Postcard Killers by James Patterson and Liza Marklund

Synopsis :

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 is what I consider a new title by James Patterson which he co wrote with another author and this time round it's someone by name of Liza Marklund.  I am sorry if I am not familiar with this name but then I am never familiar with co-authors of James Patterson, of which he has many.  Perhaps this is the new way famous authors now lend their names as a brand to ensure that the public will consider the book?

Anyway, no matter what, it quite worked as the name James Patterson does sell and readers would expect a thriller and a thriller is what I got in Postcard Killers.

Written in that fast, short chapters that perhaps is a template of any James Patterson thriller, I was rather caught up with this title and read it quite quickly too.  Since it's a trade paperback version, it wasn't very convenient to bring out so I read it mostly during the year end holidays at home.

It was worth the time spent.
