Here’s the summary of The Chain.
YOU WILL BECOME EACH ONE.
“This nightmarish story is incredibly propulsive and original. You won’t shake it for a long time.”
STEPHEN KING “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“A masterpiece. You have never read anything quite like THE CHAIN and you will never be able to forget it.”
