GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: The Postcard Killers by James Patterson & Liza Marklund

Description

NYPD detective Jack Kanon is on a tour of Europe's most gorgeous cities. But the sights aren't what draw him--he sees each museum, each cathedral, and each restaurant through a killer's eyes.

Kanon's daughter, Kimmy, and her boyfriend were murdered while on vacation in Rome. Since then, young couples in Paris, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, and Stockholm have become victims of the same sadistic killers. Now Kanon teams up with the Swedish reporter, Dessie Larsson. Every killing is preceded by a postcard to the local newspaper--and Kanon and Larsson think they know where the next victims will be. With relentless logic and unstoppable action, THE POSTCARD KILLERS may be James Patterson's most vivid and compelling thriller yet.

LIKED IT

The first half of this story is fast paced and I didn't want to turn it off, then it dragged me down.  I had to force myself to finish this one.  I can't say this is one of the best James Patterson books I have ever read, but it is close.  You can guess that the serial killer on the loose makes his presence known by sending a postcard to the local press to announce the upcoming murder.  The story line is a very familiar Patterson theme, sex and murder.  This one was just "meh" for me.

  2. I am reading this right now. I find that his books written with other people are just not as good as him written alone ones. He sure does pop them out fast though.
