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.

I thought this book was good just had a different feel too then other patterson books because it took place in sweden. Didn't really like the ending though. It seemed really quick.

Gone are the days when Patterson wrote books that one remembered as exceptional. However, there are still a few that may not be memorable but are still a lot of fun and this is one of them

Great Novel, I like James Pattersons books very much

Another typical James Patterson book. I never get tired of them, but this wasn't his best. I enjoyed the plot nonetheless, because it was unpredicatble and consistent. The ending was definitely satisying. Some of the detective work was a little too good to be believable, but everything unfolded nicely. I recommend this book as a rainy day read.

One of James Patterson's better ones! Interesting plot, the kind of book you want to start and finish all at once. Good job Mr. Patterson!

Usually I'm hooked from the first page when it comes to James Patterson but because of the foreign country (it's hard to imagine places and people when I can't even pronounce their names!) I think it took me a little longer then usual to really get into it. Once I did though, I loved it! It's definitely different then anything James Patterson has written before.

This was a weird one, still great, but kind of too out there for me. I absolutley love J.P, I read the whole thing and was captivated until the end, but the sibling thing really threw me.

Normally LOVE his books, and when he co-authors as well: but this book just wasn't as good as all the others were! Really different in the follow through of events so it was harder to follow the plot, that may have been the difference. I just didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would - seeing it was a "James Patterson" book!

“Mona Lisa wasn’t her name,” Sylvia said. “Just Lisa. Mona is an Italian diminutive that can be taken to mean ‘lady’ or ‘her grace.’”
