Paris is stunning in the summerNYPD 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.
This novel by Patterson made quite an action packed audiobook for me. There are multiple narrators telling us this disturbing story including Erik Singer, Katherine Kellgren, and Reg Rogers. Jacob Kanon takes it upon himself to track down these killers all over the globe after they claim his daughter as one of their victims.
Jacob finds that he needs to enlist the assistance of Dessie, a foreign reporter. After they spend time together on this quest for justice a relationship does bloom and she helps him to recover from the loss of his daughter. After thoroughly investigating several crime scenes they conclude that the killers seem to be trying to duplicate famous works of art. After making this realization they are led to the killers who happen to be a brother/sister team with a very disturbing relationship.
Jacob and Dessie are confident that all is safe after the Rudolph's are locked away, but before too long another murder takes place. Senior officials decide that a mistake has been made with the arrest and allow the Rudolph's to go free. This will lead our investigators to find that this crime spree is much larger than just the two individuals that were suspected and they must figure out how to put a stop to it.
I did enjoy this audiobook and as I said earlier it was definitely action packed. There were plenty of sound effects, especially at the end that had me jumping in my seat. If you are a Patterson fan, you probably won't want to miss this novel.
My Rating: 4/5
