Congrats to Alan Jacobson. His book, VELOCITY (Vanguard Press Hardcover, October 2010, $24.95) has been chosen as a top gift pick by the Los Angeles Times: Los Angeles Times 2010 Gift Guide
For everyone who read Alan Jacobson’s pulse-pounding thriller, CRUSH last Fall, the wait is almost over for the continuation of the fast-paced story set in Napa Valley. VELOCITY (October 2010) is the third book in the Karen Vail series and it is even more explosive than the other two. We are reading the manuscript now to prepare for the publicity campaign, and we can’t put it down! As the story opens, Vail’s boyfriend, Detective Robby Hernandez, has disappeared without a trace. There are no clues to his whereabouts, other than a blood stain — and potential connections to the serial killer, John Wayne Mayfield. What lies ahead is like nothing Karen Vail has ever experienced.
As the New York Times bestselling author, Michael Connelly describes it, “From the first page VELOCITY is as relentless as a bullet. Karen Vail is my kind of hero and Alan Jacobson is my kind of writer!” If you haven’t read any of Jacobson’s thrillers, start with 7th VICITIM, the first in his Karen Vail series. Nelson DeMille calls Alan Jacobson, “a hell of a writer, and his lead character, Karen Vail, is a hell of a lady: tough, smart, funny, and very believable.” James Patterson agrees: “Karen Vail is as compelling a character as any created by Patricia Cornwell, or yours truly.”
There is still time to read the first two books in the series before VELOCITY is published in early Fall. Visit www.alanjacobson.com or www.vanguardpressbooks.com for more information.
