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 some of the popular titles being released today.

Masterminds
Starring: Zach Galifianakis
Summary: A dim-witted armored-car driver is lured into taking part in a massive heist by a seductive co-worker and her criminal accomplice.  But when his partners steal the money and betray him, he is forced to evade a police detective and an eccentric hit man while seeking his revenge.

Right Behind You (FBI Profiler #7)
Author: Lisa Gardner
Summary: Eight years ago, Sharlah's older brother beat their drunken father to death with a baseball bat in order to save both of their lives.  Now 13-years-old, she has finally moved on.  About to be adopted by retired FBI profiler Pierce Quincy and his partner, Rainie, Sharlah loves one thing best about her new family: They are all experts on monsters.  Then the call comes in.  A double murder at a local gas station, followed by reports of an armed suspect shooting his way through the wilds of Oregon.  As Quincy and Rainie race to assist, they are forced to confront mounting evidence.  The shooter may very well be Sharlah's older brother, and it appears his killing spree has only just begun.

The Prisoner (John Wells #11)
Author: Alex Berenson
Summary: It's the most dangerous mission of John Wells' career.  Evidence is mounting that someone high up in the CIA is doing the unthinkable - passing messages to ISIS, alerting them to planned operations.  Finding out the mole's identity without alerting him, however, will be very hard, and to accomplish it, Wells will have to do something he thought he'd left behind forever.  He will have to reassume his former identity as an al Qaeda jihadi, get captured, and go undercover to befriend an ISIS prisoner in a secret Bulgarian prison.

Rather Be the Devil
Author: Ian Rankin
Summary: As he settles into an uneasy retirement, Rebus has given up his favorite vices.  THere's just one habit he can't shake: he can't let go of an unsolved case.  It's the only pastime he has left and up until now, it's the only one that wasn't threatening to kill him.  But when Rebus starts reexamining the facts behind the long-ago murder of a glamorous woman at a luxurious hotel - on the same night a famous rock star and his entourage were also staying there - the past comes roaring back to life with a vengeance.

Look for these titles at your Abilene Public Library and get yourselves on the reserve lists so you're certain to keep up with some of the popular releases of the week.
