The beach... 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.
...will never be...
Ex-cop Ben Hawkins, now a reporter for the LA 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.
...the same for you again.
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.

This was just another hammy Patterson book. However, the ham factor in this one was ramped up 10 fold due the terrible narration. Tip for Christian: Dont act the book, just read it. And when reading a womans part, dont put on a cakey womans voice....who do you think you're reading to? A 6 year old!

This book drove me to distraction. A barely believable plot mixed with crude coincidences and an ending which left me wondering if the 7 hours could not have been better spent hanging by my thumbs!

The story started off well enough, but by the time it got to the ?twist? it had become very contrived and almost comic like. The recurring thought I had all the way through was ?what are the chances??..

The narration was punctuated by hundreds of unnecessary chapters often in the middle of the storyline. I?m not saying the narrator didn?t do a good job, he is after all only there to read what is in front of him, but there was no need for this interruption on top of the general frustration.

The ending was stunningly unremarkable and had me wondering if the author was as frustrated as I was and decided to finish as abruptly as possible and move on before his dinner got cold.

But what do I know? Lots of other reviewers will think this is a riveting listen and multiple awards will follow??? probably just me being a bit pedantic.

Worst ending

I enjoyed most of the book but the end left me flat. On the up side the narrator was excellent.
