I just read an advance of Alan Jacobson’s latest Karen Vail thriller. “Velocity” picks up where last year’s “Crush” left us, and wraps up the loose threads from that story and smoothly launches into another story of the drug trade, border issues, and more. If you have not read Alan’s Karen Vail novels, now is the time. Start with “The 7th Victim”, then “Crush”, followed by the upcoming “Velocity”. (September 2010). An incredible threesome. I’m thinking of offering a special on all three, as Alan has been gracious enough to sign some more of his backlist.
