Review: One Kick

One Kick
One Kick by Chelsea Cain

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kathleen Lannigan was abducted at the age of six while looking for her dog. During an FBI pornography bust, she is rescued and returned to her family. After her name being changed every six months, she decides she wants to be called Kick. That name becomes prophetic when she learns to defend herself with weapons and just her body. The concentration to train with these skills helps her cope with her PTSD. It has been nearly ten years and she is still obsessed with child abductions. When two children go missing in the same month, she wonders if they are related. Then a man named Bishop shows up at her place and wants Kick’s help to rescue these children. He feels her experience as a victim will give her greater insight into what is going on. What Kick doesn’t know is that this case is closer to her own than she could possibly imagine.

One Kick is the first book a new series that will appeal to readers of thrillers. Kick is a strong female protagonist that will not let her previous victimization pull her down. Cain has created a back story that will pull the heartstrings of any reader and builds a foundation for future books that will bring readers back for more. Although very few of us will ever experience what Kick has gone through, we are able to understand the trauma and become more involved with the story. Readers of Cain’s Gretchen Lowell series will not be disappointed with this new series.
