Book Description Reviews


See all titles by Alan Jacobson.

Renowned FBI Profiler Karen Vail returns in a thriller that bridges time and space. When an elderly woman is found raped and brutally murdered in San Francisco, Vail is sent back to the west coast to team up with SFPD Inspector Lance Burden and Detective Roxxann Dixon, who last worked with Vail in Velocity.

As Vail, Burden and Dixon follow the killerís 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. Itís a case that has more twists and turns than the famed Lombard Street.

5 of 5 WOW...KAREN VAIL...WOW July 1, 2014
Reviewer: S. Price from Suwanee, GA United States  
I first read an Alan Jacobson book when Barnes and Noble offered 7th Victim as their Free Friday book.  I sped through it, wanting more.  I entered the contest at the end of the book and my name is now a character in Inmate 1577.  I have now bought and read ALL his books and continue to want more.  They are witty, gritty, suspenseful and fact based in their procedure.  I was one of a few advance reader winners so I am half way through this book and am reading every free minute (yes, in the bathroom!).  It brings out more of the true Karen Vail as well as new characters and the return of old favorites.  This book is worth the buy!!  I bought the signed hardcover even though I am already reading!  Alan ranks #1 on my author list and will be yours too!

5 of 5 MBR Book Watch Reviews Alan Jacobson's Inmate July 1, 2014
Reviewer: H. Klausner  
In 1955 in Northfield, New Jersey, the police are on the scene of the murder of Sally MacNalley with her seven year old son Henry as the witness. Her husband Walton arrives and is arrested for the vicious homicide, but a jury found him not guilty. However, his life is shattered though he tried to raise his son.

In the present in San Francisco, SFP Inspector Lance Burdon leads the investigation into the rape, sodomy and murder of an old woman. FBI profiler Karen Vail is sent from DC to San Francisco to assist Burdon and his partner Detective Roxxann Dixon on the vicious homicide of the octogenarian. The FBI agent does not want to return to California after the recent Napa Valley mess (see Velocity and Crush), but does. In spite of the efforts of the trio, the ruthless psychopath rapes and kills other victims. The clues lead to Alcatraz, a tourist attraction for decades, but still the Rock for its surviving former inmates.

The latest Vail police procedural is a fabulous thriller as the sarcastic profiler and the dedicated serious cops struggle to end a psychopath's brutal killing spree. Although serial killers are a too frequent breed in the sub-genre (including the Vail case The 7th Victim), readers will relish this action-packed tale as the Fed, and the locals play cat and mouse with a vicious lunatic.
