Review : The Postcard Killers by James Patterson & Liza Marklund 

​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.  (From: Goodreads)

Genres: mystery, detective, thriller 

Publisher: Vision, Hachette Book Group

Pages: 421 pages 

The scariest vacation thriller ever.

Jacob, the detective from NYPD, had followed the postcard killers through Europe.  

Dessie, the reporter from Sweden, had just received a postcard from the killers.

The killers.  They were sick.

The settings are mainly in Stockholm.  Good thing is that I’ve been to that beautiful place!  It’s cool to get the memories back.

The story focuses more on how to get the killers rather than who are the killers.

There are two ways to see this case, from the law enforcement and from the killers.

This is a thrilling read.  I give this 3 out of 5 stars.  The plots are a little bit too rough.


I know that the story ended well.  However, this was not how I want it to end.

I kinda wish that the Swedish police hadn’t already found Mac and Sylvia.  Dessie and Jacob couldn’t help but fall for each other.  And then…BANG!  They were killed by the postcard killers.  

Happy reading, guys.  I hope you all have a nice day.
