9781501293788: Velocity (Karen Vail Series)

Detective Robby Hernandez, Karen Vail’s boyfriend, has vanished into the dense air of a Napa Valley evening. There are no clues to his whereabouts, other than a blood stain and tenuous connections to a vicious serial killer operating in the wine country. As the task force struggles with Robby’s disappearance, the killer challenges Vail by boldly leaving his high profile victims in public places. Is this offender somehow responsible for Robby’s disappearance? Evidence suggests that he is—but just when Vail and the task force begin to make progress, the FBI orders Vail to return to Quantico to handle a case of vital importance. Back in Washington, Vail engages covert government operative Hector DeSantos to determine what happened to Robby. It’s a move that backfires when DeSantos’s confidential informants lead them into unforeseen dangers, forcing Vail to face off against powerful foes unlike any she’s ever encountered, threatening her life, her career . . . all that she holds dear. In a frantic race against time that takes them from the monuments of Washington, D.C., to the wealthy beach enclaves of San Diego and the bright excesses of Las Vegas, shocking truths emerge—truths that will forever change Karen Vail.

About the Author:

Alan Jacobson received his bachelor of Arts in English writing from Queens College of the City of New York, and his doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose, California. He has extensive experience testifying as an expert witness, which has exposed him to the many strengths and weaknesses of the judicial system. His previous novels include Crush, The 7th Victim, The Hunted and False Accusations. Alan lives in Northern California.

From AudioFile:

After capturing a sadistic serial killer, FBI Agent Karen Vail and her partner/boyfriend, Robby, take a vacation. In short order, Robby mysteriously disappears, and an exhausted Vail is determined to find him, no matter what rules she breaks. Even with the great setup, Alan Jacobson's latest thriller feels thin and contrived. Perhaps it's because VELOCITY's action begins--without a breath--where his previous novel, CRUSH, ended. Characters from earlier books enter and exit without context, and Deanna Hurst's narration can do little to mitigate the problem. While she keeps the plot's bewildering randomness moving forward, many of her male characters sound forced while her female characters are either dispassionate or overwrought. Listeners new to the series may want to start at the beginning or face terminal confusion. S.J.H. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
