'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 humour - should be savoured.'
TANA FRENCH

'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

'A grade-A-first-rate-edge-of-your-seat thriller. I can't believe what went through my mind while reading it.'
ATTICA LOCKE

'Brutally compelling. Like Harlan Coben in a bad mood.'
MASON CROSS

'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

'Wow! What a ride! Whip fast, intelligent and thought-provoking. One of the best thrillers of the year.'
ADAM HAMDY

'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

'Brilliant. Beautifully written. 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

'Pairing an irresistible concept with a winner protagonist, THE CHAIN promises to be your new addiction once you succumb to the first enticing page.'
