Now you can have Baker & Taylor too, with a free poster (while supplies last)! Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org (subject: True Tails of Baker and Taylor) from your professional/library-issued e-mail address and make sure to include your library’s mailing address.

REDEMPTION ROAD by John Hart
In New York Times bestselling author Hart’s highly anticipated Southern gothic thriller, a troubled detective must confront her past in the aftermath of a brutal shooting. Meanwhile, a former cop walks free after 13 years in prison—is he responsible for what happened at the abandoned church deep in the forest? “[Calling it a] thriller doesn’t do full justice to the book at all. Great for literary and thriller lovers alike.” — Kellie Currie, Delphi Public Library, Delphi IN
CITY OF THE LOST by Kelley Armstrong
Casey Duncan is a homicide detective with a secret: when she was in college, she killed a man. She was never caught, but he was the grandson of a mobster and she knows this crime will catch up to her. On the run now, Casey finds refuge in an off-the-grid town harboring those wishing to disappear, but the town has its own dark secrets. “At heart this is a blood-soaked, locked-room mystery on steroids; readers should prepare for an all-nighter to finish it.” — Booklist
