One Kick by Chelsea Cain

One Kick by Chelsea Cain
Simon & Schuster
Publication Date:  August 19, 2014
Date Read:  May 3, 2014

I received an advance reader edition of this book from Simon & Schuster and Net Galley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

4 Stars!

When I saw the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book, I was more than a little excited.  I have read all of the books in the Gretchen Lowell series (some more than once actually) so I knew that I enjoy Chelsea Cain's writing.  This book did not disappoint!  Chelsea Cain is a master at writing characters that are deeply troubled.  She puts that skill to use in this book.

One note of warning for some readers:  This book is focused on crimes against children including, child pornography.  Any readers who wish to avoid these subjects will want to avoid this book.   

Kick was abducted by a stranger when she was 6 years old.  She learned to survive in that environment until she was rescued 6 years later.  As an adult, she finds herself dealing with the emotional scars directly connected to that time.  Anytime an Amber alert is issued, she searches hoping to save that child from what she has been through.

Bishop approaches Kick and asks for her help in finding two children that have recently been kidnapped.  Kick's knowledge may be the key to finding these children.  Bishop and Kick work together in some very dangerous situations trying to find the victim in time.

This book was filled with troubled characters dealing with issues from their past.  All of these characters came together to tell a story that was hard to put down.  I would definitely recommend this book to others.  I look forward to reading future books in the series.
