One Kick

Abuse. Kick Lannigan is the protagonist of a new series by Chelsea Cain, and is introduced to readers in a novel titled, One Kick. Kick was abducted by a child pornographer at age six, rescued five years later, and is now twenty one. Cain explores various aspects of child abuse in the novel, injects Kick with lock picking and self-defense skills, and requires her to come to terms with her past. The action in this thriller moves quickly, the images are vivid, and the characters are presented with care and precision. Squeamish readers may find the violence hard to read. By the end of the novel, I came to understand Kick more fully, and wonder what Cain will do in the next installment. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase One Kick from
