Editorial Reviews

Book Description

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.

Review

"A powerful thriller, brilliantly conceived and written."
- Clive Cussler

"Inmate 1577 is a mystery masterpiece...the inspiration for thriller writers in the years ahead."
- New York Journal of Books

"Another rippin' good 'Alan Jacobson read'!"
- San Francisco Chronicle


"Jacobson's previous books were gripping thrill rides, but with Inmate 1577 Jacobson has taken it to another level."
The Strand Magazine

"Continues his streak of terrific mind-bending thrillers. Jacobson should be mandatory reading for the James Patterson crowd; an essential addition to any fiction collection."
- Library Journal


"Alan Jacobson has captured the desolate solitude that distinguished Alcatraz as the toughest US Penitentiary which housed the worst of the worst. This is not only a riveting read...but it possesses an authenticity that brought back memories from my many years on The Rock."
- George DeVincenzi, Alcatraz Correctional Officer (1950-1957)

"In my 27 years of working at USP Leavenworth as a Correctional Officer and Institution Historian, no other book has painted the story of what it's like to survive behind those 40 foot walls better than Inmate 1577. Hats off to Alan Jacobson!"
- Kenneth LaMaster, Leavenworth Correctional Officer (ret), Institution Historian, and author --This text refers to the preloaded_digital_audio_player edition.
