Publisher Description

In the USA Today–bestselling author’s “addictive second Karen Vail thriller,” the FBI profiler tracks a serial killer through California wine country (Publishers Weekly).

In this follow-up to the standout bestseller The 7th Victim, Karen Vail ventures to Napa Valley, where a serial killer has been crushing his victims’ windpipes and leaving their bodies in caves. But when the Crush Killer learns that an FBI profiler has joined the Major Crimes Task Force, the newfound attention emboldens him, and he sets in motion a plan that wreaks havoc on the town—as well as the task force. Although a sudden break in the case helps Vail zero in on the identity of the killer, she senses that something isn’t right. If she doesn’t figure it out in time, the consequences will be dire.

In a rousing climax that leaves readers breathless, and which Publishers Weekly termed a “shockeroo ending,” Vail must pick up the pieces—and clean up the carnage left behind by the Crush Killer.

Meticulously researched during years of work with the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit, this high-velocity thriller from national bestselling author Alan Jacobson features the kind of edge-of-your-seat ending that inspired Nelson DeMille to call Jacobson “a hell of a writer.”
Crush is the first installment of a two-part story that concludes with Velocity, book three in the Karen Vail Series.

Part 1

Great book, but you must shell out more $ to find out the ending by buying a second book. Absolutely ridiculous that the author writes a disclaimer at the end explaining that it was just too long and his publisher wouldn't accept a book that long. You are left with a cliffhanger and only a partial explanation of what happened to the characters in the book that you already paid for!! Another $7.99 for the rest of the ending. Too bad, really liked his style of writing. Bought second book because I want to know ending, but no more!!
