Nice idea but......

The Chain - Adrian McKinty

Nice idea but lost my attention very quickly. A phone call is received and the caller instructs you to kidnap a victim. If you do not follow his instructions then your child, who is being held captive, will be executed. The chain is a very mediocre read with a central theme that is much too repetitive and shallow to be taken seriously as a crime novel.
