Synopsis & Book Info:
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.

Ever read or listen to a book that you found yourself rooting for the bad guys? Well, that's what happened to me with this audiobook. I really enjoyed the killers, and found their characters to be fresh and exciting!
Sylvia is one cool chick! She does have a real problem with authority and takes care of herself in ways no others would think of, like murder.
Jacob, the cop character, he really didn't stand out for me. In his case, it was just another cop to me.
The only thing I didn't care for was the background music and ambiance. It's supposed to add depth and emotion to the scene, but I found it more distracting than anything.
I definitely want to read a print copy, just to get a better appreciation for the story, and who knows, maybe I'll end up liking Jacob more.
Recommend? Yes, but get a print copy!
