About the Author:

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 the past 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."

Review:

If you are even a teeny tiny, itty bitty bit paranoid, No Way Out will confirm all your worst fears. With the recent news that our government has been collecting more information on its citizens via phone records, emails, and social networking, one might be tempted to tone down one s electronic musings. This forfeiture of privacy has been lamented by some and shrugged off by others. But who is watching the watchers? Here is a tale of how governments, who are supposed to be hyper security conscious, can be hacked. Because these systems are viewed as failsafe, good people are allowed to do very bad things.... Alan Jacobson knows how to write suspense. Things go bad, and then get worse, and when it seems like they can t get any worse, they do. Karen has claustrophobia and finds herself in small, dark, tight spaces a lot in this novel adding to the reader s need to rip through the pages to find out what happens next. The prose zips the plot along. And the plot is itself compelling... what fun to read! Don t say you weren t warned. --New York Journal of Books

Alan Jacobson is a wonderfully vivid writer, with a sharp, dark eye for detail. No Way Out captures the vagaries of English society with humor, while not breaking stride from what is a thrilling and uniquely British story. --Peter James, International bestselling author

Jacobson has written the thriller of the year fast plot, incredible character development, and chilling atmosphere. No Way Out has everything you can ask for in a thriller, plus the bonus of reading a book which you ll re-read and which will never turn up in a second hand bookstore. --The Strand Magazine
