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.

Come on, James, Can you think of some new material

Attention writers, please stop writing abridged books and selling them at unabridged prices!!! $18.00 for 7:23 hour book? Same with "Private". I almost didn't buy them, however I enjoy James Patterson. Then, after I read this, I bought "Private". Basically the same storyline. Come on! Anyway, I enjoyed the story. Very well written. Would have given it 5 stars, however i am so tired of these guys taking advantage of we buyers, throwing out short stories and selling them at novel prices, just so they can pay for their homes in Newport Coast (Oh, wait, that's Dean Koontz), or wherever! Sorry, I'm venting.....

Cardboard characters, so-so plot

This book was a real disappointment. The ending was telegraphed about two thirds of the way through the book and, while it had an interesting twist, the writing provided little support for the story. Worst of all, the characters were cardboard representations of conventional stereotypes--particularly the hero, who was depicted as the typical hostile, aggressive but highly competent NYC cop. The villian (or villians--don't want to spoil the plot) had no real motivation at all, at least none that rang true.

So, this novel filled up about 9 hours (part listened to as an audiobook, part read as an eBook at bedtime along the way) of dead time on a long driving trip, thus serving its primary purpose. Beyond that, however, it has little redeeming literary or social importance.

If reading co-authored James Patterson novels, I think I'll stick to the ones co-authored by either Maxine Paetro or Michael Ledgewick.
