"Postcard Killers","James Patterson","","review",
"This was a fast moving mystery story. A New York detective's daughter and her boyfriend are killed in Rome, and he arrives in Europe distraught, dirty and disheveled to find the killers. Bodies of other couples touring Europe are turning up in other major cities, and posed like famous works of art. The only clues are a postcard and photos of victims sent to local newspaper reporters . James Patterson is the prolific, number #1 American mystery writer, but it seems he is worried about the growing popularity of Scandinavian mystery writers, such as Larsson. Mankell and Nesbo, so of course the major part of the story takes part in Stockholm and is co-authored by a Swedish writer. They have a supplied the detective with a love interest, a female reporter who received the postcard in Sweden. A quick, easy read, but forgettable. It seems Patterson has a new book out every month lately. A popular mystery writer, but feel he needs to slow down"

Laurin I completely agree. I would rather wait for new books to come out than have one out every week with a different author tacked on.
