This was a super interesting thriller! Rachel's daughter is kidnapped, and to get her back, she must not only pay a ransom, but kidnap another child.......then convince that child's parents to kidnap someone....and so on. The chain is unending......the book was a riveting, fast read I could barely put down.

Imagine receiving an early morning anonymous phone call telling you your only child has been kidnapped and if you want to see her again you must pay a ransom and kidnap another child and not break the chain. So begins this thrilling book by Adrian McKinty. I could not put it down. Follow Rachel as she becomes part of the chain and jumps into action to rescue her daughter but at what cost to her. Pick up this book and find out about The Chain and the dark web and the secrets Rachel uncovers along the way.

Awesome book. Loved the skill at pulling together the concept of the chain, and the ending when you find out the how & why is great. I read this book in less than 2 days, loved it,

IN reality, this is a pretty unbelievable scenario. But as a page turner, it rates pretty high. The unbelievable part is the children kidnapped never telling anyone what happened. There is no way that could happen. But I still enjoyed the story as a fantasy.

I was a huge fan of this book until the ending. It was engaging and pulled me in right away. Sadly the ending felt rushed and anti-climatic.

Could not finish this book. Writing is not great and the premise is also not great. Don't understand how it has made it to the bestseller lists. I did not even care to find out how it turned out as there are so many other good books to read.

Don't break The Chain. If you do, The Chain will come after you. You and your family will die. To keep the chain going and have your child safely returned, you must pay a ransom and kidnap someone else's child. Could you do it? This book has a unique plot that will keep you turning pages till the very end!

I liked this book quite a bit but the whole idea is really stupid. In this day and age everyone knows that even though kidnappers always say not to contact the police, if your kid is kidnapped of course you call them right away. Nevertheless I'm glad with how it turned out (although of course everyone would have been in jail lol).

This book is based off of a terrifying concept, kidnap a child so that yours can return home to you. I really do think this is believable in today's age. It had a good "big brother" feeling to it with the people running the chain. Unexpected ending.
