Overview

In a short story derived from the highly praised national bestselling Karen Vail series of thrillers, Fatal Twist gives the reader a taste of the dynamic FBI profiler, who has been called “my kind of hero” by Michael Connelly, “a hell of a lady: tough, smart, funny, and very believable” by Nelson DeMille, and “compelling” by James Patterson

The Park Rapist has murdered his first victim—and FBI profiler Karen Vail is on the case. As Vail races through the streets of Washington, DC, to chase down a promising lead that may help her catch the killer, a military-trained sniper takes aim at his target, a wealthy businessman’s son. But what brings these two unrelated offenders together is something the nation’s capital has never before experienced.

Alan Jacobson received several years of personalized training from two senior FBI profilers at the behavioral analysis unit in Quantico. Fatal Twist, like Jacobson’s Karen Vail novels The 7th VictimCrushVelocity, and Inmate 1577, brings real characters to the page—and in the process takes readers on a thrilling ride that culminates in an ending that leaves them satisfied . . . and wanting more.

About the Author

Alan Jacobson is the national bestselling author of several critically acclaimed novels. In order to take readers behind the scenes to places they might never go, Jacobson has embedded himself in many federal agencies, including spending several years working with two senior profilers at the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s vaunted Behavioral Analysis Unit in Quantico. During that time, Jacobson edited four published FBI research papers on serial offenders, attended numerous FBI training courses, worked with the head firearms instructor at the academy, and received ongoing personalized instruction on serial killers—which continues to this day. He has also worked with high-ranking members of the Drug Enforcement Administration, the US Marshals Service, the New York Police Department, SWAT teams, local bomb squads, branches of the US military, chief superintendents and detective sergeants at Scotland Yard, criminals, armorers, helicopter pilots, chief executive officers, historians, and Special Forces operators. These experiences have helped him to create gripping, realistic stories and characters. His series protagonist, FBI profiler Karen Vail, resonates with both female and male readers, and writers such as Nelson DeMille, James Patterson, and Michael Connelly have called Vail one of the most compelling heroes in suspense fiction.

I read Inmate 1577 then purchased the next book in the Karen Vail series, a short story - Fatal Twist. I got the 1st 48 pages of Inmate 1577. Not sure if it is a Nook screw up or publisher error , but i am not a happy camper.
