Book 42: The Postcard Killers

Barnes and Noble's Description:

Written by: James Patterson

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 Killersmay be James Patterson's most vivid and compelling thriller yet.

My Thoughts: I am sure I've thought this a million times when I've read Patterson but this is my favorite ''non-series'' Patterson book. As always it was a quick and exciting read. I did get slightly bored during the end of ''Book Two'' but I easily got through it to continue. I liked the thrill of the Postcard Killer idea and of course liked it because it was based in Europe and I have been to some of the places included (always a bonus). All in all another great Patterson novel.

My Grade: A
