The Chain - Adrian McKinty || Netgalley review

You just dropped off your child at the bus stop. A panicked stranger calls your phone. Your child has been kidnapped, and the stranger explains that their child has also been kidnapped, by a completely different stranger. The only way to get your child back is to kidnap another child within 24 hours. Your child will be released only when the next victim's parents kidnap yet another child, and most importantly, the stranger explains, if you don't kidnap a child, or if the next parents don't kidnap a child, your child will be murdered. You are now part of The Chain.


Oh my god, i read this is one go. This book was as good as i thought it would be. It literally takes off running and doesnt stop until the very end. It is such as as a fast paced thriller that doesnt for one minute slow down.

Rachel hasnt had the best time, she has had her fair share of battles, and today is she on the way to the doctors for another check up, however on the way she receives a phone call. Her daughter has been kidnapped, she isnt the first, nor will she be the last - but she is now in the chain. The solution to the chain? Just do what they ask and keep the chain going. The only way to get out - is kidnap another child. 

How horribly horrific is this concept, however it is also such a different concept for a book and i have read another like it. It really is important in a book like this that the characters are the right sort of people, that make this believable. It means that you understand that these sort of characters would behave like this, that been said. It was done so well that this was the case.

The chain made Rachel have to tackle something so horrific that as a reader you couldnt even comprehend, throw in trying to keep everything normal and the desperate need to get out of the chain and you have a thriller that chills you to the core. An absolutely fantastic read.
