The Murder Complex
by Lindsay Cummings

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.
I've known about Lindsay Cummings for a while. I think I've followed her on twitter for a good ten months or so now ... maybe even a year ... and I knew she had a book coming out. However, I didn't read the synopsis until recently. I don't know about you guys, but I think this sounds pretty good, and I'm excited to give it a go.
Don't know if I'll be going for this one in hardback – I'll probably wait for the paperback to be released – but I will definitely be getting this on my shelves at some point in the future. Looks great!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

This is also on my list, but it's not yet available in my local bookstore. The Murder Complex is the current rave of book bloggers and booktubers, so I'm really looking forward to reading this soon. :)
