One Kick

Chelsea Cain. Simon & Schuster, $25.99 (320p) ISBN 978-1-4767-4978-5
Bestseller Cain (Let Me Go) introduces a truly compelling new heroine, Kit “Kick” Lannigan, in this stellar first in a new thriller series. Kick made national headlines when she was kidnapped at age six and again when the FBI rescued her five years later. But being in captivity, even with a relatively benevolent kidnapper, took its emotional toll, and the now 21-year-old Kick, who lives in Portland, Ore., is obsessed with child abductions. In particular, the disappearance of Adam Rice and Mia Turner piques her interest—and triggers her guilt for the role she once played in ensuring the anonymity of a vast ring of child pornographers. When the mysterious John Bishop, a former arms dealer turned private security man, asks her to help find Adam and Mia, Kick knows she can’t say no. Kick has little to go on, except her ability to see the situation through the eyes of the children. Readers will want to see a lot more of the feisty Kick. Agent: Joy Harris, Joy Harris Literary Agency. (Aug.)
