Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Chosen Ones by Howard Linskey. 

Eva Dunbar wakes in a large metal box. She has no idea who has taken her. She has no way out....

Eva isn't the first young woman to disappear. Detective Ian Bradshaw, heading up the search, has no leads - and precious little time.

When at last a body is found, the police hope the tragic discovery might at least provide a clue that will help them finally find the kidnapper.

But then they identify the body - and realise the case is more twisted than they ever imagined....

Decent story, great narration

I didn't realize this was a part of a series. I still probably would have grabbed this even if I did just because most crime and/or police procedural are acceptable to jump in wherever. I feel like missed some things in this book. I should have started at book 1. That's my fault. However, the story-line was pretty good. I love a good mystery.

I loved the narrator. Kieran Bew. There was a bit of a British accent, I think anyway. I enjoy the accents immensely! I think I'm going to check out other books narrated by Bew.

Love this series

I've been through all the books in this series and this was the best so far. It's definitely different than most of the other crime fiction books out there. I never know what to say in a review without spoiling the whole book. I do think British narrators are always a plus. I'm very picky with books I rate and it has to pretty good for me to write anything in a review. Trust me it's worth the credit

So far left it was almost propaganda!

Could have been a decent book of the author want trying to shove her extremely leftist views in at every possible chance. Painful!

great story line.

I did not enjoy listening to the narrator, it sounded to me as if he didn't put enough of emotion into the story.
