James Patterson draws the reader immediately into each book. Of course, Patterson's style of writing follows an example format that compels the reader deeper into the story. The action and language gather momentum that forces the reader to gobble up the pages. Patterson's book center on action, not on analysis. I enjoy a break from description and commentary, and Patterson provides a pleasant reprieve. Gory killings and crazy killers litter the pages, but glimpses of world-famous cities populate the mad race to find the killers. Patterson's language remains simplistic and his characters confirm to various stereotypes, but Patterson's books make you wonder if the person you just met might be a killer. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316089516, Hardcover)

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.
