REVIEW: Swimsuit by James Patterson (audiobook)

Swimsuit by James Patterson

Synopsis

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.

My Thoughts

Wow! This audiobook can get shockingly brutal. It really took me by surprise.

I enjoyed this story, despite how descriptively brutal it could be. The storyline had lots of twists and turns, traversing continents, and a multitude of characters rolled up into one. I was not fond, however, of the narrator. I just have a dislike for men doing overly fake-feminine women's voices in narration. But overall I really enjoyed this audiobook!

(You know that my audiobook reviews are always short and sweet!)

I really hate when narrators do that too. In my last audio book it was a woman trying to make a gravelly man voice for the hero. It sounded so ridiculous that I never did like the guy!
