Review: Inmate 1577
Inmate 1577 by Alan Jacobson is the fourth book in the “Karen Vail” thriller series. Publisher: Premier Digital Publishing LLC, July 2011
When an elderly woman is found raped and brutally murdered in San Francisco, Vail heads west to team up with SFPD Inspector Lance Burden and her former task force colleague, Detective Roxxann Dixon. As Vail, Burden, and Dixon follow the killer’s trail in and around San Francisco, the offender continues his rampage, leaving behind clues that ultimately lead them to the most unlikely of places: a mysterious island ripped from city lore whose long-buried, decades-old secrets hold the key to their case. Alcatraz. The Rock.
What a thrilling ride. The author weaves two separate events from the past to the present and it’s in the present that we find Vail and the team looking for a connection between the brutal murder and rape of two elderly women and their husbands. When more victims are found, sifting through the clues trying to find a link between them and Karen’s profile will be the key to finding the killer. This fast-paced, action-filled drama kept me turning the pages as I could not put this book down. With so many twist and turns, this thriller kept me guessing and oh man, I did not see that coming when the killer’s identity was revealed. A great story that has me waiting for the next chapter in Karen Vail’s journey.
