Publisher's Summary

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.

brilliant and gripping but the accents...........

the story is gripping and kept me guessing most of the way. the downside which was fairly considerable was the accents performed by the narrator. when speaking normally she was easy to listen to but as soon as she performed an accent I am presuming to have been black country/ brummie or a little later I think Jamaican it really grated. at the beginning i did not think I would complete the book but the story had to be heard. would have been so much better with out the accents!!!

Not the best of this series

This one is a bit repetitive in places and a lacks a bit a believability throughout with a crack detective team overlooking the killer right under the noses without even so much as a house search before it. Plot given away a bit early.

Great story

I really enjoy this series. I find the main character Robyn- a hopeless detective, as I solved the crime 1/2 way through- I’d definitely want Shearer on my case. I enjoy the team of characters and the feel. I do worry about her cat though as it’s time spent alone. I also get annoyed when at the start of the book it repeats Robyn’s past and backstory .

Jumping audio

Disappointed that the audio jumped on several occasions. Enjoyed the storyline, as I did with the books preceding.
