There's nothing like a good thriller ...,
This review is from: Postcard Killers (Paperback)
and this is nothing like a good thriller. I bought this to read on holiday and regretted it from almost the first chapter. The front cover exclaims "The most terrifying holiday thriller you'll ever read". Honestly, what nonsense they write on covers! This seems like a cynical attempt to cash in on the recent vogue for scandinavian detective fiction and reads like a formulaic tome dictated on auto-pilot. The story was boring and contrived and it read as if the writers were bored writing it. Looking at now many books James Patterson churns (seems the correct word here) out I am not surprised. How can one maintain any sort of enthusiasm with this level of output. I shall be avoiding any of his books in future.

Well, thank you for your polite comment to my scathing review. I am afraid I have to stand by my review however. I can recommend the Wallander series, Jo Nesbo's books, the McCall Smith No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency and almost any other detective series, even the Dan Brown books (maybe Digital Fortress excepted). But this did just bore me and it was only my Asperger's-like mania for completeness that made me finish it.
