9780099514626: Swimsuit

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' 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 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.

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.

Review:

Crime Fiction maestro James Patterson’s immensely popular Alex Cross series was perhaps in need of a shot in the arm, as even his aficionados admitted. A new, non-Alex Cross series seemed to recharge the author’s batteries, with Lindsay Boxer, the sole woman homicide inspector in San Francisco, making a mark as a strong new Patterson protagonist. But the real reason for Patterson’s continuing ability to keep himself both inventive and productive has been his impressive marshalling of a cadre of co-writers with whom he works on keeping the army of Patterson admirers happy –by a jaw-dropping output. Swimsuit is the latest such portmanteau outing, with Maxine Paetro melding her own style invisibly with that of her better-known writing companion. The result is one of the most striking novels to bear the Patterson imprimatur.

A strikingly attractive swimsuit model, Kim McDaniels, goes missing at a photoshoot with the backdrop of an upscale hotel in Hawaii. Shortly after she vanishes, her distressed parents receive a shocking phone call – one that forces them to take the next available flight to Hawaii in a frantic effort to find their missing daughter. LA Times reporter Ben Hawkins is assigned to the case, and finds himself drawing on his experience as an ex-cop – particularly as the futile efforts of the local police are proving distinctly underwhelming. Ben may have his biggest scoop – but will it be at the expense of a young woman's life?

As always with James Patterson (solo or with co-author), the page-turning expertise is calculated to take the breath away – as is the narrative itself. Fasten your safety belts… --Barry Forshaw

Review:

"Patterson's annual thriller is another exceptional treat" ( Mirror)

"Billed as one of his scariest yet. It terrified me rigid - but there was no way in a million years I could put it down ... utterly compulsive" ( Daily Express)

"The thriller genre's leading goal scorer ... Pulp fiction at its most moreish" ( Shortlist)

"Another edge-of-your-seat thriller from James Patterson" ( Asda Magazine)

"His usual brilliant blend of pace and intrigue" ( Mirror)
