"One Kick" by Chelsea Cain is a Book We Both Liked

One Kick by Chelsea Cain is about Kick, a woman who was abducted as a child by a man offering to help her find her dog, Monster.   She is 21 when the story starts and has trained to protect herself.  She knows how to pick locks, can shoot, throw knives, and is into martial arts.  Because of what happened to her, she is obsessed with finding two missing children close to her area.  Kick reluctantly joins forces with Bishop , a former weapons dealer, to find the abducted children because he says he needs her help.  Kick is haunted by old memories as they work together and gets more than she bargained for.

This is quite a story that looks at the world of child pornography but focuses on the life of a victim who lived through it.  I liked Kick, the main character, and the interesting relationships she had with Frank, the FBI agent who found her, Bishop, who she joined forces with and Mel, her abductor.    I found it hard to put this one down .  This is the first installment of an ongoing series.

One Kick by Chelsea Cain is about a young girl who was kidnapped and held for years.  Now rescued, she meets a man who wants her help in finding other kids that have been abducted.  She might even find some answers that are still unresolved in her ordeal.  It's a page turner, but I would have liked more action.  The ending was really good though and I liked seeing how it all plays out.
