Eating in the Underworld

Short Story by J. D. Brink

$1.99 available in bundles


“It takes a bastard to find a bastard. And I’ve found plenty.”

Harry Celeste is a next century private eye with last century style. He’s rough around the edges and makes no apologies for it. You want someone who can track dirt bags, you hire a detective who’s not afraid to get dirty.

And if it’s anything, this case is dirty.

Harry’s been hired by mega-corp Libra Foundations to find a hole that’s leaking money. And to plug it. The trail leads to an old college chum who specializes in future tech and manufactured people.

There’s bad blood between him and Harry. And it’s about to be spilled.

This short story of urban fantasy and sci-fi noir also appears in the dark collection A Long Walk Down a Dark Alley.

“Brink melds hard-boiled mystery, robot sex slaves, and a twist on Greek myth, all which evoke Blade Runner, and leaves you wanting for more.”  — Tales of the Talisman Magazine 


If taking a college fencing class, eating from the trash can, and smelling like an animal were qualifications for becoming a sword-swinging barbarian, J. D. Brink might be Conan’s protégé. But since that career path seemed less than promising, he has instead been a sailor, spy, nurse, and officer in the U.S. Navy, as well as a gravedigger, insurance adjuster, and school teacher in civilian life. Today (spring, 2016) he and his family are stationed in Japan, where he’s providing a bad example for all Americans. In his writing, as in life, Mr. Brink enjoys dabbling in multiple genres.
