YOU WILL BECOME EACH ONE.
"This nightmarish story is incredibly propulsive and original. You won't shake it for a long time."
"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."
"A masterpiece. You have never read anything quite like THE CHAIN and you will never be able to forget it."

"Pairing an irresistible concept with a winner protagonist, THE CHAIN promises to be your new addiction once you succumb to the first enticing page."
"A grade-A-first-rate-edge-of-your-seat thriller. I can't believe what went through my mind while reading it."
"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."
"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."
"YOU ARE NOT THE FIRST.
AND YOU WILL CERTAINLY NOT BE THE LAST."
