Famously kidnapped at age six, Kick Lannigan captured America's hearts when she was rescued five years later. Now 21, she finds herself unexpectedly entangled in a missing child case that will put her talents to the test. Trained as a marksman, lock picker, escape artist, and bomb maker by her abductor, Kick could not return to the life of the average young girl after her release. So, in lieu of therapy, she mastered martial arts, boxing, and knife throwing and learned how to escape from the trunk of a car, jimmy a pair of handcuffs, and walk without making a sound — all before age 13. Kick has trained herself to be safe. But then two children go missing in three weeks. With lives hanging in the balance, Kick is set to be the crusader she has always imagined herself to be. A heart-stopping, entertaining thrill ride, One Kick (Simon & Schuster) announces the arrival of a blistering new series by Chelsea Cain, author of the critically acclaimed Archie Sheridan/Gretchen Lowell thrillers.
Synopses & Reviews
Detective Archie Sheridan just has to get through the next few days, then his birthday and Halloween will be over. But with escaped serial killer Gretchen Lowell on the loose, the investigation into the murder of a DEA agent demanding his attention, and journalist Susan Ward showing up at his apartment needing a favor, its going to be a long weekend.
Soon Archie finds himself crashing a masked ball on a private island owned by Jack Reynolds, a notorious local drug kingpin. By morning, Archie is back on pain killers, a guest is dead and Archie quickly realizes that little is what it seems. One thing is clear: Gretchen is back, and Archie's nemesis and sometimes lover has something special in mind for the birthday boy, something she's been planning for a long, long time. On Halloween Eve, with time running out, and the life of someone close to Archie on the line, Archie knows his only chance is to give Gretchen exactly what she wants. But Gretchen will prove more horrifying, and unpredictable, than Archie could ever imagine.
Back with her most thrilling novel yet, Chelsea Cain delivers the pinnacle of what fans of this series have come to expect: sex, murder, twists, dark wit, and some of the best characters in the genre.
