Swimsuit by James Patterson (Audio Book)

Shockingly addicting…. from the very beginning I was captured with a story line that made my heart beat a little faster and I wanted to know… had to know, how it was all going to end.  ~  Sheila

A breathtakingly beautiful supermodel disappears from a swimsuit photo shoot at the most glamorous hotel in Hawaii. Only hours after she goes missing, Kim McDaniels’s parents receive a terrifying phone call. Fearing the worst, they board the first flight to Maui and begin the hunt for their daughter.

Ex-cop Ben Hawkins, now a reporter for the L.A. Times, gets the McDaniels assignment. The ineptitude of the local police force defies belief—Ben has to start his own investigation for Kim McDaniels to have a prayer. And for Ben to have the story of his life.

All the while, the killer sets the stage for his next production. His audience expects the best—and they won’t be disappointed. Swimsuit is a heart-pounding story of fear and desire, transporting you to a place where beauty and murder collide and unspeakable horrors are hidden within paradise.

My Thoughts

I am fairly new to audio books.  Over this past year as I have had much time in the car as I went here and there across out great state of Minnesota, I discovered that I really enjoyed listening to the books.

With Swimsuit by James Patterson I was really surprised how quickly the story line swept me in.  As I was listening to the early parts of the book, at the point that I was still deciding if this was a fit for me…. I was pleasantly shocked at the fast pace of this thriller…. moving with speed through the scenes that reflected in my mind.  There were a cople moments where I caught my breath, had I heard that right?

The opening story line of this audio with the Super Model Kim and her parents is good, very good.  Yet Jame’s Patterson’s Swimsuit is so much more.  It is a close up look into a killers mind.  What makes him tick and even as the book goes on all the pieces do not fall into place until the very end – as well written novels are capable of doing.

I ended up being very glad that I had this opportunity to listen to this book.  A good murder mystery for me are few and far between.  this one left me waiting for the next opportunity it take a drive so I could continue on with this captivating story.

  1. This sounds good! I have read several James Patterson books, but not this one.

    Not a fan of audio, but I could probably get into a murder mystery that is audio. Patterson doesn’t weave a lot of descriptors into his books, so the audio could be satisfying.

    (I like to visually indulge in books with lots of descriptors).

    I’ll have to check this one out.

  2. Oh this does sound good! I have never actually listened to an audio book before, I may have to try it. I bet it would help if you are always on the go and hardly ever have time to read. Great review 🙂

  3. I haven’t listened to an audio book yet, but I’m walking on my treadmill for the 100 Mile Challenge and plan on listening to Ravens, The Castaways and 50/50. I too would rather hold a book, but I get tired of watching tv or listening to music while walking everyday.

  5. SHEILA,




  6. Sounds like you liked this one way more than I did. Don’t get me wrong. I love Patterson. He’s my favorite author on audio. This just wasn’t my favorite book of his.
