Celebrate ThrillerFest with an Audiobook giveaway of Swimsuit by James Patterson




Thanks to Anna at Hatchette Books Group, we're having a giveaway of Swimsuit by James Patterson. Thanks so much, Anna and Hatchette for your generosity!

About the Book, courtesy of the author's website:

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 L.A. 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.

  5. Audio books are great for me since I never seem to have time to sit down and actually read :-) I'm a big fan of Ian Rankin's Inspector Rebus, a great series.

  7. Favourite fictional detective was always Nancy Drew when I was a kid. Now, I like Kay Scarpetta who is actually a medical examiner but she is solving crimes so I think it should fit...

  10. I have to admit to not reading many detective novels I used to love Tony Hillerman though. I am curious about James Patterson though because of the Womans Murder Mystery series.

  11. Wow - you have been doing so many giveaways lately! You really got into the blog thing fast - I am still slowly moving along - I may have to change my template page as some things don't display as I like them to in the sidebar - enter them and then remove them -- frustrating.

    I just nominated you for the Humane Award - stop on by to pick it up.

  40. I love the detective novels by the British author Elizabeth George starring Detective Constable Barbara Havers and Supt. Thomas Lynley. They're exciting, suspenseful, and scary but also funny and a little bit poignant. I highly recommend them!
