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.

    "First audio book -- kept me listening!"

    I love James Patterson novels and this is the first one I've listened to instead of reading myself. It definitely kept my attention -- I looked forward to my walking/jogging routine just so I could find out what happened next!

    "Wasted Credit"

    I love James Patterson ~ Usually. This book was a total disappointment for me. Switching from male to female voices in character would be fine, but just back and forth, chapter to chapter was very disruptive. I felt the book plodded along without any real suspense to it at all. Wish I had used the credit on another Lee Childs book.

    "Unimpressed"

    I had never read nor listened to a James Patterson novel, and after this I don't plan to again. The story line was acceptable, but the use of profanity and sexual sidelines made the story sound cheap. I have no issues with either of these (as I use them myself on a regular basis), but using them in a novel without a specific character development reasoning is just finding an easy way out, and shows a lack of creativity by the author. The final chapters playing drama music in the background was also over the top and not needed for someone used to reading vs. watching a movie.

    Story
    "Too many "he said, she said" when listening!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I read this book in PAPER form and enjoyed it. I bought it (from Audible) for a trip that my husband and I were taking.... LISTENING to it irritated my husband (and ME) to NO END!
    I discovered that, although the story was good, the writing, when READ to us was not very good. Not one of James Patterson's best works....The constant reminder of who was speaking was UNNECESSARY, as the reader changed voices and inflections remarkably well!


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader, I assume, was simply reading the pages. I guess I discovered that when I read in my head, I ignore repeated phrases -

    "Was glued to it from the beginning"

    Great book loved the Narrators. James Patterson is one of my favorite authors and he sure didnt let me down on this one.

    Story
    "BIG JAMES PATTERSON FAN"
    What made the experience of listening to The Postcard Killers the most enjoyable?

    I loved the story it was riviting and kept my interest.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I couldn't wait to see what the killers were going to model their next kill after.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was not a fan of the music that was added. I know it was for dramatic effect, but it came out of nowhere and was more of a distraction.

    "A Must Read!!!"

    Excellent, exciting, edge of your seat thriller. And for those who don't have time to read this book, or just prefer audible versions, I can tell you without a doubt that this was one of the best audio books I've ever listened to. Easy to keep up with and loved the accents, music, and effects they used to add to the drama of the story. Excellent story for a movie!
