    One thought on “The Chosen”

    1. Like just about every other Sharon Sala/Dinah McCall book I've read, this was a good readbut I wouldn't call it one of my favorites by her. It was a quick, enjoyable (if creepy) book, but it wasn't one that captured me. Reporter January DeLena is always looking for an interesting story. So when she hears about a homeless man calling himself the Sinner who is claiming to have had a near-death experience where he didn't go to heaven, but to hell, she's intrigued. As she investigates, she becomes c [...]

    2. Great thriller that keeps you wanting to know more. A twisted man that chooses homelessness to live as Jesus did. He's ill literally and figuratively. Can Reporter January DeLena and Detective Benjamin North find the elusive Sinner and is the homeless street preacher responsible for all the missing homeless men. January and Ben are in opposing trades. Reporters and Law Enforcement are normally like oil and water. They both know they want to cross that line. January has been looking for the Sinne [...]

    3. January was after a story and she got much more. This ersatz reporter was following up on an interest in after-life experiences and fell smack dab into a twisted plot hatched by a criminal with a brain tumor. This criminal, in order to escape Hell, was kidnapping homeless people with names of Christ's disciples, trying to 'live as he did' and for those of us who have an understanding of Christian works, doing just the opposite. The journalist provides critical leads to the homicide detectives an [...]

    4. Warning to those who think this is a cop and bad guy, manhunt, not so much mystery but suspense book, it's a romance novel set to a cop and bad guy, manhunt, not so much mystery but little bit of suspense novel. As an avid mystery/suspense person I was a little let down with this book but as soon as I realized it's a love story I took it for what it was. If you're a big time suspense person and love things like Alex Cross novels, Ludlum and the likes, this will disspoint you as well. If you like [...]

    5. A man driven insane by terminal brain cancer decides he is Jesus, and that he must "live as He lived." Which, according to his interpretation, means collecting a following of people who have the same name as Jesus' disciples and other followers. So he kidnaps Simon Peters, Andrew, James, John, etc. along with Mother Mary Teresa, a nun. a TV reporter named January DeLena discovers that a number of people have gone missing, but she along with her boyfriend Ben North, can't track him down. It turns [...]

    6. A reporter and a cop - unlikely to become friends, much less lovers but they do. This happens while searching for a serial kidnapper/killer who is trying to walk in the shoes of Jesus. He was a bad person who had a tumor, he died and went to hell - not heaven. He was resuscitated but wasn't cured, they couldn't get all of it so he sets about to redeem himself in the eyes of God. Unfortunately, the tumor makes him rather crazy. Nice character study and psychological thriller.

    7. January DeLena is a journalist in Washington, DC. She is researching near-death experiences and learns of a man who calls himself the Sinner. Ben North is a homicide detective in DC. Of course their paths cross and when January realizes she has information that can help with a homicide case she contacts Ben.There is no real mystery in the story. We know who the villain is. Still, we get some suspense and romance and I enjoyed the story.

    8. Really slow and tedious. Unnecessary scenes that add nothing to the story or the characters. Jumping focus from one person to another too often. And that's just chapter one.I really don't like female-reporter stories, so I dunno why I bothered trying this one.

    9. This book was very good and a quick easy read. The suspense kept you going with a bizarre outcome. Mixed with a hot little romance. Most definitely a page turner that you can't put down. Surprised I enjoyed so much since this is not a typical kind of book I read alot.

    10. Another great romantic suspense story by Sharon Sala. She is one of my favorite authors. She never disappoints. Interesting suspense story that involves homeless men who go missing.

    11. Not something I would typically read - I picked up the wrong book. A cheesy romance but a quick entertaining read that requires no brain work.

    12. This one was a bit strange - but serial killers are strange Very sad to think about the homeless Not her best - but still very good!

    13. I enjoyed this book. January was interesting and brave. There was so much going on that I didn't get bored. My only complaint was that he called her 'honey' too early and too much.

    14. This book was pretty good. Since I'm not really religious, I didn't understand most of what was going on, but still overall an amazing book!

    15. It's amazing that the author could take something so ugly and horrific and transmute it into something beautiful!

    16. Romance part was a bit teenager~ish. The repetition of how the main characterrepeatedly answered her phone absentmindedly was kind of annoying. the author needs to change things up a bit.

    17. I loved this thriller I could NOT put it down I had to find out how it ended. Ms. Sala is a great author and can really write books I am on to another one of hers!

    18. I just read a James Patterson book before this and really didn't enjoy it as much as I enjoyed this book by an author I never heard of. Great suspense and I couldn't put it down!

    19. OK book, interesting mystery, thriller story line with some romance thrown in. Does it always take facing death to walk in Jesus's shoes?
