Cain’s new series starts with a thrill ride featuring heroine Kick Lannigan, who was abducted as a child and now feels compelled to find missing children. Cain’s trademark complex and conflicted characters blur the line between good, not so good and truly evil, with troubling emotions and reactions by ... well, just about everybody. Masterful storytelling!

Kick Lannigan was abducted at age 6 and rescued five years later. During that time, she forgot even her own name and formed an attachment to her abductor, who taught her how to hide, how to pick locks and other survival skills. Now Kick is approached by John Bishop, a mysterious man who wants her help in tracking two missing children. Bishop wants Kick to visit her abductor, an old man dying in prison; he could provide clues since he was part of a child trafficking and child pornography network. Kick must confront her past in order to save the children. (SIMON & SCHUSTER, Aug., 320 pp., $25.99)
