              'You'll miss meals, sleep, and your stop on the bus - guaranteed.' Val McDermid VICTIM. KIDNAPPER. CRIMINAL. YOU WILL BECOME EACH ONE. The morning starts like any other. Rachel Klein drops her daughter, Kylie, at the bus stop and heads into her day. But then a phone call changes ...everything. A woman has Kylie bound and gagged in her back seat, and the only way Rachel will ever see her again is if she pays a ransom - and kidnaps another child. The caller is a mother herself, whose son has also been abducted, and if Rachel doesn't do exactly as she's told, both children will die. Rachel is now part of a terrifying scheme - The Chain. The rules are simple: find the money, find your victim, and then commit a horrible act you'd have thought yourself incapable of just 24 hours ago. Rachel is an ordinary woman, but over the coming days she will be pushed beyond ordinary limits to save her daughter. What the anonymous masterminds behind The Chain know is that parents will do anything for their children. But what they don't know is that they may have met their match. Can Rachel be the one person to finally break The Chain? PRAISE FOR THE CHAIN 'Scary, plausible, gripping.' Ian Rankin 'Explosively brilliant ... genuinely unputdownable ... McKinty's brilliance lies in exploring just how far a parent will go to rescue their child.' The Guardian Australia 'Nightmarish ... propulsive and original.' Stephen King 'Striking, memorable, should be savored.' Tana French 'McKinty delivers a heart-clutching thriller that mainlines parental nightmares. It's terrifying and traumatising in a way that shockingly violent fare just can't match.' Good Reading 'Told in a spare, punchy style, this is a blazing, full-tilt thriller that entirely justifies the hype. Read, and pass it on.' The Guardian UK 'This clever book moves McKinty - author of the dark, funny Sean Duffy books - into the blockbuster league of Harlan Coben and Linwood Barclay.' The Sun

              This Irish bad-boy thriller, set in the hardest streets of New York City, introduces us to Michael Forsythe, an illegal immigrant escaping from the Troubles in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Clever, fearless, and handy with a pistol, young Michael is just the fellow to be tapped by D...arkey, a New York crime boss, to join his gang of thugs fighting for their turf. But just as Michael is being anointed Darkey's rising star, he inadvisably seduces Darkey's girl. Suddenly the tables are turned, and Darkey plans a very hard fall for young Michael. But Darkey fails to account for Michael's toughness--or his determination to wreak vengeance upon those who betray him. A natural storyteller with a gift for dialogue, McKinty delivers us a stunning new noir voice, dark and stylish, mythic and violent--complete with an Irish lilt.

              'A spellbinder . . . takes hold before the first shot is fired' - New York Times 'Rarely does a tale about pursuers and pursued reach the intensity of fear, uncertainty and apprehension' - New York World-Telegram 'Of unusual interest and distinction . . . very moving . . . produc...es effects of high and painful excitement' - Spectator An Irish Republican Army plot goes horribly wrong when its leader, Johnny Murtah, kills an innocent man and is himself gravely wounded. As the police close in on Johnny, his compatriots must make a daring bid to rescue him. But they are not the only ones in pursuit: an impoverished artist, a saintly priest, a sleazy informer, and a beautiful young woman all have their own reasons to be desperate to find him. Meanwhile Johnny wanders the streets injured and alone, trapped in a delirious nightmare, surrounded on all sides by betrayal and faced with the realization that he may die that night with the stain of murder on his soul. As the action unfolds over eight hours of a cold Belfast night, the suspense builds towards an explosive conclusion. Both a critical success and a bestseller, F. L. Green's masterful thriller Odd Man Out (1945) is best known today as the basis for the classic 1947 film adaptation directed by Carol Reed and starring James Mason. This edition, the first in over 30 years, features a new introduction by Adrian McKinty.
