New York City: home to world-renowned museums, theater, restaurants, iconic sports franchises. Central Park. Wall Street. And an infamous serial killer who’s terrorized The Big Apple for decades. The year is 1995 and the NYPD has just graduated a promising new patrol officer named Karen Vail. The rookie’s first day on the job is anything but uneventful, however, when she finds herself at the crime scene of a young woman murdered in an unusual manner. Vail is unsure of what she’s looking at or what it means—but it’s a case that will weigh on her mind for nearly twenty years. As the years pass, Vail’s career takes unexpected twists and turns—as does the case that’s come to be known as “Hades.” Now a skilled FBI Profiler, will Vail be in a better position to catch the killer? Or will Hades prove to be Karen Vail's hell on earth? The character who has captivated readers worldwide—and who won the praise of literary giants Michael Connelly, James Patterson, and Nelson DeMille—returns in a story that captures the experiences that shaped the revered profiler and made her the top cop she is today.

Compelling and crisp, Spectrum satisfies the reader on every level. A pleasure to read.”

During my 40 years with the NYPD, I knew the streets of New York and the challenges a detective faces solving crimes in the big city. Alan Jacobson’s Spectrum put me back on the street by bringing a gritty realism and noirish perspective only a fellow New Yorker can provide. Spectrum’s authenticity enhances a riveting, well-told story.” —CAPTAIN EDWARD MAMET, COMMANDER OF DETECTIVES, NYPD (RET.)

Both Virginia and I recently read an advance copy of SPECTRUM. The story is absolutely riveting as we join Vail, fresh from the police academy, and follow her as she becomes the FBI Profiler that we have come to love and respect,” says John Hutchinson. He continues, “This is our fourth book with Alan, and his sixth in the Vail series. He really hit this one out of the park – fans of Karen Vail will be very pleased! We get to follow her through her career from her start as a NYC beat cop all the way to the present, as she is haunted by a crime scene she witnessed her first day on the force.” - Norwood Press & VJ Books
