Adrian McKinty’s The Chain was my introduction to this author thanks to a Goodreads friend. And what a read it was!
Imagine arriving home one night to find your 12 year old child is not home as he/she should be. To no avail friends and neighbour’s are called as panic begins to set in and is exacerbated by a ransom call which not only demands money, but also to conduct a kidnapping of your own. Any form of law enforcement involvement will certainly be a death warrant for your child and perhaps family members. However as in all good stories there is always someone willing to break The Chain, or die trying.
The Chain is a fast paced novel which captured my interest on page one and held it until the final word. The Chain is a story of intrigue and mystery with several unforeseen twists. The Chain is the kind of book which would make one frightened to let their child walk anywhere by themselves.
I think The Chain is worthy of a star rating.
