Detective Jacob Kanon is in Europe for one purpose...to find the killer of his beloved daughter, Kimmy. Her death is eating him alive; he must find the evil people who are slashing the throats of young couples who are enjoying vacation time in Paris, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, and Stockholm.
Postcards are being sent to the local newspapers preceding each new death. Kanon meets Swedish reporter, Dessie Larsson, who has just received a postcard in Stockholm, and teams up with her, not knowing that he and Dessie will become attracted to each other.
As Jacob and Dessie start putting clues together and relentlessly pursuing the killers, I was completely drawn in by Patterson's vivid writing. This novel kept me interested from start to finish; it was never boring. It also had some very sexy moments, I might add!!
Definitely 5 stars*****
