Sono giovani, belli, felici. Sono giovani coppie in viaggio di nozze, in giro per le più importanti capitali europee. Hanno tutta la vita davanti. Ma sono morti che camminano. Perché qualcuno li uccide e ricompone i cadaveri in pose enigmatiche, li fotografa con una Polaroid e poi invia la foto a un giornalista del quotidiano locale. Ma quel giornalista sa che cosa lo aspetta, perché pochi giorni prima ha ricevuto una cartolina dai killer, una cartolina di morte.
Jacob Kanon, detective del NYPD, è l'unico sulle tracce dei killer, ma è sempre un passo indietro. Eppure non si arrende, non può cedere, perché ha un motivo del tutto personale per fermare la strage. Ora, finalmente, è a pochi passi dalla soluzione. Dopo Roma, Francoforte, Copenhagen e Parigi, Stoccolma potrebbe essere l'ultima tappa della catena di omicidi. Tutto dipende da una giornalista svedese, la giovane e agguerrita Dessie. Lei ha ricevuto l'ultima cartolina di morte e solo lei può aiutare Kanon, prima che i killer mettano in atto una contromossa imprevista. O forse l'hanno già fatto?

Another typical James Patterson - just suspend belief and settle down for the ride. And what a ride this one was! I thoroughly enjoyed this story of a completely insane set of twins murdering their way around the world. When they end up in Stockholm the Swedish police turn out to be totally ineffecti Leggi tutto

The best thing I can say about the book is that it's a page turner and that's about it. As far as I understand from user reviews, it's a typical James Patterson novel (I haven't read any of his other books), so if you're a fan you're going to enjoy it. That is not my case, however. The novel is action Leggi tutto
3.5* Not bad at all. I enjoyed the story and characters. I love standalones but some of these characters would have been interesting to read about in series format for sure. The international hunt of these killers is pretty engrossing and the story does move at a good pace. My only issue was the quic Leggi tutto
I've read Patterson before but this one was addictive, a real page turner. First of all I'm a sucker for anything with a reference to Paris on the cover (the Eiffel Tower in this case - paperback version). When I picked it up and read the endorsement on the back from the BookReporter.com "A fun read Leggi tutto
This was actually a reread for me but I didn’t remember much from the first time. Not one of my favorites as it was just so far fetched at times
James Patterson can always be counted on for a fun and exciting thriller and mystery. He and Swedish author Liza Marklund don't dissapoint with this one. It may not be as polished and memorable as some of his Women's Murder Club or Alex Cross books, but it still held it's own. The following may or ma Leggi tutto
I really liked the writing style of this book because it was extremely fast-paced and with so many great books out there waiting to be read, you just HAVE to improve your speed! The story wasn't anything extraordinary but well-crafted enough for sure, we knew from the beginning who the killers were
