AUTHORS OUT LOUD

New York Times bestselling author Chelsea Cain's mystery One Kick received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Booklist and was named a "Summer Must" by Entertainment Weekly. The novel's heroine, Kick Lannigan, was famously kidnapped at age six and captured the hearts of the American public when she was rescued five years later. At age twenty-one, she finds herself entangled in a missing child case that will force her out of the secure world she meticulously built.
