Product description

Review

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 Mystic River and 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, bestselling author of The Better Sister and The Wife 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, NY Times bestselling author of The Witch Elm and The Tresspasser A masterpiece. The Chain is one of the finest novels ever produced in the genre - up there with Marathon Man and Red Dragon. It just doesn't get any better than this. I may not read a better thriller in my lifetime -- Steve Cavanagh, author of smash-hit Thirteen You have never read anything quite like The Chain and you will never be able to forget it. Brilliant. Beautifully written. A masterpiece of tension. It scared the hell out of me but I could not put it down! The Chain belongs in the elite company of world-class thrillers like Gone Girl and The Silence of the Lambs. This is nothing short of Jaws for parents -- Don Winslow Utterly brilliant * Elly Griffiths * Diabolical, unnerving, relentless * Dennis Lehane * THE CHAIN does for parenting what GONE GIRL did for marriage. A must-read thriller * James Swallow * Terrifying. Terrific * Mick Herron * What a fantastic idea and perfectly written. I'm quite jealous * Anthony Horowitz * An electrifying thriller - one of the very best of its kind * Fiona Cummins * I may not read a better thriller in my lifetime * Steve Cavanagh * Explosively brilliant. Genuinely unputdownable. Terribly plausible * Observer * Striking, memorable, should be savoured * Tana French * A unique and unforgettable thriller. Breath-taking, breakneck, brilliant * Mark Billingham * A masterpiece. You will never be able to forget it * Don Winslow * Incredibly propulsive and original. You won't shake it for a long time * Stephen King * I writhed with the pain of withdrawal when I finished it. Deserves to be the popular hit of the year * Daily Telegraph * You'll miss meals, sleep, and your stop on the bus - guaranteed * Val McDermid * Scary, plausible, gripping * Ian Rankin * A blazing, full-tilt thriller that entirely justifies the hype * Guardian * The book everyone is talking about * Mirror * A heart-stopping roller coaster * Daily Mail *
