VITTIMA. RAPITORE. CRIMINALE.
COSA SEI DISPOSTO A FARE PER SALVARE LE PERSONE CHE AMI?
Mi chiamo Rachel Klein e fino a pochi minuti fa ero una madre qualunque, una donna qualunque. Ma adesso sono una vittima. Una criminale. Una rapitrice.
È bastato un attimo: una telefonata, un numero occultato, poche parole. Abbiamo rapito tua figlia Kylie. Segui le istruzioni. E non spezzare la Catena, oppure tua figlia morirà.
La voce di questa donna che non conosco mi dice che Kylie è sulla sua macchina, legata e imbavagliata, e per riaverla non sarà sufficiente pagare un riscatto. Non è così che funziona la Catena. Devo anche trovare un altro bambino da rapire. Come ha fatto lei, la donna con cui sto parlando: una madre disperata, come me. Ha rapito Kylie per salvare suo figlio. E se io non obbedisco agli ordini, suo figlio morirà.
Ho solo ventiquattro ore di tempo per fare l’impensabile. Per fare a qualcun altro ciò che è stato fatto a me: togliermi il bene più prezioso, farmi precipitare in un abisso di angoscia, un labirinto di terrore da cui uscirò soltanto compiendo qualcosa di efferato.
Io non sono così, non ho mai fatto niente di male nella mia vita. Ma non ho scelta. Se voglio salvare Kylie, devo perdere me stessa.

My feelings are all over the place with this one. Loved it in the beginning, but I wasn’t a fan by the end. The Chain has a fascinating premise and is told in two parts. Part one begins with a bang: When Rachel, a single mom who has fought her fair share of battles, learns her daughter has been
Adrian McKinty has never written a book I have not loved, and this intense, dark psychological thriller is just brilliant with its killer and diabolical premise of the chain. 35 year old Rachel Klein is a divorced single mother, with 13 year old daughter, Kylie, living on Plum Island, Massachusetts.

(2.5) Good idea, meh execution. The last third was kind of pointless, didn't care anymore.

Unfortunately, for Rachel, she is very wrong. Prior to making it to her appointment, she gets a chilling p Leggi tutto
Coercion This book needs a seat belt because it blasts off at some serious speed. The opening chapters are shocking and the principle of The Chain is completely unique and deeply unsettling. Rachel Klein is a divorced single mother, with a 13-year-old daughter, Kylie. She has just been appointed to a Leggi tutto

It wasn't my favorite. I have mixed feelings because I tried to love it but hated the way Rachel went from being a meek mom to a pistol-whipping badass in a few chapters. I guess kidnap will do that. That said, the concept is brilliant. I mean, BRILLIANT, and the ending was very satisfying. The breast Leggi tutto
