Syd, a breathtakingly beautiful supermodel on a photo shoot in Hawaii, disappears. Fearing the worst, her parents travel to Hawaii to investigate for themselves, never expecting the horror that awaits them. LA Times reporter Ben Hawkins is conducting his own research into the case, hoping to help the victim and get an idea for his next bestseller. With no leads and no closer to uncovering the kidnapper's identity than when he stepped off the plane, Ben gets a shocking visit that pushes him into an impossible-to-resist deal with the devil. A heart-pounding story of fear and desire, Swimsuit transports listeners to a chilling new territory where the collision of beauty and murder transforms paradise into a hell of unspeakable horrors.
Good but gory
James Patterson once again does not disappoint in terms of action and keeping you wondering what will happen next. This book starts a little slow and gets confusing because of all the characters, but the more you get into it, the better it gets. The serial killer in this book is twisted - actually that's an understatement, but you'll get the idea. The story and the idea behind it is great, but the details of the murders get super gory. It caught me off guard. The bulk of my James Patterson reading/listening experience comes from the Women's Murder Club series where gore is not the norm. The ending was a bit hokey for my taste. Get ready for a good story, but prepare yourself for some explicit and stomach-churning details. (The narrator is very good by the way)
Good read, keeps you going on the edge of your seat, until the ending, which just left me totally disappointed.
falls apart at the end
good book, terrible ending
