The Postcard Killers by James PattersonBy Leona Romich • Sep 24th, 2010 • Category: Book Review 2010 • Email This Post • Print This Post
THE POSTCARD KILLERS by James Patterson & Liza Marklund is a novel of a couple touring some of the most gorgeous cities in Europe. Instead of taking in the beautiful attractions they are on a killing spree. Traveling from city to city,they are killing young couples on vacation.
Max and Sylvia Rudolph love works of art and moreso to be in countries with some of the most famous pieces around the world. With each kill they pose their victims to mimic a well-known painting or artifact. Each time Max and Sylvia reach a new city they send the local newspapers a postcard letting them know…in essence The Postcard Killers have arrived. There may or may not be a killing within their city.
NYPD homicide detective Jacob Kanon is always a few steps behind these vicious murderers. Jacob wants more than anything to catch these killers, especially since someone very dear to his heart was one of The Postcard Killers’ first victims. Jacob will travel the world all the way to the end of the earth if need be, but he will not rest until these murderers are brought to justice.
THE POSTCARD KILLERS by James Patterson is a suspenseful novel that will have you eagerly flipping the pages. Although it is known from the very beginning who the killers are, the reader eagerly awaits to see how the story will play out and if or when these murderers will be caught. Author James Patterson teams up with European bestselling-author Liza Marklund. I would have to say though this was not one of Mr. Patterson’s best books to date. THE POSTCARD KILLERS has the elements to be a great story; the plot was good but I could have done without the art lessons. The first half of the book was very good but further along the story kind of dragged and became repetitive.
