In The Cruelty by SCOTT BERGSTROM, high school student Gwendolyn Bloom's father vanishes, and so she sets off on a journey she never bargained. Traveling under a new identity, she must battle her way through Europe’s criminal underworld of assassins, spies, and criminal masterminds. To bring her father back alive, she must become every bit as cruel as the men holding him captive. In Vanished! a Framed! Novel by JAMES PONTI, Middle schoolers Florian and Margaret are recruited by the FBI to investigate the mysterious pranks at a prestigious private school attended by the President's daughter. But things take a sinister turn when a student vanishes in the middle of a concert at the Kennedy Center! Can Florian and Margaret save the day? In The Assassin's Curse: A Blackthorn Key Adventure by KEVIN SANDS, all that's left from a thwarted attempt to murder King Charles is a coded message with an ominous sign-off: more attempts are coming. When Christopher and his friends investigate a centuries-old curse with an ancient treasure promised to any assassin who succeeds they realize the entire royal family is at stake—as well as their own lives. Finally, in Audacity Jones Steals the Show by KIRBY LARSON, Audacity and her best friend, Bimmy, meet Harry Houdini, the world's most famous magician! As he prepares to make an elephant disappear from a crowded theater, Audacity and Bimmy discover a plot that puts Houdini's illusion in jeopardy. Who could be trying to sabotage the master magician?

These books are some of the best mystery books of the past year! From dark and chilling to hilarious and quirky, there is something for each of your young and teen readers. Don't miss out on this awesome Mystery-tastic event! Ages 8 and up. Thursday, April 25th, 6-8pm.
