Author - Lindsay Cummings
Genre - YA Futuristic Thriller
Release Date - June 10th 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?
The Insider's Scoop
1) The Murder Complex was always the original title! I was so happy that it never changed.
2) Meadow Woodson is me…Zephyr James is my husband. (Except I don't murder people, and my husband doesn't do that MAJOR thing that Zephyr does to change his and Meadow's life.) We have all the same character traits, personality ticks, and looks.
3) Originally, The Murder Complex was only 50,000 words long! When it sold, I added about that much to it!
4) It took me 2 weeks to write the first draft of TMC….and then 2 years to edit it.
5) While I was writing TMC, I carried a knife around with me, so I would know how Meadow always felt carrying her weapon.
6) THE FEAR TRIALS is a Murder Complex prequel novella, from Meadow's point of view. It's coming out a month before book 1 :) So you guys will get a taste of the world ahead of time. That book is all about Meadow's training!
