VJ Books Features Alan Jacobson!

Alan Jacobson is the National Bestselling Author of several critically acclaimed thrillers. Alan's two decades of research and training with the FBI’s profiling unit, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the US Marshals Service, Scotland Yard, SWAT, and branches of the US military have helped shape the stories he tells and the characters that populate his novels. The San Francisco Chronicle stated that “Alan Jacobson researches his books like a good newspaper reporter, and then pushes the envelope into reality more thoroughly than the typical crime novel could ever allow.”

Alan’s novels have made numerous “Top 10 Best Books of the Year” lists and five have been optioned by Hollywood. His main series character, FBI Profiler Karen Vail, was culled from several years of work with the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit and tracks unintentionally closely to the real female FBI profiler, with whom Alan has worked for more than fifteen years. Karen Vail has been described as “My kind of hero” by Michael Connelly and as “tough, smart, funny, and very believable” by Nelson DeMille."

In 2014, Suspense Magazine named Spectrum “One of the Year’s Best” novels.

Alan recently announced the launch of a new series: the OPSIG Team Black novels featuring Karen Vail, Aaron "Uzi" Uziel, and Hector DeSantos. Their mission is to carry out "black" missions to keep America safe from foreign assassins, rogue governments, terror attacks, and other national security threats. The next thriller in this series is THE LAST CODEX.

Breaking News! VJ Books and Norwood press offers FANFARE, a new crowd funding opportunity for Alan's fans to take part in the new release of THE LAST CODEX.
