New York Times bestselling author of The Cartel and - Don Winslow
“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. The Chain scared the hell out of me but I could not put it down! I raced to the end of the book and then went back to see how Adrian McKinty pulled it all off. 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.”
Author of Into the Black Nowhere - Meg Gardiner
“Diabolically gripping. Adrian McKinty has written a novel that’s nail-biting, smart, and convincing, with a plot-jolting twist that readers of Gone Girl will love. Hang on tight, because once you start this book, you can’t stop—like the characters in the story, you’ll be caught in The Chain.”
New York Times bestselling author of The Better Sister and The Wife - Alafair Burke
“Rachel Knight’s daughter has been abducted, and the only way Rachel can save her is to add another kidnapped child to the terrifying chain. Pairing an irresistible concept with a winner protagonist, The Chain promises to be your new addiction once you succumb to the first enticing page.”
Author of the Edgard Award-winning Bluebird, Bluebird - Attica Locke
"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."
Author of Thirteen - Steve Cavanagh
"A masterpiece. One of the finest novels ever produced in the genre. This is up there with Marathon Man and The Silence of the Lambs. It just doesn't get any better than this."
New York Times bestselling author of The Witch Elm and The Trespasser - Tana French
“Adrian 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.”
Author of November Road - Lou Berney
“Adrian McKinty’s The Chain is the rare thriller that’s not only fiendishly clever but also powerfully empathetic, with both hair-raising twists and complex, fully-realized characters.”
New York Times bestselling author of Mystic River and Since We Fell - Dennis Lehane
“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.”
Author of The Killing Habit - Mark Billingham
"The Chain is a unique and unforgettable thriller. Breath-taking, breakneck, brilliant."
