You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation...

During a terrorist attack near the Western Wall in Jerusalem, a courageous mother sacrifices her life to save her four-year-old daughter, leaving behind a grieving husband and a motherless child.

Hana Abboud, a Christian Arab Israeli lawyer trained at Hebrew University, typically uses her language skills to represent international clients for an Atlanta law firm.  When her boss is contacted by Jakob Brodsky, a young Jewish lawyer pursuing a lawsuit on behalf of the woman's family under the US Anti-Terrorism laws, he calls on Hann's expertise to take point on the case.  After careful prayer, she joins forces with Jakob, and they quickly realize the need to bring in a third member for their team, an Arab investigator named David Hasan, based in Israel.

To unravel the case, this team of investigators travels from the street of Atlanta to the alleys of Jerusalem, a world where hidden motives thrive the risk of death is real, and the search for truth has many faces.  What they uncover will forever change their understanding of justice, heritage, and what it means to be chosen for a greater purpose.

My Thoughts;
I became a fast fan of Whitlow's while reading his books A Time to Stand and The Choice.  With Chosen People, he has solidified a prominent spot on my keeper shelf.  With mystery, a legal thrill ride, and deeply moving characters that draw you in from the beginning, Whitlow takes readers on a journey of international intrigue with more twists and turns and unanticipated outcomes than you can keep up with.  Whitlow's writing is engaging and full of tension that is palpable to the reader.  His plot is well-developed and his characters are gritty.  He also expertly and vividly paints a picture of the people and places in Chosen People with cultural accuracy.

If John Grisham is the plumbline for legal fiction, then Whitlow has just established a new one with his latest novel.  Relevant and timely, Chosen People by Whitlow is one book you do not want to miss.
