The Postcard Killers

Art. Murder. A beautiful European backdrop. A seductive psychotic couple. And a distraught father hell-bent on catching his daughter's murderer.
I recently finished reading James Patterson’s The Postcard Killers, co-written with Liza Marklund – a Swedish journalist and crime writer,  courtesy of NetGalley and Klout*. I may be one of the few who has not read the Alex Cross series, but I do love Patterson’s Women’s Murder Club series.

Like most Patterson books, The Postcard Killers is a suspenseful page turner. I was actually a little upset when my eReader stopped being able to read it and read this on the bus on my laptop and on the weekend and lunch breaks. I only stopped for work and the kids.
You are transported to Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, and Finland as Jacob and Dessie track down the killers and eventually … now, I don’t want to give away any spoilers. But the second half of the book gets steamy and even more exciting than the first half.
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. 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.
