The Chain by Adrian McKinty


Your phone rings.

A stranger has kidnapped your child.

To free them you must abduct someone else’s child.

Your child will be released when your victim’s parents kidnap another child.

If any of these things don’t happen: your child will be killed.

You are now part of the chain.

Peer & Press Reviews

The Chain is diabolical, unnerving, and gives a whole new meaning to the word ‘relentless.’  McKinty just leapt to the top of my list of must-read suspense novelists.  He writes with confidence, heart, and style to spare.  He’s the real deal.

Dennis Lehane, author of Since We Fell

Pairing an irresistible concept with a winner protagonist, The Chain promises to be your new addiction once you succumb to the first enticing page.

Alafair Burke, author of The Better Sister

McKinty is one of the most striking and most memorable crime voices to emerge on the scene in years.  His plots tempt you to read at top speed, but don’t give in: this writing – sharply observant, intelligent and shot through with black humor – should be savored.

Tana French, author of The Wych Elm
