About the Book

FBI profiler Karen Vail returns in Velocity, national bestselling author Alan Jacobson’s most explosive thriller to date. Vail’s boyfriend, Detective Robby Hernandez, has seemingly disappeared into the dense air of a Napa Valley evening. There are no clues to his whereabouts, other than a blood stain—and potential connections to a serial killer operating in the wine country. Despite using all means at her disposal to find out what happened to Robby, Vail is thwarted—until her colleague, hooks her up with Hector DeSantos, a covert Defense Department operative who has a knack for finding tough to locate information. But DeSantos is an unwilling partner and he is reluctant to work his valuable informants for what he views as Vail's personal crusade to find her lover. That is, until Vail pries loose long-buried secrets, lies, and deceptions on the part of her own task force members. It's information that even DeSantos can't ignore, a discovery of great magnitude that reveals larger forces at play—forces that propel Vail and DeSantos into a frantic search that takes them from the wineries of Napa Valley to the monuments of Washington, D.C., the wealthy beach enclaves of San Diego, and the bright excesses of Las Vegas.
