Book Review: Swimsuit by James Patterson

As stated in an earlier post, I am and always have been, a fan of James Patterson. I have always found his talent level to be consistent and really enjoy reading his books. His newest novel, SWIMSUIT (co-authored with Maxine Paetro) held up to my expectations.

Here is the book description from the Hachette Book Group website:

"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 readers to a chilling new territory where the collision of beauty and murder transforms paradise into a hell of unspeakable horrors."

In SWIMSUIT, we are told right away who the killer is. In this book, what we are reading to find out is why he did it and will he get caught. As always with James Patterson's novels the book is a fast-paced, page-turner! If you have not yet discovered Patterson, then this is a good book to start with as it is a stand-alone novel, not part of any of his previous series.

Look for it on June 29, 2009! You will not be disappointed!
