  • Another typical James Patterson just suspend belief and settle down for the ride And what a ride this one was I thoroughly enjoyed this story of a completely insane set of twins murdering their way around the world When they end up in Stockholm the Swedish police turn out to be totally ineffective, but our heroes, Jacob a NYPD detective and Dessie a newspaper reporter save the day suspend belief remember It was great fun, action packed and a totally satisfactory read Patterson is definitely my g [...]

  • NYPD cop Jacob Kanon has been chasing a pair of vicious killers across the capitals and holiday hotspots of Europe, killers who kick started their murderous spree by butchering his daughter and her fianc e in Rome Before each murder, a postcard is sent to the local newspaper, and when Stockholm based crime reporter Dessie Larsson receives the latest missive, she and Kanon team up to try to stop the killers once and for all Unfortunately for readers hoping that the co authoring of award winning S [...]

  • 3.5 Not bad at all I enjoyed the story and characters I love standalones but some of these characters would have been interesting to read about in series format for sure The international hunt of these killers is pretty engrossing and the story does move at a good pace My only issue was the quick succession of the romance aspect of the two main characters This story is twisted in a nature but that just adds to the story It only takes four or five hours to read it I read the mass market paperback [...]

  • James Patterson can always be counted on for a fun and exciting thriller and mystery He and Swedish author Liza Marklund don t dissapoint with this one It may not be as polished and memorable as some of his Women s Murder Club or Alex Cross books, but it still held it s own.The following may or may not contain spoilers.NYPD detective Jacob Kanon is all over Europe, trying to stop a duo of killers who murder young vacationing couples They send postcards to journalists before the kill, and then se [...]

  • The best thing I can say about the book is that it s a page turner and that s about it.As far as I understand from user reviews, it s a typical James Patterson novel I haven t read any of his other books , so if you re a fan you re going to enjoy it.That is not my case, however.The novel is action packed, which accounts for the page turning, but also for the shallow characters and superficial story.The basic premise is not that bad A young couple travels around Europe, killing other couples and [...]

  • I ve read Patterson before but this one was addictive, a real page turner First of all I m a sucker for anything with a reference to Paris on the cover the Eiffel Tower in this case paperback version When I picked it up and read the endorsement on the back from the BookReporter A fun read puzzles, and exotic places than you will probably ever visit in person I was totally hooked being a huge fan of the travel writing genre Although it started off graphically with gruesome detail than I normal [...]

  • Libro letto in un giorno, in poche parole divorato.Questa per me era la prima volta che mi avventuravo nel mondo letterario di James Partterson A dire la verit ero timorosa di questa lettura perch avevo paura di trovarmi difronte a un thriller pesante in cui le scene dei omicidi erano troppo macabre oppure di combattere con un linguaggio troppo poliziesco, invece tutto questo stato sostituito da un romanzo leggibile.Un thriller leggero e coinvolgente fino all ultimo respiro.L unica cosa che prop [...]

  • Up until this point, I had read two and a half books by Patterson in his adult range The half book so disgusted me that I gave up All three of them were Alex Cross books, and I think that was a major reason why I didn t really like his books his writing of an African American detective was so very bizarre that it made me uncomfortable Plus, I believe that Patterson clearly wins the Author of the Creepiest, Most Disturbing, and Downright Disgusting Sexytimes award Like, ever I would not want to p [...]

  • Quick, easy read Certainly, not a book that will improve my mind but just like trying to eat healthy, every once in awhile I need a cookie or a piece of chocolate to relax and feel happy I feel the same way about Patterson he is my mind candy I cannot fathom where he comes up with his creepy ideas but it is fun to escape once in awhile The Postcard Killers kept me guessing until the end because I couldn t figure out how they could be in so many places at once Hopefully, an end was put to these h [...]

  • This standalone thriller was good I know that he does not appeal to some, but I like the short chapters and staccato style of Patterson This one has a few twists and turns in store for the reader as it follows a heartbroken father intent on bringing his daughter s killers to justice Jacob is on the trail of a pair of serial killers who target other couples It s mindless entertainment and just the kind of escape reading that I wanted.

  • James Patterson seems to continually disappoint me these days It s bad enough that I hated his last two books, but this one is only marginally better Many people are die hard Patterson fans and until quite recently I would have also put myself in that category Unfortunately, I am now becoming very cynical when it comes to any book he has co written.This particular book I was actually looking forward to due to many reasons The first is that he has never co written with author before and secondly [...]

  • I am a Patterson junkie I admit it I m not ashamed of it Yes, he spits out novels like an assembly line, but I eagerly anticipate each and every book that he produces Although I enjoyed The Postcard Killers, it wasn t one of my favorite Patterson books I didn t feel any real connection to the characters in the story I didn t really care what happened to them I felt that the romance between the the male and female protagonist was forced and unnatural Their relationship actually made me uncomforta [...]

  • I usually don t get into the actual content of the book in my reviews, I just express my views on the book but am not able to stop myself here.This novel has degraded the meaning of art as much as possible and the dignity of brother and sister relationship was brought down.Felt that some unfitting content was introduced at unfitting situations, just to make the novel a commercial success.There were some unanswered questions in the bookIf the killers are trying to just create an imitation of the [...]

  • Not one of Pattersons best books Kind of a let down Post card killers are moving across Europe killing couples by slashing their throats and putting them in poses according to famous art exhibits Jacob a cop from New York is hot on the case because his daughter was one of the first victims He meets up with Dessie a reporter in Sweeden and they work to solve the case, while doing this they fall in love Not much to the story or the capture I was a little disappointed with this one I am a great Jam [...]

  • There is not a single shiver in this story, and despite a pocketful of lurid details, the writing was deadly dull I expect my guilty pleasures to offer entertainment, if nothing else, but there was nary a suspenseful or lively moment in this narrative If I were you, I wouldn t touch this one.

  • Please note I cannot quote anything from the book I d won and received an ARC copy through the contest on the author s website NYPD Detective Jacob Kanon has been all over Europe for almost six months His on the trail of a serial killer, one that sends postcards and pictures to the newspapers before and after each killing But it s for sure the murders are being committed by a serial killer Victims are of young couples in love, either boyfriend girlfriend, engaged, or newlyweds The victims are dr [...]

  • The action in this book picked up from the very first page, which actually left me a tiny bit shocked However, the investigative side did pick up after that rather quickly, and keep me hooked The chapters were brutally short 420 pages, 140 chapters which led to a lot of scene changes, but it was fairly easy to keep it all in my head The climax was drawn out a little too much for my liking, and then ended incredibly abruptly The resolution was nice, but I would have liked to have seen .

  • James Patterson teams up with Liza Marklund, a bestselling author from Scandanavia, to bring readers on a romp through Europe to catch a pair of killers that use postcards to local newspaper journalists as their calling card Dessie Larsson is a reporter for a Swedish newspaper, and she is the latest journalist to get such a postcard It does not take long for her to be contacted by Jacob Kanon, a detective from the New York Police Department.Jacob has an interest in the postcard killers, as well, [...]

  • I ve only read a few James Patterson novels I ve always heard great things about his writing and I really wanted to start reading some of his stuff My only problem thus far is that everything of his I ve read has been so predictable I ve had such high expectations for each of his books and I ve been let down with each one.Having said that I don t hate his books I think that the sheer number of books that he has released, with co authors, has lead to a bit of overkill I like the story lines, I li [...]

  • This was a quick read nice for the daily traintrip from and to work I did enjoy the short chapters, which is quite usual in Pattersons work and found the decor of Sweden pleasing, which was a break of Pattersons usual placement of adventures.The book is about a set of serial killers that post a postcard to the press before they murder a couple NYPD detective Jacob Kanon nice masculine and no nonsense name is on leave and tracking this set of killers His drive is that they killed his daughter Kim [...]

  • I really enjoy a good Patterson read It has all of the elements that I love in a story action, thrills, suspense Unfortunately, I didn t feel it with this particular book.The story itself was good very clever and well thought out Obviously I knew who the killers were since they were revealed at the very beginning of the story, but when it looked like they had alibis for some of the murders, I began to wonder who it was that was working with them I never was able to figure that one out on my own [...]

  • James Patterson may be somewhat of a formula writer, but he hides it well, and I am rarely disappointed.And this held true for The Postcard Killers, a collaborative effort with Liza Marklund Young couples on holiday in Europe are the prey of sadistic serial killers.Postcards are sent to journalists in each country before each murder is discovered One of these victims is the daughter of an NYPD detective, Jacob Kronon He has been on the trail of the killers and will not stop until his daughter ha [...]

  • If you are in to books with foreign settings you will really love this book But even if you aren t, you don t want to miss out on reading this rollercoaster of a thriller ride This is James Patterson Liza Marklund at their best I couldn t put this book down it was so enthralling that I even had dreams about it I KNOW that a book is really great if I dream about it The author s take you on a ride from the USA to Paris, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Stockholm Italy I m usually good at guessing the ending [...]

  • I couldn t connect to the characters They were poorly developed and I just didn t care what happened to them There was a lot of telling me about emotions and actions but not a lot of showing me and letting me feel it I found it dragged out in the sense that I could skim 5 or 6 pages, then read a few paragraphs, and not miss much of anything Yet, at the same time, the interesting scenes were too quick and I was left wanting details.I used to be a huge Patterson fan Over the past few years, I ve [...]

  • Can you say disappointed Well I am saying it about this book Mr Patterson has let me down BIG time The book did not grab me the way that all of his previous works have The story comes out of the gate as if it just ate a huge six course meal OOOOOOW So I continue on, and continued to be let down The Killers were not developed, their murders were un eventful, there were no bases or insight on their psych they were shallow The main character was not developed at all it seems as if he was just sat o [...]

  • I read the first 1 3 on a long plane ride and had a hard time keeping my eyes from slipping off the pages THE POSTCARD KILLERS wins the prize for being the most mediocre book ever written Had it been outright bad, I could ve just stuffed it into the stewardess s garbage sack and been done with it Instead I soldiered on, hoping it would get better.On the flight home, I read the next 1 3 Didn t get any better, didn t get worse I didn t like it I didn t dislike it Eventually, I just couldn t take i [...]

  • I love a mystery Especially an original mystery This was my first Patterson read The title cover illustration grabbed my attention the minute I saw it on the shelf The concept of a series of international murders of young couples, each preceded by a postcard clue, was intriguing The pursuit by the two main protagonists Jacob Dessie linked well together It was a fact, easy read I thoroughly enjoyed itloved the twists turnsbut to be honest, some parts of the murders were just a little too gruesome [...]
