The 7th Victim: Karen Vail #1, A Review

The 7th Victim (Karen Vail, #1)The 7th Victim by Alan Jacobson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The 7th Victim Karen Vail 1 by Alan Jacobson is a suspense filled novel. I have a "girl crush" on Protagonist Karen Vail.

I got hooked on Alan Jacobson when I read The Lost Codex: An OPSIG Team Black Novel. I received that book for free in exchange for an honest review. It is number three in a series. The mark of a fine writer is that each book in a series can stand alone, and "The Lost Codex..." does.

My only gripe is that I had not read any of the Karen Vail books before "The 7th Victim." If I had, by the time I got to "The Lost Codex..." I would have been better prepared with my fan club garb.

"The 7th Victim" introduces Karen Vail as a Profiler for the FBI. This novel, published in 2008 was of an era that did not appreciate the methods of criminal profiling. The lack of appreciation was double for women.

This story grabbed this reader, and slammed me against the passenger seat. This journey is full of twists, straightaways and sharp turns.

As a voracious reader, I appreciate not seeing what is coming.

When I saw this, I had other books on my plate to read and review. As I peeked open the cover of "...7th Victim," I was unable to stop the momentum. With six books in the series, this reader has much to look forward to.

Thank you Alan Jacobson for feeding my addiction.
