Product description

Review

"Deliverance meets The Road Warrior in this harrowing survival thriller . . . McKinty is a master of suspense."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A pulsating, nerve-shredding thriller. I loved it!"
--
M. J. Arlidge, bestselling author of Eeny Meeny

"An exciting thriller that... pulls readers compulsively onward."--
Kirkus Reviews

"Expertly choreographed and breathlessly exciting . . . both the peril and the family are like no other.
The Chain was McKinty's breakthrough novel and this one could be every bit as big."--Booklist (starred review)

"Heart-stoppingly tense and unpredictable,
The Island twists a family vacation to a nightmarish breaking point. Adrian McKinty has written another irresistible and pulse-pounding thriller about the surprising places evil hides and just how far we'll go for those we love."
--
Karin Slaughter, New York Times bestselling author of Pieces of Her

"McKinty delivers another skillful, blade-sharp page-turner."
--
James Swallow, bestselling author of Nomad

"Wow, this book left me breathless and on the edge of my seat from the very first page--this is thriller writing of a high order. Gripping and unpredictable, prepare to be hooked and pumped full of adrenaline as McKinty deftly weaves a compulsively readable plot with characters that you are rooting for. No one does high- stakes tension like McKinty. Put
The Island at the top of your TBR--you won't regret it."
--
Sarah Pearse, New York Times bestselling author of The Sanatorium

Praise for the instant New York Times bestseller The Chain

"McKinty hangs on to his wit and literacy even under duress...Beneath its surface of high-speed thrills,
The Chain is clearly the work of the philosophical thinker McKinty has always been."--Janet Maslin, New York Times

"The pace quickens and the tension builds whenever the mother and daughter appear in a scene. In the end, what makes
The Chain so frightening - and why it works so well as a thriller - is that all of Rachel's actions remain completely relatable, even as she whipsaws between terror and determination, morphing from victim to perpetrator."--Tina Jordan, The New York Times

A chilling, diabolical page-turner you'll want to savor.--
People Magazine, Book of the Week

This is more than nail-biting; think cuticle-shredding.--
Bethanne Patrick, The Washington Post

This nightmarish story is incredibly propulsive and original. You won't shake it for a long time.--
Stephen King

Thrillers... don't get much more psychologically rich than
The Chain. --David Canfield, Entertainment Weekly

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. The Chain scared the hell out of me but I could not put it down! I raced to the end of the book and then went back to see how Adrian McKinty pulled it all off. 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, New York Times bestselling author of The Cartel and The Force --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
