The third book in the addictive Gordan Hudde series finds the title character — a former soldier and CIA man — settling into civilian life in rural Georgia. Following a series of child abductions, the local sheriff enlists Hudde’s help in tracking down what turns out to be a multinational operation that steals kids for sex trafficking, body-parts trading and illegal adoptions. Graphic and violent, the gritty manuscript powers along relentlessly. Hudson conveniently drops characters from his narrative, and holes can be poked in the plot, but it’s hard not to root for a hero like Hudde.
