory.

In a turbulent political landscape, the Yuthentic movement has driven a rift between generations, promoting the redistribution of wealth to younger people by all possible means. Technology is weaponised to manipulate the victims in secret as social media, artificial intelligence and all manner of robots are deployed to undermine humanity.

But the underground resistance is growing. How can an unconventional band of unlikely heroes stop the killing – before it's all too late?

If you like Black Mirror, The Handmaid's Tale or Nineteen Eighty-Four, you'll love Rockstar Ending.

Her debut novel, Rockstar Ending, started life as a short story, ‘One Last Gift’, which won a dystopian fiction award from the Orwell Society. The judges described it as ‘highly original, macabre and very funny’. It was published in the Journal of Orwell Studies.

Nicola is a regular blogger on technology, society and the arts. She has lectured in universities on leadership, PR, ethics and corporate social responsibility and consults on communications management. She has appeared on BBC Radio 4 Today , BBC local radio, and written for wide range of media outlets including The Independent, Time Out, Louder Than War and Influence.
