VICTIM. SURVIVOR. ABDUCTOR. CRIMINAL. YOU WILL BECOME EACH ONE. "This nightmarish story is incredibly propulsive and original. You won't shake it for a long time." STEPHEN KING "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 "A masterpiece. You have never read anything quite like THE CHAIN and you will never be able to forget it." DON WINSLOW * * * * * 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 * * * * * "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's the real deal." DENNIS LEHANE "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 "A grade-A-first-rate-edge-of-your-seat thriller. I can't believe what went through my mind while reading it." ATTICA LOCKE "Diabolically gripping. Nail-biting, smart, and convincing. Hang on tight, because once you start this book, you can't stop - you'll be caught in THE CHAIN." MEG GARDINER "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." LOU BERNEY "YOU ARE NOT THE FIRST. AND YOU WILL CERTAINLY NOT BE THE LAST."… (mais)

3.5 stars. The first half of the book was a page turner but the second half slowed down. Still a good read. ( )

C-

Part one was great. Un-put-downable. Unfortunately it all sort of fell apart in part two. It’s not just that the twist was predictable. It’s not just that the characters became almost unrecognizable versions of their former selves. Or certain plot points that went unfathomably unaddressed. It was those things and the dozens of other things that all added up to a bust of a second half. It was like the two parts were written by two different people. A disappointing finish to a decent beginning. ( )

Bizarre, disturbing, and hard to continue. ( )

I have seen this book in heavy rotation at my library, and even one of my favorite authors gives a glowing review on the front cover. A popular book equals a long hold list, so when it became available for me to read, I was eager for the chance to finally read this. Unfortunately, my high hopes fell flat the more I read. ⁣
I give this book credit for a unique premise and a movie-fast pace, but for me the delivery fell flat. Some of the situations Rachel found herself in conveniently came together in the nick of time, quite unrealistically easily in fact, and I felt disbelief instead of the intended result, suspense. This rings true with the final climatic showdown between Rachel and the villains; many a deus ex machina to be had. I did enjoy the backstory of The Chain creators, because I was interested in who would dream up something like this and what their background is. When a certain character is introduced towards the final chapters, I instantly pegged them as the villain. ( )

This book's premise is very original and intriguing. I found myself flying through this. Great pacing, short chapters. All exciting action.

I would recommend this book for a vacation or flight as it is totally consumable in one sitting.

I was a little disappointed in who was behind the Chain. It felt a little too easy for me. But hey, you might not feel the same!

The ONLY thing that truly bothered me was the characters sometimes switching to U.K. dialogue or terms. I found myself wondering why an American would call a mile a kilometer, which ultimately pulled me from the book until I readjusted. Wasn't a big deal or anything but something I felt the author, editors, and publishers should have caught. ( )
