Product description

Review

"[A] feverish thriller...You can't put the thing down."

-- "Washington Post"

The Chain is a rocket ship, tremendous in pace and filled with suspense. It's a ride I won't soon forget.-- "Daniel Woodrell, author of Winter's Bone "

"Scary, plausible, gripping."

-- "Ian Rankin, New York Times bestselling author"

McKinty's novel is one of those twisty thrillers that will keep you on your feet until the end.-- " Palm Beach Post"

At once a commentary on social media, greed, revenge, love, and true evil, and written with an almost lyrical quality, this book will have readers searching for more McKinty titles to devour. An unmissable thriller.-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

"Not merely a well-told page-turning thriller, but a truly sophisticated bit of novel-writing."

-- "John Katzenbach, author of The Analyst"

"A Ponzi scheme from hell...A pitch-perfect psychological thriller...Expect the buzz to build quickly for this one--think The Woman in the Window for 2019."

-- "Booklist (starred review)"

"An original premise, relentless pacing, and strong female characters lift this nail-biter from Edgar winner McKinty... Readers won't be able to put this thriller down."

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

"Starting The Chain is like climbing aboard a runaway train. You'll miss meals, sleep, and your stop on the bus-- guaranteed."

-- "Val McDermid, author of Broken Ground"

A masterpiece...I may not read a better thriller in my lifetime.

-- "Steve Cavanagh, author of Thirteen"
