Elora Cook (eloracook on QT) has signed with agent Sabrina Taitz of William Morris Endeavor.
Wearing the latest Prada with a gun strapped to her waist, seventeen-year-old Tasha Nicastro has her eyes set on inheriting her father's title as New York's most powerful mafia boss. And when rumors of a takeover by a new gang called the Salvators puts her family in danger, Tasha's willing to pull the trigger to keep them safe.
Eighteen-year-old Leo Danesi doesn't care about anything that isn't related to burning through his family's wealth in glitzy clubs and cruising the city in his Ferrari. The only person who ever gets under his skin is Tasha, his rival, and the one person with more influence and connections in the mafia than him. When Leo's little sister is threatened by the Salvators, however, he buries his pride and asks Tasha to help him hunt down the mysterious group.
Tasha and Leo have always despised each other, but this new threat is bigger than their long-standing hatred, and they need to work together to stop the shared threat. But, as their investigation begins, Tasha witnesses her family murdered, and all the evidence points to the Salvators.
Fueled by Tasha's thirst for revenge and Leo's fear for his own family, they set out to find why the Salvators murdered Tasha's family—and what they're planning next. As the bitter rivals hunt through the glittering streets and dark alleys of New York—fighting the taboo attraction that keeps growing between them—it becomes clear the extent of the mystery gang's power runs deeper than Tasha or Leo anticipate. Anyone might be the enemy, and if the two don't stop the Salvators before they take control, they'll soon become prisoners to a world they once ruled.
IN THE COMPANY OF KILLERS is a YA thriller complete at 88,000 words. Told from dual perspectives, it will appeal to fans of the glamour and elite in the television show GOSSIP GIRL with the twists of Karen McManus's ONE OF US IS LYING and the brutal mafia world of THE GODFATHER.
