Chain of Events

by Fredrik T. Olsson

Chain of Events Synopsis

Every second could be our last unless one man can rewrite our future... DAY ONE: KIDNAP 'We've been looking for you,' they tell William Sandberg when they abduct him. Imprisoned at a secret location, this broken genius can only win his freedom by completing an impossible task. DAY TWO: OUTBREAK Out on the streets, people begin to die horrible, gruesome deaths. Every moment that William fails to complete his task, more will perish. DAY THREE: CHAOS The search is on to rescue William as catastrophe after catastrophe kills thousands. But soon William realises the answer to the puzzle might be the most terrifying secret of all.

Chain of Events Press Reviews

Don't wait for the film, read it now - before it's too late! (5 stars) * Weekend Sport * Swedish scriptwriter Olsson's first novel amps up the action via a doomsday scenario set in Europe . . . Olsson lines up a sympathetic and well-developed cast of characters, inserts them into some interesting places, and allows very few dull moments, especially once the action really gets rolling. An end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it thriller featuring two unlikely, but very likable, protagonists. * Kirkus * Exhilerating. Utterly exhausting. Totally addictive. Unbelievably clever and if you want your thrillers to be, well you know, actually thrilling, you have come to the right place. * Liz Loves Books * Olsson's debut, a world-in-peril thriller, gets high marks for developing an original concept and building suspense * Publishers Weekly * Each page is action-packed, filled with enough detail and thrill to wind you up so much the anticipation could set you off like a top . . . I loved this book. * * The tension never lets up as the stakes get higher and higher in this fast-paced thriller. Chain of Events is an exciting and entertaining read and an impressive debut novel for Swedish screenwriter Fredrik T Olsson * Izzy Reads * I loved it absolutely and with passion - I wish I could start all over again now with no knowledge, yet another reminder for me of why I read * Liz Loves Books * Thrilling action sequences... compulsive reading * Lincolnshire Echo * 'Chain of Events' has a conceit at its heart that is so simple and clever I wish I'd thought of it. If you like your clocks ticking and your end of the world nighing and your pace fast and relentless, all shot through with a little bloody pandemic and code cracking, then boy are you ever going to love this book. I did. * Simon Toyne * A colourful blockbuster thriller couched in distinctly cinematic terms * The Independent * Secrets are unveiled with a masterful sense of pace . . . Olsson has the page-turning power of Michael Crichton * The Sun *

About Fredrik T. Olsson

He is also a standup comedian and makes occasional contributions as a director.
