Swimsuit by James Patterson ...Audio Book .......Giveaway!.......

Swimsuit by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro
It's to Die For....
And It's An Audio Book Giveaway!

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.....

The beach will never be the same for you again...
A Breathtakingly beautiful supermodel disappears from a swimsuit photo shoot at the most glamorous hotel in Hawaii. Only hours after she goes missing, Kim McDaniel's parents receive a terrifying phone call...

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 Daniels to have a prayer. And Ben to have the story of his life...

All the while, the killer sets the stage for his next production...

This audio book has it all! A great story AND a great narrator! The story grabbed me from the start, but the narrator really brought the story alive for me! Christian Rummel narrates Swimsuit and has a good voice, good timing and really reads the book with feeling! I really enjoyed listening to Christian reading it. I listened intently as the story got more and more intense. This audio book is also unabridged! Which is a BIG plus! With 6 CD's we get the WHOLE story, not an edited one! If you've never given an audio book a try start with this one! If you like audio books this will not disappoint you! Would you like to listen to an excerpt? Here's the LINK. Check out James Patterson's website HERE for more info on Swimsuit! And check out Hachette Audio Books for more great audio books HERE!

I heard you on the Kindle Chronicles podcast! Great interview and I HAD to find your blog and sign up for it. Regarding this give away:
Here's my e-mail: cm980706-bv@yahoo.com .
Yes, I listen to audiobooks quite frequently. I'm currently listening to "Big Russ and Me" by the late, GREAT Tim Russert. I MISS HIM! I find for some reason I like listening to nonfiction in the car during the car "part" of my daily commute, I read CPE course study material during the railway part of my daily commute and I read fiction at home in the evenings. I listen to podcasts on my Ipod during the work day (writers and readers talking about books and literature are my favorite; i.e. Kindle Chronicles!) and have my Kindle with me everywhere I go. You never know where you can find a few spare seconds to squeeze in some reading, nor will you know what you feel like reading. The Kindle provides all possible materials.
