What to expect

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Chosen Ones by Howard Linskey, read by Kieran Bew.

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...
