From the author of the critically acclaimed New York Times bestselling Archie Sheridan/Gretchen Lowell thrillers: The first in a nail-biting new series featuring Kick Lannigan, a young woman whose complicated past has given her a very special skill set. Famously kidnapped at age six, Kick captured America's hearts when she was rescued five years later. Now, twenty-one, 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; learned how to escape from the trunk of a car, jimmy a pair of handcuffs, and walk without making a sound-all before she was thirteen. Kick has trained herself to be safe. But then two children go missing in three weeks, and an enigmatic and wealthy former weapons dealer approaches her with a proposition. John Bishop uses his fortune and contacts to track down missing children. Not only is he convinced Kick can help recover the two children-he won't take no for an answer. With lives hanging in the balance, Kick is set to be the crusader she has always imagined herself. Little does she know that the answers she and Bishop seek are hidden in one of the few places she doesn't want to navigate-the dark corners of her own mind. A heart-stopping, entertaining, thrill ride, One Kick announces the arrival of a blistering new series by a stunning talent in the thriller realm.

An interesting start to a new series and a rather mixed bag.
Kick Lannigan is one angry, damaged, hurt and slightly unbalanced personality. Her love of weapons makes her appear very violent. Her anger makes her very slow on the uptake throughout this book. Her lack of understanding (due to anger issues & not taking in the facts) cause a lot of trouble and danger for herself and those around her.
This book is uneven in its execution but it has it's moments. There's a lot of background to Kit's situation and Chelsea Cain spends a lot of time setting up the personality situations. Therefore, it could be that this book would be a bit uneven due to it being mostly a set-up for the books to follow.
I will be reading the second in this series when it comes out. There's enough of a mystery left in the last pages to keep me coming back. With all the set-up complete, the second book should be more riveting.
A decent but slow start to a new series.
