Detective Amos Decker discovers that a mistake he made as a rookie detective may have led to deadly consequences in "Redemption" the latest Memory Man thriller by David Baldacci. In "Neon Prey" by John Sandford, Lucas Davenport tracks a prolific serial killer who has been operating for years without notice. "Two Weeks" by Karen Kingsbury is a heart-wrenching and redemptive story in the Baxter Family series about a couple desperately waiting to bring their adopted child home and a young mother about to make the biggest decision of her life.

We have one non-fiction book ready to go this week. "The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World" by Melinda Gates is a timely and necessary call to action for women's empowerment. For the last twenty years, Melinda Gates has been on a mission to find solutions for people with the most urgent needs, wherever they live. Throughout this journey, one thing has become increasingly clear to her: If you want to lift a society up, you need to stop keeping women down. In this moving and compelling book, Melinda shares lessons she's learned from the inspiring people she's met during her work and travels around the world. Melinda's unforgettable narrative is backed by startling data as she presents the issues that most need our attention from child marriage to lack of access to contraceptives to gender inequity in the workplace. For the first time, she writes about her personal life and the road to equality in her own marriage. Throughout, she shows how there has never been more opportunity to change the world and ourselves.

The Bookshop, The Kid Who Would Be King, and Justice League VS the Fatal Five are new movies ready for checkout.
