Waiting on Wednesday: The Murder Complex
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that showcases what books we're not so patiently waiting for.
This week's pre-publication pick is:
The Murder Complex
By Lindsay Cummings
Hardcover, 400 pages
Expected Publication: June 10, 2014
An action-packed, blood-soaked, futuristic debut thriller set in a world where the murder rate is higher than the birthrate. For fans of Moira Young's Dust Lands series, La Femme Nikita, and the movie Hanna.
Meadow Woodson, a fifteen-year-old girl who has been trained by her father to fight, to kill, and to survive in any situation, lives with her family on a houseboat in Florida. The state is controlled by The Murder Complex, an organization that tracks the population with precision. The plot starts to thicken when Meadow meets Zephyr James, who is-although he doesn't know it-one of the MC's programmed assassins. Is their meeting a coincidence? Destiny? Or part of a terrifying strategy? And will Zephyr keep Meadow from discovering the haunting truth about her family? Action-packed, blood-soaked, and chilling, this is a dark and compelling debut novel by Lindsay Cummings.
The description for this book is vague, but certain parts about it appeal to me. Assassins in a futuristic world who control the population at their will sounds like a great concept for a book. Certainly can't wait to get my hands on this one!
