Hold onto your hats, we have several new thrillers coming to the Bandera County Public Library.
Allison Brennan’s “The Third to Die” is the first installment in her newest series following Detective Kara Quinn. In it, Quinn happens upon the body of a young nurse while on her morning jog and believes the suspect is the notorious Triple Killer.
The killer is known for committing strings of heinous crimes and then disappearing for three years at a time. The detective will work on the case with the newly minted FBI team called the Mobile Response Team.
With time working against them, the team must find the killer before he goes into hiding again.
Jonathan Kellerman’s next installment in the Alex Delaware novels is called “The Museum of Desire.” It tells the tale of forensic psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware who is the one who is tapped when the police get a case that seems...different.
LAPD Detective Milo Sturgis once again reaches for the phone to call on his friend and colleague Delaware after he receives news of a terrifying murder in Bel Air. The case is beyond what either man has seen in their careers of solving murders. With multiple victims and no apparent links, Delaware and Sturgis navigate a maze of evidence hoping to bring the murderer to justice.
Preston and Child’s new book “Crooked River” begins in a quiet resort town of San Sanibel, Florida where residents walking along the beach notice something grotesquely amiss. Dozens of shoes are washing ashore, and to the horror of the town, each is filled with a crudely severed foot.
Agent Prendergast reluctantly takes on the case only to find himself facing an old adversary who would like nothing more than to use Prendergast as a subject for his malicious research.
For those who have not heard, the library received a grant from the Tocker Foundation providing the library several HotSpots.
HotSpots are wallet-sized devices that allow you free internet access everywhere you go. The HotSpots are available to check out for one-week intervals to all patrons who are in good standing with the library.
Come by the library at 515 Main St. in Bandera if you are interested in participating in this program.
