One Kick by Chelsea Cain

Cain's new character Kick is my current favorite heroine crime fighter. Having survived being kidnapped as a child, Kick, now grown up, is still struggling with those years she was held captive. Ever on the alert and determined to never be a victim again she reluctantly teams up with a man of means to find other captive children. What's his angle?  A quick and engaging read. Can't wait for the next book!
