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.

Jacobson's books have been published internationally, and several have been optioned for film and television. A number have been named to Best of the Year lists.

Jacobson has been interviewed extensively on television and radio, including on CNN, NPR, and multiple ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox network affiliates.

Reviews

"As one of the founding fathers of the FBI profiling unit, I can unequivocally state that The Seventh Victim sets a new standard for serial killer novels. Like Silence of the Lambs did twenty years ago, The Seventh Victim redefines the genre and brings it into the twenty-first century. With meticulous research and dead-on accuracy, Alan Jacobson has not only written a gripping, twisting thriller, he's created a must-read book." --Robert Ressler, world renowned FBI profiler (retired), founder of the FBI's VICAP (Violent Criminal Apprehension Program), recognized "father" of serial killer research, international lecturer, and bestselling author

"There are thrillers which you read once, then throw away. Alan Jacobson has written a book that is fast paced and intense and will make sure you'll read it over and over again. A masterful work--dark, creepy, yet at the same time you won't be able to put it down." --The Strand Magazine

"[The 7th Victim] has all the ingredients for a best-selling psychological thriller: strong female lead, multifaceted serial killer, compelling plot, and just enough secrets and surprises to keep the adrenaline racing." --School Library Journal
