The 7th Victim by Alan Jacobson

From Amazon ~~


The Dead Eyes Killer lurks in the backyard of the famed FBI Profiling Unit. His brutal murders confound the local task force, despite the gifted profiling skills of Special Agent Karen Vail. But along with Vail’s insight and expertise comes considerable personal and professional baggage.

On leave pending a review of her assault on her abusive ex-husband, Vail must battle forces determined to bring her down, as she fights to find Dead Eyes before he murders more young women. But the seventh victim is the key to all that stirs this killer…the key that will unlock secrets perhaps too painful for Vail to bear. These are secrets that threaten to destroy her, secrets that will bring down her storied career. For Karen Vail, the truth rests at the heart of a lie. And uncovering it could get her killed…

With material meticulously researched during seven years of study with the Bureau’s vaunted profiling unit, Alan Jacobson brings refreshing realism and unprecedented accuracy to his pages.

The 7th Victim is a page-turner as only Alan Jacobson can write, with a stunning twist of an ending that will satisfy even the most discerning thriller reader.

What an amazing thriller. Karen Vail is a profiler for the FBI on the hunt of a serial killer. Not only is she working this case, but she’s also dealing with a violent ex-husband, a son in a coma and a mother who needs to be in assisted living. Along the way she will encounter more twists and turns than a roller coaster. She’ll learn secrets about her past that will astound her. Do the secrets in her past relate to the case she’s working on? Will they change her forever? Alan Jacobson does a masterful job of bringing the reader into the world of the BAU and the ways in which the profilers there do their job. The ending of the book is such a shocker – it will knock your socks off!!
