The Postcard Killers

A novel by James Patterson and Liza Marklund

< read all 3 reviews

Minor-league ending

  • Oct 13, 2010
I have read many of Patterson's books, including the Cross series and the Women's Murder Club series. This is neither. This one is about a NYPD detective whose daughter and her boyfriend were murdered in Rome. Other couples have since been murdered in some of Europe's major cities, and the detective has followed all the murders to Stockholm. Prior to each murder, the murderer(s?) sends a postcard to a local newspaper, announcing the murder.  It is an intriguing book up to the end, at which point I was disappointed by the lack of a "grand scale" killer.  Maybe that comes from my liking CIA-type, black ops thrillers.  That said, the rest of the story makes up for a vanilla ending.

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read

After reading Lee Child’s best-seller yesterday, I would call this suspenseful novel light reading, it is for a different audience. It is written …
