Waiting On Wednesday: The Murder Complex (Lindsay Cummings)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Murder Complex (The Murder Complex, #1)
Title: The Murder Complex
Author: Lindsay Cummings
Release Date: June 10, 2014
Publisher: Greenwillow Books (Harper)
Summary (from Goodreads):

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?

Why I'm Looking Forward To ItMy addiction to dystopians has yet to wane, and this chilling thriller looks to be another awesome addition to the genre! Also, killer teens is my thing. ;)

So what book are you waiting on?


  1. Ah. I'm stuck. I LOVED Hanna but I found Nikita cheesy and predictable, plus I just don't 'get' this idea. But I am very intrigued about this Murder Complex. And to find out why this bizarre city has so many murderers.
    Thanks for sharing!
