Adrian McKinty Press Reviews

The Chain is diabolical, unnerving, and gives a whole new meaning to the word 'relentless.' McKinty just leapt to the top of my list of must-read suspense novelists. He writes with confidence, heart, and style to spare. He's the real deal -- Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River and Since We Fell

Pairing an irresistible concept with a winner protagonist, The Chain promises to be your new addiction once you succumb to the first enticing page. -- Alafair Burke, bestselling author of The Better Sister and The Wife

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 -- Tana French, NY Times bestselling author of The Witch Elm and The Tresspasser

A masterpiece. The Chain is one of the finest novels ever produced in the genre - up there with Marathon Man and Red Dragon. It just doesn't get any better than this. I may not read a better thriller in my lifetime -- Steve Cavanagh, author of smash-hit Thirteen

You have never read anything quite like The Chain and you will never be able to forget it. Brilliant. Beautifully written. A masterpiece of tension. 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

Utterly brilliant - Elly Griffiths

Diabolical, unnerving, relentless - Dennis Lehane

THE CHAIN does for parenting what GONE GIRL did for marriage. A must-read thriller - James Swallow

A unique and unforgettable thriller. Breath-taking, breakneck, brilliant - Mark Billingham

A masterpiece. You will never be able to forget it - Don Winslow

Incredibly propulsive and original. You won't shake it for a long time - Stephen King

I writhed with the pain of withdrawal when I finished it. Deserves to be the popular hit of the year - Daily Telegraph

You'll miss meals, sleep, and your stop on the bus - guaranteed - Val McDermid

Scary, plausible, gripping - Ian Rankin
