Black Love Signs : An Astrological Guide to Passion, Romance and Relationships for African Americans (aka Sexy Black Sun Signs: An Astrological Guide to Love and Romance for African-Americans) dHe first chapters tedious and boring I wanted to read a McKinty book Io love the Sean Duffy series but the layout of the whole story reminded me to something written by Karin Slaughter or the recent ones of Stephen King The Institute Even though the story takes up speed and is of course becoming so thrilling that I had to finish the book in 24 hours it remained inconvincing to Me I Find It Not Well Thought Out Somehow Incomplete I find it not well thought out somehow incomplete if it is okay to say so too much all american for my liking Oh I so wanted to give this 5 I m such a huge fan of McKintyYes it s a cracking read Yes it ll make a great film in the right hands Yes it will bring McKinty into the spotlight But and it s a BIG but for me it could have been written by anyone and set anywhere whereas his other novels are so Manipulation and Dark Psychology distinctive in voice place tone and the characters are real originals with heart and soulThat said The Chain is fast paced and keeps you hanging in there Would I read it a second time No and I ll probably pass it on to a friend telling him it s a perfect holiday read However he s not getting his hands on my other McKinty books I m going to be re reading them He can go and buy his own Dieses Buch hat mich von Beginn an gefesselt Manchmal musste ichas Buch weg legen um kurz Luft zu holen weil ich ie Spannung nicht mehr ertragen konnteEin gro artiger Thriller vom besten Krimiautor in englischer Sprache I got the The Chain as a galley and I must say it was a surprise Adrian McKinty announced this standalone novel as something wicked and the standalone novel as something wicked and the really is wicked and very ifferent from all the previous ones However we meet some places which are familiar from The eath yard Newburyport and Plum IslandAnd of course we find references to Ballard Kierkegaard Novalis and to good old Bow Whisky like in the Duffy SeriesAlthough The Chain is on a topic which usually is not my cup of tea I on t know which magic McKinty uses after the first couple of pages it took to get into the story I liked it If like is the right word *HERE THIS IS NOT A NICE * This is not a nice not a simple story It is a story of utter fear and Understanding Shutter Speed desperation of people who are all of a sudden cast in an extreme situation a tragicalilemma in an Aristotelian way where whatever you can The Mother I Carry: A Memoir of Healing from Emotional Abuse do is wrong and puts guilt on you It raisins some very fundamental uestions How far would you go to save your loved ones Is crime in the intent or in theeed itselfHalf through the book you think the story has come to a conclusion but that is where it only really starts and from there it Anthology of Articles on African Linguistics and Literature develops into a furious showdown and a satisfying finaleAll in all this book proves how versatile and multi faceted McKinty s talent is I strongly recommend it and I hope it will get the success iteserve.
