Third book in the Ukiah Oregon Novels. This one starts right after the last one ended. Ukiah returns to his hometown and immediately gets called to help find a missing boy. There is urgency to finding the boy as he may be the latest in a string of kidnapped children. Then Ukiah discovers the existence of a cult which have photos of Ukiah and his son, but he has no idea why, and Homeland security is asking a lot of questions. Things become even more complicated and worrying when Ukiah's son Kittanning gets abducted. Now Ukiah and his family are completely distraught and follow every lead they can to find him. This book felt rather stressful to read - I think because much of it was paced fast, with little or no breaks in action (I remember only one), but there is little chance for a break when the protagonist's son is kidnapped. Ukiah is more mature without the reliance on Max he had before, and there is no search for his past and who he is here, though of course he cannot escape it. Also unlike the 1st and 2nd books of this series, this book ends with a feeling of "to be continued".. there are a few big loose ends which will probably be addressed in the fourth installment. A little bit of a transition book.
