Publisher's Summary

Paris is stunning in the summer.

NYPD detective Jacob 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 cafe through the eyes of his daughter's killer.

The killing is simply marvelous.

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 been found dead. Little connects the murders other than a postcard to the local newspaper that precedes each new victim.

Wish you were here.

Now Kanon teams up with the Swedish reporter Dessie Larsson, who has just received a postcard in Stockholm - and they 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.

    "Killing it"

    I loved this story. The dark story is thrill filled. If you love mystery, sex, violent crimes. This book is for you.

    "Strange Book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Bizzare is the best thing I can think of. Unbelievable, finally quit half way through as I had enough of blood, guts and strange behaviors.


    Has The Postcard Killers turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but will look at reviews first.

    Story
    "A little confusing but still entertaining"
    Would you try another book from James Patterson and Liza Marklund and/or the narrators?

    I would definitely listen to another Jame Patterson. He always delivers fast, entertaining reads/listens.


    If you’ve listened to books by James Patterson and Liza Marklund before, how does this one compare?

    This was my first James Patterson and Liza Marklund story. They seem make a good team.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I got a little lost at times with the different voices...I usually prefer to listen to just one narrator. I like that there were male and female voices, but I was expecting them to read the male and female lines like a play...didn't like how each narrator spoke both male and female in the different chapters. They each performed well, though.


    Any additional comments?

    This would probably make a good beach read, but I didn't find the story to be quite memorable. There was a steamy sex scene, but it gets spoiled by some gross details revealed later in the story.

    "Yuck."

    I had never read a James Patterson "novel" before "The Postcard Killers," but I was interested in collaborative writing (how *do* two authors get credit for one book?). After a little digging I realized that J.P. gives another writer an "outline" for a plot, and then the other writer does all the work.

    This is a contrived, empty book that contains one of the most awkward sex scenes I've ever read. It is a passionless affair. The *mystery* is predictable, privileged, and crudely compiled.

    I stopped listening at this line: "If this is so wrong, I don't want to be right." SERIOUSLY?!

    If I have saved one literate soul from consuming this garbage, I feel like I might redeem myself from contributing money to fund work like this.

    Also: The music they inserted into the audio production was corny and unnecessary. As was the entire book (corny and unnecessary).

    "Plot okay, characters, well...."

    Listening to this book as a Liza Marklund fan (never read anything by Patterson before), I was a bit disappointed by the characters. The plot is okay. But what I love about Marklund is her characters. Life is happening to them and as a part of life the case develops, not the other way round.
    Here things seemed very construed - apart from the fact that I can't understand how the protagonists could fall for each other. Really.... hardly seen anything needing more suspension of disbelief.
