              National-bestselling author Alan Jacobson brings back renowned FBI profiler Karen Vail in an intelligent thriller that bridges time and space When an elderly woman is found raped and brutally murdered in San Francisco, Vail heads west to team up with SFPD Inspector Lance Burden a...nd her former task force colleague Detective Roxxann Dixon. As Vail, Burden, and Dixon follow the killer's trail in and around San Francisco, the offender continues his rampage, leaving behind clues that ultimately lead them to the most unlikely of places: a mysterious island ripped from city lore whose long-buried, decades-old secrets hold the key to their case. Alcatraz. The Rock. It's a case that has more twists and turns than the famed Lombard Street . . . and a novel that Clive Cussler calls a powerful thriller, brilliantly conceived and written. Inmate 1577 is a grand slam that ranks Alan Jacobson on par with such literary luminaries as Michael Connelly, Nelson DeMille, and James Patterson. This one will be tough to top. -John Wills, New York Journal of Books Jacobson's latest Vail novel continues his streak of terrific mind-bending thrillers. The story line seems straightforward at first, but when the twists come, even the most hard-core thriller fans will not figure everything out. Jacobson should be mandatory reading for the James Patterson crowd; this is an essential addition to any fiction collection. -Library Journal In my 27 years of working at USP Leavenworth as a Correctional Officer and Institution Historian, no other book has painted the story of what it's like to survive behind those 40 foot walls better than Inmate 1577. Hats off to Alan Jacobson for his relentless research and desire to bring credibility to an already fascinating story! -Kenneth M. LaMaster, author and retired Leavenworth historian Inmate 1577 is everything you'd come to expect from an Alan Jacobson novel, a page-turning thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat for hours . . . his previous boo

              How well do you really know the person you love? How far would you go to find out? [Description] If there's one person in the world Dr. Lauren Chambers is sure she can rely on, it's her beloved husband, Michael. Recovering from an agoraphobic depression and prone to episodes of b...linding anxiety, Lauren is a gifted psychologist for whom her husband's love and support mean everything. So when Michael suddenly and mysteriously vanishes, Lauren once again finds herself balancing on a knife's edge, haunted more than ever by an all-too-familiar paranoia. Is there more to it than anxiety though? Private investigator Nick Bradley believes so. When the pair takes off on a cross-country journey in search of answers, they discover a series of unsettling truths about the husband Lauren believed she knew so well . . . and drive straight into a page-turning tale of concealed identities, an assassin's vendetta, and murderous revenge. Alan Jacobson leads readers on an exhilarating road thriller built for hairpin turns and unexpected detours as Lauren heads for a face-off with the most dangerous secret of all: the truth. The Hunted not only launched the OPSIG Team Black series, it introduced several enigmatic characters that have continued to capture the hearts and minds of readers for fifteen years. Jacobson keeps readers guessing right up until the last page, so trying to put this book down is like trying not to eat the last chocolate chip cookie: most of us will just give in. -Booklist This psychological twister breaks the mold of the typical thriller. -BookReporter.com The Hunted is a wild page-turning ride through all kinds of interesting turns and corners and unexpected twists. . . .

              The 7th Victim: A Novel (EPUB ebook)

              By Jacobson, Alan

              Introducing FBI profiler Karen Vail, who crosses paths with a Virginia serial killer in the first in the bestselling series. Special Agent Karen Vail "is a knockout, tough and brilliant" (Tess Gerritsen). As lead profiler for the FBI, Vail is spearheading the task force investiga...tion into a serial killer known as "Dead Eyes," who's been terrorizing Fairfax County, Virginia. What separates this psychopath from the others is a peculiar savagery, and an intimate knowledge of the FBI's detailed strategy of pursuit. What separates Vail from her peers is a life that has made her hard and uncompromising. Recently divorced from an abusive husband, and in the throes of an ugly custody battle, she's also helpless against her mother's struggle with Alzheimer's. But little by little, as Vail's personal baggage begins to consume her, the investigation threatens to derail. Now she's weighing her last hope on a controversial profile. It suggests that the one key to solving the case lies with the seventh victim. But that key will also unlock secrets that could destroy Vail's career, and expose a truth that even she might not be strong enough to survive. In compiling his research for The 7th Victim, Alan Jacobson was allowed wide-ranging access to the FBI's behavioral profiling unit over several years. Named one of the top five books of the year by Library Journal, it's "a quantum leap in terror and suspense ...A masterpiece" (New York Times-bestselling author James Rollins).
