    Dr. Lauren Chambers, an agoraphobic psychologist has an anxiety attack when her beloved husband Michael fails to return home from a skiing trip. Private detective Nick Bradley helps Lauren track down Michael, who apparently is actually Harper. As Michael and Lauren go to extraordinary lengths to meet up and protect one another, government agents hinder their progress.

    Alan Jacobson follows up his exciting best-selling FALSE ACCUSATIONS with the chilling thriller, THE HUNTED, a novel that keeps readers' attention all through the long cold night. Although vulnerable, Lauren shows remarkable inner strength as she goes the extra kilometer to learn just what kind of person she married. The fast-paced story line reads like a Jack Higgins thriller, but with a clearly Jacobson spin on the plot. This complex novel is worth the hardcover price.
