Everyone loves staying on top of the latest in books & DVDs and we receive them on a regular basis at your library.  Join us as we hit the highlights of the more popular titles being released today.

Home (Myron Bolitar #11)
Author: Harlan Coben
Summary: A decade ago, kidnappers grabbed two boys from wealthy families and demanded ransom, then went silent.  No trace of the boys ever surfaced.  For ten years their families have been left with nothing but painful memories and a quiet desperation for the day that has finally, miraculously arrived: Myron Bolitar and his friend Win believe they have located one of the boys, now a teen.  Where has he been for ten years, and what does he know about the day, more than half a life ago, when he was taken?  And most critically: What can he tell Myron and Win about the fate of his missing friend? 

The Kept Woman (Will Trent #10)
Author: Karin Slaughter
Summary: With the discovery of a murder at an abandoned construction site, Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is brought in on a case that becomes much more dangerous when the dead man is identified as an ex-cop.  Studying [the body, Sara Linton - the GBI's newest medical examiner and Will's lover - realizes that the extensive blood loss didn't belong to the corpse.  Sure enough, bloody footprints leading away from the scene indicate there is another victim - a woman - who has vanished...and who will die soon if she isn't found. 

Author: Robert K. Tanenbaum
Summary: When a former Army veteran suddenly murders a colonel in New York, he claims that he had to do it because he was being used in mind control experiments.  Surprisingly a top Wall Street criminal defense lawyer, one with ties to the White House, decides to defend the killer, arguing that his client suffered from post-traumatic stress from his tours in Afghanistan and that it's his patriotic duty to assist him.  As New York DA Roger Karp prepares a murder case against the veteran, he meets with investigative reporter Ariadne Stupenagel, who suspects that one of her sources for a story on high-level government corruption was a victim in the shooting.  This points not to a random act of violence, but a hired killing that goes to the top levels of our nation.
