The Chain (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

By McKinty, Adrian

Meet a new kind of evil... you. It's something parents do every morning: Rachel Klein drops her daughter at the bus stop and heads into her day. But a phone call from an unknown number changes everything. It's a woman on the line, informing her that she has her daughter bound and... gagged in her back seat, and the only way Rachel will see her again is to follow her instructions exactly: pay a ransom, and find another child to abduct. This is no ordinary kidnapping: the caller is a mother herself, whose son has been taken, and if Rachel doesn't do as she's told, the boy will die. Rachel is now part of The Chain, an unending and ingenious scheme that turns victims into criminals - and is making someone else very rich in the process. The rules are simple, the moral challenges impossible; find the money fast, find your victim, and then commit a horrible act you'd have thought yourself incapable of just 24 hours ago. The masterminds behind The Chain know that parents will do anything for their children. And kidnapping is only the beginning... A breakout novel to rival Girl on the Train and Woman in the Window from one of the world's best crime writers.
