      The Chosen is set in the year 2017 in a suburb of western Cincinnati. A programmer named Sean Clarkson finds himself in a society of computer hackers who are wreaking havoc worldwide. The story begins with Seanís plane being jolted and thrown off course by an unknown ground computer. A few cyber criminals posing as utility workers kidnap a wealthy bankerís only son, a nine-year-old named Adam. The crooks force the bank president to open the bankís computer system, allowing them to wire money to hidden accounts. A computer virus that was meant to be a decoy suddenly spreads out of control.
