Description

They had not been forgiven. And they would never be forgotten....

On a hot summer’s morning, a young father is found murdered in a cornfield outside the quiet town of Colton, tied to a post, arms spread wide. Detective Robyn Carter is reminded of the crucifixion, and she knows she’s looking for a killer with a twisted sense of right and wrong.  

The victim’s girlfriend is devastated, unable to fathom how she will tell her sick little boy. Still reeling from her own loss, Robyn vows she will find the killer - no matter what.  

But then a local doctor - a popular woman with a young family of her own - is found dead outside her surgery. There are similarities between the first body and hers, and Robyn must take another look at the picture-postcard town, where no one has any enemies.  

Can Robyn untangle the hidden web of secrets, lies, and smouldering grudges at the heart of this close-knit community before another life is lost?  

A pause-resisting thriller that will keep you listening into the night. If you love Angela Marsons, James Patterson, or Tess Gerritsen, The Chosen Ones will have you hooked.

Completely hooked

I truly enjoyed reading this series. I ate up every last bit of each book. I didn’t want it to end, and was glad to have the epilogue. I am hooked on her stories and most certainly on Emma Newman’s performance. She is wonderful with her many distinctive accents. I can’t wait to read more in the series.

Sloppy, Sloppy, Sloppy

This novel starts out strong but the ending is clunky, anti-climactic, and just plain silly. Robyn refers to the murderer as having become “careless and sloppy” toward the end. I think the author is projecting.

Notes on general continuity issues for the author, editor, publisher, audiobook producer, and narrator. (Spoilerish)

(1) Robyn refers to the cat, Schrodinger, as having belonged to “a retired widow who had been murdered”. WRONG! Schrodinger was Tessa’s cat, Tessa the young, vibrant, single woman FROM JUST THE PREVIOUS NOVEL!!! Seriously? Does anyone read these books before they’re published? Does the author not keep an index of all her characters? Please don’t treat your readers like we’re stupid. We should not know more about the characters’ history than you do!

(2) The aunt has a Barbadian accent so why doesn’t her sister??? Hmmmm?

(3) Let’s talk about the aunt’s voice. Not only does she have this lilting, Barbadian accent but it’s like the voice of the narrator at the beginning of a Disney movie reading the prologue to a fairytale. That was an odd choice.

(4) How could the aunt have been so unaware of how the children were being treated? And how could they have missed school for days and/or weeks on end without any school official raising the alarm? Is this supposed to be one of those “suspension of disbelief” scenarios?

(5) And last but not least, we hear the memories of a character who is long since dead well before the novel begins. That’s bizarre. You couldn’t even come up with a diary entry or something akin to that? That’s lazy writing.

Where are the editors?

That is all.
