WELCOME TO
BOOKIN' WITH BINGO'S
"ARE YOU LISTENING? DAY"


I AM EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THIS FRIDAY'S
"ARE YOU LISTENING? DAY"
AUDIO BOOK CHOICE IS.....
GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE POSTCARD KILLERS
BY JAMES PATTERSON
and LIZA MARKLUND


ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:

NYPD detective Jack 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 restaurant through a killer's eyes. 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 become victims of the same sadistic killers. Now Kanon teams up with the Swedish reporter, Dessie Larsson. Every killing is preceded by a postcard to the local newspaper--and Kanon and Larsson think they know where the next victims will be.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:


James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1976, James Patterson's books have sold more than 170 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the top-selling New York detective series of all time, featuring Detective Michael Bennett. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.

Liza Marklund
Born in 1962, Liza Marklund is one of Sweden's most popular authors of crime novels, a former journalist. She is married to Swedish producer Mikael Aspeborg. She has three children, the oldest from a former relationship.
Liza Marklund has been very successful as an author, and is also one of the major owners of the Swedish publishing house Piratförlaget.
is a Swedish journalist and author of the Annika Bengtzon series, which has sold 9 million copies in 30 languages. She lives in Sweden and Spain.


MY REVIEW:

The thrill and excitement is magnified by hearing THE POSTCARD KILLERS read with three different readers-Katherine Kellgren, Erik Singer, and Reg Rogers. Liza Marklund, notably the #1 bestselling author in Europe, has joined forces with James Patterson (need I say more?) to co-author this summer’s highly anticipated thriller. THE POSTCARD KILLERS, I have to say it was well worth the wait, as these two authors put together a fast paced, well-written chase through Europe filled with intriguing characters and alluring locales. The excellent who-done-it is filled with twists and turns, and the requisite dose of violence, sex, and summer reading fun! Hearing it on an audio book seems to make the dizzying pace of this one fly by even faster!

The plot revolves around a serial killing couple who is viciously murdering couples while they are vacationing in Europe. When they finish, they send picture postcards representing the murders to the local newspapers. These murders take place in major tourist areas like Rome, Paris, Madrid, and Stockholm, and from the start, readers know that the couple is Sylvia and Mac Randolph. Evidently, with the notification of the murders to the media, the Randolphs want the publicity and they are quickly dubbed “The Postcard Killers”.

With NYPD detective Jacob Kanon’s daughter being one of the first of the murdered couples while in Rome with her boyfriend, it isn’t surprising that he becomes the obsessed and dedicated cop determined to catch these monsters. The couple is responsible for bringing to Kanon’s attention a Swedish reporter, Dessie Larsson, when they send a postcard to her in Stockholm indicating someone is going to die there next.

Being now involved in this case, Dessie unwillingly finds herself drawn towards Detective Kanon and between the two of them they figure out that the Randolphs are the murderers. Readers follow this team as they are led back and forth across the world, until the story ends with readers feeling as if they were physically along for this wild ride. With what I believe to be a perfect pairing, Patterson and Marklund will hopefully work together again since they sent readers a fabulous summer sizzler in THE POSTCARD KILLERS.

First I love Patterson and haven't read this book yet. Second, having multiple readers would make this Audiobook similar to listening to an oldtime radio drama.

I just love a good Patterson book. He can really put a spin on a plot. The characters are fabulously written. Postcard Killers is at the top of my wish list.
