It won’t take listeners long to get hooked on narrator Heather Lind’s interpretation of Kick Lannigan. Kick, now 21 years old, was kidnapped as a child and rescued from a child pornography ring five years later. Lind expertly weaves Kick’s obsession with weapons and physical fitness as well as the continual flashbacks that are part of Kick’s present-day life. Lind’s control over the characters in Kick’s circle—her publicity-seeking mother; her pretend brother, James; and even Mel, the kidnapper—is impeccable. John Bishop, Kick’s new, mysterious friend, coerces her into helping him search for two recently kidnapped children. As Lind rips through their adventures, this audiobook crackles with the duo’s fierceness to succeed. It all adds up to an engrossing beginning to this series and a daring performance by Lind. E.E.S.
