SWIMSUIT by Patterson/Paetro: A June Giveaway!

GIVEAWAY OVER!
WHAT A WAY TO
START THE MONTH
OF JUNE!

SWIMSUIT

by JAMES PATTERSON
& MAXINE PAETRO



ABOUT THE BOOK:

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.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

James Patterson published his first thriller in 1976 and since then has become one of the best-known and bestselling writers of all time, with more than 160 million copies of his books sold worldwide. He lives in Florida.

Maxine Paetro is a novelist and journalist. She lives with her husband in New York.


Thanks to Miriam and Hachette Book Group, I have 5 copies of the soon to be released summer blockbuster SWIMSUIT by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro.

Bingo said...

Welcome to all new and old followers and especially Searcher who I just posted. I am thrilled and amazed at how many people want James' new book...I'm almost finished and can tell why of course but I think I have as many comments on this as I do my 10 book Summer Beach Bag Giveaway! I have read every single one of his books and own just about all of them (only because at some point someone borrowed one and didn't return it) and just love his writing. Sometime I'd like to do a whole month about him and his books as some not in the series you may have not read are some of his best I think. Again thanks all and have a great Sunday evening and thanks for coming to BINGO'S!
