POSTPONED: Adrian McKinty, The Chain

*This event has been postponed -- please check back for updates on a rescheduled date!*

“You have never read anything quite like THE CHAIN and you will never be able to forget it. This book is Jaws for parents. It belongs in the elite company of world class thrillers like Gone Girl and The Silence of the Lambs.”--Don Winslow

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

 The Chain is the chilling thriller of the summer, called "unmissable" by Kirkus Reviews.

Imagine that you've just dropped your child at the bus stop. A panicked stranger calls your phone to tell you that your child has been kidnapped. The stranger then explains that their child has also been kidnapped, but by a completely different stranger.

The only way to get your child back is to kidnap another child.

Your child will be released only when the next victim’s parents kidnap yet another child. And most important, the stranger explains: If you don’t kidnap a child, or if the next parents don’t kidnap a child, your child will be murdered.

You are now part of The Chain.
