Conspiracy Girl by Sarah Alderson
Genre: YA Thriller
Expected publication: February 19th 2015
Everybody knows about the Cooper Killings.
There was only one survivor – fifteen year-old Nic Preston.
Now eighteen, Nic is trying hard to rebuild her life. But then one night her high-security apartment is broken into. It seems the killers are back to finish the job.
Finn Carter – hacker, rule breaker, player – is the last person Nic ever wants to see again. He's the reason her mother's murderers walked free. But as the people hunting her close in, Nic has to accept that her best chance of staying alive is by staying close to Finn.
And the closer they get to the truth, and to each other, the greater the danger becomes.
Another bullet smacks into the side of the barn just as I throw myself behind it. I do a rough calculation. The shooter is at the north-west edge of the house, on the front veranda. I sprint towards the woodpile and find Nic hunched down behind it. She’s clutching a piece of wood in her hands, holding it like a baseball bat. As soon as she sees me though she drops it.
‘Are you OK?’ I pant.
She’s staring at me in undisguised horror and I realise I must have blood on my face. ‘It’s not mine,’ I tell her even as her hand comes up to touch my face.
‘I’m OK,’ I say, snatching her hand and pulling her to her feet. ‘Come on!’
I push her forwards, towards the tree line in the distance, counting down the distance. Twenty meters before the fence I yell at Nic to keep going and I turn around and drop to my knees behind a decaying old log. Nic stops and turns to look at me over her shoulder. I yell at her to keep running and she staggers forwards, uncertain, before upping her pace and struggling on through the snow.
