"The Chain is a grade-A-first-rate-edge-of-your-seat thriller. I can't believe what went through my mind while reading it--the things I might be willing to do to save my child."--Attica Locke, author of the Edgar Award-winning Bluebird, Bluebird

"The Chain does for parenting what Gone Girl did for marriage; a breakneck narrative and a chilling concept make this a must-read thriller."--James Swallow, author of Exile

"The Chain has all the hallmarks of a monster hit, including a terrifying premise that had me wondering: Is this actually happening somewhere right now? And I bet I won't be the only one. Terrific."--Mark Billingham, author of The Killing Habit

"The Chain is a straight-up, stone-faced thriller, a present-tense race...thunderous ride into the darkest, most fearful reaches of a parent's mind")--Paddy Hirsch, NPR

"The Chain is diabolical, unnerving, and gives a whole new meaning to the word 'relentless.' Adrian 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, New York Times bestselling author of Mystic River and Since We Fell

"The Chain is that rare thriller which ends up being highly personal. ..a satisfying and deeply rewarding read."--Tod Goldberg, USA Today

"The Chain turns out to be awfully hard to put down."--Connie Ogle, Newsday

"A chilling, diabolical page-turner you'll want to savor."--People Magazine, Book of the Week

"A deeply unsettling story about the limits of morality, raising questions about the nature of good and evil and the depths of parental love."--Joumana Khatib, New York Times --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Book Description

A high concept thriller masterpiece by a world class writer: it doesn't get any better than THE CHAIN. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
