Gone

Editorial reviews

Gone

A dark, dangerous journey into evil to find the vanished children, and entirely hide-away-until-you-finish-it gripping.

Ms. Cain’s new book, “One Kick,” is the auspicious start of another series that intermingles victimization and romance. But this one is capable of reaching a much broader audience because it is far less gruesome, at least by Ms. Cain’s standards.

“One Kick” is well engineered and fast-paced, and its troubling subject matter is suggested rather than spelled out, avoiding gratuitous horror.
