    meaning of chain

    "I also want you to send a message up the chain of whatever backroom machinery is driving this
    that if I so much as smell Leona Lansing's perfume on any of this,
    I'm going to make a meal out of both of you and I won't stop until I'm done."

    Hi.

    Does this chain mean... a kind of people in a cabal who are plotting something?

    Re: meaning of chain

    Does chain here mean "people or things which are connected or next to each other forming a line"?

    No, it means the hierarchy of people in charge.
