Book Review & Giveaway: Alan Jacobson is well-known for his bestselling Karen Vail series, featuring an FBI profiler, but he also writes excellent stand-alone novels. When the publisher offered us the opportunity to read and potentially review Jacobson’s latest stand-alone novel, Hard Target, it was a no brainer. Like novels so fast-paced that you can barely breath? Like political intrigue and conspiracies? Like action-packed thrillers? If so, buckle your seat belt because you’re in for one hell of a ride!

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0985255005, Paperback)

An enigmatic covert operative. A skilled FBI agent with a dark past. And a terror plot unlike any in history... An explosion pulverizes the president-elect's helicopter on Election Night. It soon becomes clear that the group behind the assassination possesses far greater reach than anything the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force has yet encountered—and a plot so deeply interwoven in the country’s fabric that it threatens to upend America's political system. But as Department of Defense covert operative Hector DeSantos and FBI Agent Aaron “Uzi” Uziel sort out who is behind the bombings, Uzi’s personal demons not only jeopardize the investigation but may sit at the heart of a tangle of lies that threaten to trigger an international terrorist attack. Hailed by political thriller master Vince Flynn as “a smart, complex novel that explodes from the page,” and by Lee Child as “a great thriller” that’s “fast, hard, and intelligent,” Hard Target is a ticking time bomb that keeps you clinging to the edge of your seat...and turning the pages. Note: Hard Target also features Jacobson's famed FBI Profiler, Karen Vail, in a key role affecting national security.
