Written By: Maxine Paetro, James Patterson

Narrated By: Christian Rummel

Date: June 2009

Duration: 7 hours 0 minutes


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.

    I cannot believe how this book ends. I don't want to spoil it, but it'd be about equivalent to finishing Silence of the Lambs with the serial murderer, he slipping on a banana peel and dying. The End It felt like he had to get the book out to meet a deadline so Patterson just vomited on the last chapter of the book and sent it in to the editors.

    I could not finish this because it was too violent for me. I am sure it was written well, but I just did not want to hear all of the violent details.

    I have to agree with the other reviews. I normally like James Paterson books, but this one was disturbingly violent. It tries to help you understand the mind of a sociopath, but that's not where I want my mind to go. There's too much of this gratuitous violence out there. No need for more of it. I would not recommend this book.

    Didn't last through one CD. I am considering never reading/listening to another Patterson book. Why would anyone write a book like this? Graphic violence just for the sake of it? Don't put it on your list. That's my advice.

    Gory and perhaps a bit too many shock-jock sort of details but a good story otherwise. Many of the scene details left a pit in my stomach. I guess that is the

    I am a long standing Patterson fan but I was surprised by how violent and graphic this one was. I also found the ending somewhat anti-climatic. It still has an interesting and fresh plot, a sadistic and engaging killer and overall great action. Be warned, the violence and death scenes are grisly, there were several times when I was tempted to fast forward through them.

  • Petaluma Reader

    I usually love Patterson, but this book (maybe because it was oral) was just too violently graphic for my taste. I stopped about two hours into the CD.
