Book Review: Sharon Sala – The Chosen

Posted by HelenEdith on October 27, 2007

This book starts with a pimp who has a rather unpleasant near-death experience and comes to the deluded conclusion that not only does he need to clean his act up, but that he has to do it by living like Jesus did, which he attempts to do. The trouble is that his disciples are not very willing and so he abducts them and keeps them chained up in appalling conditions.

Journalist January DeLena gets involved because she’s interested in interviewing people who have had near-death experiences, and so she goes looking for the self-proclaimed Messiah.

As this is romantic suspense, there has to be some male interest, and he appears in the form of detective Benjamin North, who has no time for journalists, but for whom January has the hots.

Anyway, January sees the pattern of the disappearance of a series of homeless men with biblical names and gets seriously involved in a race to catch the “Messiah” when he is linked to the death of a prominent citizen who happens to have a biblical name.

I always find Sharon Sala’s books to be a good read, and this one was no exception.
