Not as good as I had hoped.

another kinky/deranged serial killer!

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.

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.

A swimsuit model mysteriously disappearing, leaving no trace of herself behind. Shortly after she goes missing, her parents receive a chilling call late at night from someone telling them that bad things have happened to her. After receiving the call they immediately book a flight to Hawaii - were the photo shoot was taking place - and with the help of ex-cop turned writer for the LA Times Ben Hawkins, they begin to search for her, hoping that the worst wont come while surmising that it has.

I did enjoy this book for the most part. It was a fast reader, kept me interested throughout and the violence didn't really bother me. However, this book has no ending!!! Talk about frustrating. I kept thumbing through the last 20 pages after I was done, thinking I had missed some chapters. What a poor way to finish this otherwise entertaining book. I really feel like I read 3/4 of a book and then got to a page that said "The End". Maybe James and his co-authors should get together.

Swimsuit is another her fast paced novel by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro.

A good quick read with a plot which we only can hope has not and does not happen.
