Strong at the Break: A Caitlin Strong Novel

Jon Land. Forge, $25.99 (352p) ISBN 978-0-7653-2337-8
An outlandish, violent plot sets up a high-stakes showdown in Land's third novel featuring Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong (after Strong Justice). Three cases that at first appear unrelated put Caitlin on a collision course with Malcolm Arno's Patriot Sun organization. Arno is the son of Maxwell Arno, whose Church of the Redeemer cult was brought down by Strong's Ranger father, Jim. A stakeout while on a joint Canadian-U.S. drug force in Quebec ends in a bloody confrontation with Hell's Angels; Iraq war vet Mark John Serles claims the Army targeted him with the IED that blew off his legs; and the 16-year-old son of Strong's friend, outlaw Cort Wesley Masters, goes missing. This perfect storm of events sends Strong from Canada to Mexico to Washington, D.C., in an effort to prevent Arno's attempts to unleash the deadliest arsenal ever employed against domestic targets by American "patriots." Series fans should enjoy the plentiful fireworks. (June)
