Strong to the Bone: A Caitlin Strong Novel

Jon Land. Forge, $26.99 (368p) ISBN 978-0-7653-8464-5
Thriller Award–finalist Land’s epic ninth novel featuring Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong (after 2016’s Strong Cold Dead) offers a double-barreled dose of Strongs: in 1944, Caitlin’s grandfather Earl Strong, also a Texas Ranger, looks into three murders at a German POW camp in Texas; in the present, DNA evidence from an Austin crime scene indicates that the man who raped Caitlin 18 years earlier is still at large. Meanwhile, Dylan Masters, the son of Caitlin’s lover, Cort Wesley Masters, has the misfortune to get on the wrong side of Ryan Fisker, the son of Armand Fisker, who deals in drugs on an international scale. Fortunately, clairvoyant warrior Guillermo Paz shows up at opportune times to save Dylan from the bad guys. Readers won’t be too surprised to learn that Caitlin and Cort are battling the same evils that Earl and others sought to destroy in the 1940s. Texas Rangers enjoy almost mythic status, and Land unapologetically celebrates their heroism in the exploits of Caitlin and her kin. Agent: Natalia Aponte, Natalia Aponte Literary Agency. (Dec.)
