“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!”
–Michael Connelly, New York Times Bestselling Author
“Jacobson captures the complexity of the mission faced by DEA, the threat posed to our country, and the constant danger our agents face battling members of international drug trafficking organizations. As someone who devoted his career to carrying out that mission, I can say first-hand that Velocity hits the target.”
–Supervisory Special Agent Michael Upchurch, Drug Enforcement Administration (ret)
Most people dream of going to the Napa Valley. FBI Profiler Karen Vail can’t wait to get out of there.
Velocity, the third novel featuring FBI Profiler Karen Vail (after Crush), is a high octane thriller that Michael Connelly describes as “Relentless as a bullet.” In keeping with Alan Jacobson’s page-turning style, Velocity is a memorable work with rich, believable characters and an intricately plotted story that’s well-researched and fitting for today’s times. It’s more than a novel. It’s a mind-bending emotional roller coaster…
A new killer is on the loose, seemingly related to the one Vail encountered in Crush. But this killer turns out to be like quicksand, pulling her deeper into a world she’s never before experienced…forcing her to face off against foes more dangerous than any she’s ever encountered.
Note: Velocity is best enjoyed after reading Crush.
