My Rating: ✮✮✮✮

In his thriller The 7th Victim, Alan Jacobson established FBI profiler Karen Vail as one of the most exciting new protagonists in the genre. In Crush, Karen Vail returns to confront a serial killer unlike any she has seen before, the hunt for whom will call on all her skills--and shake her confidence to its core.

My Review:
Just like Book 1, The 7th Victim, this book did not disappoint, in true Karen Vail fashion! Alan Jacobson continued to capture the true essence of who Karen Vail is, which keeps you captivated throughout!

Karen Vail is such a complex but interesting character, and Book 2 takes us on vacation with Karen and lets us see her blooming relationship with Robby! It doesn't take long for Karen to be elbow deep in another murder investigation, and as usual, seeming to be up to her eyeballs in trouble! I think that is what makes Karen such an enjoyable character!

This book is full of different plots, twists, and turns, which keep you guessing throughout the whole book! As with book one, I did feel like the book was a little longer than necessary, but it didn't cause enough of a problem to make me not want to finish it! As a matter of a fact, with an ending like this book had, I can't wait to run out and get Book 3! The ending to Crush was the mac daddy of all cliffhangers!

The narrator did a wonderful job of portraying Karen Vail, and even though it wasn't the same narrator from Book 1, she tricked me into thinking that she was! She was able to distinctly portray each of the different characters, male and female, with ease! I enjoyed listening to Trish Hicks and think she has done a wonderful job throughout the entire book!

Overall, this has been a great series and I am certainly glad that I randomly came across it! I won't hesitate to recommend this series to all of my friends, as well as check out other titles of Jacobson's! This was definitely a thrilling ride!
